John Cooper Clarke + Mike Garry
"An evening of satirical, thought-provoking and hilarious poems and monologues from the legendary "Bard Of Salford"
Plus a special guest."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
Britain’s best loved and most important performance poet, John Cooper Clarke is as vital now as he was in the '70s. His biting, satirical, political and very funny verse, delivered in a unique rapid-fire performance style, resonated with the punk movement. JCC toured with all the seminal bands, from The Sex Pistols to The Clash, until he soon began to draw large crowds in his own right.
His influence needs only to be heard in the satirical and keen social observations of the songs of the Arctic Monkeys. Alex Turner cites JCC as a huge inspiration and this was recently demonstrated by Turner as the band covered JCC’s 'I Wanna Be Yours' on their critically acclaimed fifth studio album 'AM'.

The true poet laurete of Manchester, Mike Garry's emotive and powerful poetry is funny, dark and intense. His performance is so powerful that he captures a room with the power of his haunting words that are the best description of modern Mancunia and by extension any modern British city.
