Product description

Product Description

Documentary which records and celebrates the life and works of 'punk poet' John Cooper Clarke, looking at his life as a poet, a comedian, a recording artist and revealing how he has remained a significant influence on contemporary culture over four decades.

With a bevy of household names from stand-up comedy, lyricists, rock stars and cultural commentators paying homage to him, the film reveals Salford-born Cooper Clarke as a dynamic force who remains as relevant today as ever, as successive generations cite him as an influence on their lives, careers and styles.

From Bill Bailey to Plan B, Steve Coogan to Kate Nash and Arctic Monkeys front man Alex Turner to cultural commentators such as Miranda Sawyer and Paul Morley, the film exposes the life behind one of Britain's sharpest and most witty poets - a national treasure.

Having loved JCC since 1978, or something, I was excited by the documentary. Its great because you see a fair bit of His Johnness, but I got sick if the 'celebs' going on about how great he is. I would have liked less of them and more of him. They are not interesting and he is. Here's the thing though, its still a canny documentary, like.

New and entertaining dvd release from the bbc and its about time someone put out a dvd of this legend,chock full of visual delights,and some cool extras too..but my only minor complaint(being a hardcore fan of 30+ years) is it misses out on key albums like"Zip Style Method" and the documentry covers/talks about certain singles but misses out on others?....apart from that minor niggle its a joy to watch. 8/10.

Didn't pick up on John Cooper Clarke at 'the time' as I was living abroad. Then I recently saw this docufilm on TV and was bowled over. Wow he's a modern day 'Manchester Poet' who rivals the latter day 'Liverpool Poets'. He's the punk Mcgough'. Poetry is alive, well and grows in his hands.

The big plus for me was the uncut version of Evidently Chicken Town no bleeper just a wonderful poem as it was (is) meant to be heard ffffffffffffffffab

This man needs far greater recognition as he is clever, witty and a wordsmith of merit.

This DVD is a great introduction to an uncompromising man who makes poetry exciting and, more importantly, accessible.

That's my experience - definitely worth watching. Enjoyable appreciation of the massive talent and character of one John Cooper Clarke, plus a mini history of his life so far. I found it absorbing. He's still here and performing, which is gratifying for his sake and others, considering some of his story... Anyway, I like him, and he's accessible - I met him once at a gig, and he's a nice guy!
