I originally posted this almost six years ago, John Cooper Clarke’s Beasley Street, and I was comparing Cooper Clarke to Bob Dylan. The original piece I linked to kept disappearing from YouTube. It’s now back up again, in a truncated form, so I’ll post it once more with regard to the Grenfell Tower fire…
Once I can find and save a full version of this particular version I’ll whack it up under my own web space, for posterity. I don’t think John Cooper Clarke will mind if I do this.
You can find my full post about John Cooper Clarke here. Once again, this was six years ago and a few of the YouTube vids are no longer available, although I am trying to find replacements.
When it comes to YouTube, Google, et al, we are in 1984-Land.
People need to understand this.
