The Night Before Self Aid (1986)
John Cooper Clarke, punk poet extraordinaire has been a regular visitor to these shores and to the Dave Fanning show. This is a recording of a 1986 visit in which John talks of an upcoming album ‘The Beat Goes Off’. This release has still to see the light of day but you can listen to some of it here. The recording was edited old school hence the occasional jump.
