Evidently - John Cooper Clarke

Radio Times
Review by:
Geoff Ellis

With his punk-flavoured verse delivered in a Salford lilt and his Bob Dylan-on-speed looks, John Cooper Clarke remains resolutely outside mainstream entertainment. Here’s a celebration of an outsider whose work sums up an era yet remains as sharply entertaining as ever.

From Bill Bailey to Plan B, Steve Coogan to Kate Nash, there’s a long queue of admirers.
