Information

Performing Artists


John Cooper Clarke shot to prominence in the 1970s as the original ‘people’s poet’.

His unique poetry writing and rapidfire delivery style was recorded and put to music by lengederary producer Martin Hannett and a band of Mancunian superstars, such as Buzzcocks Pete Shelley and The Durutti Columns Vinnie Reilly.

Seminal tracks such as Beasley St and Evidently Chickentown featured on the massive hit album Snap Crackle and Bop, one of 4 big selling original album releases on Sony Records in the late 70s and early 80s. They established John as one of the most prolific artistes of the Punk years.
Today, JCC is as relevant and vibrant as ever and his influence just as visible on today’s pop culture. Aside from his trademark ‘look’ continuing to resonate with fashionistas young and old, and his poetry included on national curriculum syllabus, his effect on modern music is huge.

His influence can be heard within the keen social observations of the Arctic Monkeys and Plan B amongst many others. John has been involved in two recent global number one albums. The Arctic Monkeys putting one of John's best loved poems, I Wanna Be Yours, to music on their critically acclaimed and the best selling album world wide in 2013-14, A:M.

JCC's collabaration with Plan B, Ill Manors spawned a best selling soundtrack album and a hard hitting movie.
