UK'S POET OF THE PEOPLE;  MOVIE STAR; ROCK STAR; TV & RADIO PRESENTER; COMEDIAN; SOCIAL & CULTURAL COMMENTATOR; SELF-CONFESSED POP PERSONALITY

In July 2013, Clarke was awarded an honorary doctorate of arts in "acknowledgement of a career which has spanned five decades, bringing poetry to non-traditional audiences and influencing musicians and comedians" by the University of Salford. 

"I say to people, have you heard of John Cooper Clarke and if they say, yes, yeah he's an absolute genius and you just go, 'oh - ok, you've saved me a lot of time" --Steve Coogan

"When I first saw John Cooper Clarke as support to The Clash, my two overwhelming impressions were God! He’s skinny, and, fucking hell! He’s brave. To appear in front of a Clash audience could be a terrifying experience and that was from behind the protection of a drum kit!  To stand alone with just a microphone reading poetry took some courage and conviction. John's poetry always has been funny, original, political and cutting." --Topper Headon (The Clash)

 

SON OF DAVE 

https://youtu.be/50xMHe0BlQ0

New school Old school, the number one-man harmonica beatbox eruption...Funk, blues, hip hop and soul, electronics with an edge, a devilish smile and energy worthy of the funkiest 50's swingers. 

Son of Dave, born Benjamin Darvill, started out in the blues and biker bars of Winnipeg, home to Crash Test Dummies in which he was a member as a young instrumentalist. For the past twenty years, he's lived in London (UK) while keeping his roots in R&B. His songs have made it to film and TV soundtracks including Breaking Bad and The Preacher. His newest album, MUSIC FOR COP SHOWS, is out now.
