“Snap, Crackle And Bop” by John Cooper Clarke - album review

« album.png »

TJR says

For his fourth album, the incomparable 31-year-old Punk-Poet continued with his tried and trusted formula of working with fellow Salfordians Martin Hannett (producer) and Steve Hopkins (keyboards). The collaboration hits a creative peak; this is clearly the best yet and houses many cuts which would remain as Cooper Clarke staples well into the 21st century, including “Evidently Chickentown”, “Conditional Discharge” and “Beasley Street” from side one, with “Thirty Six Hours” and “The It Man” on side two. The man’s a national treasure, and no mistake.
