Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

JOHN COOPER CLARKE : Innocents EP (1977)

"Innocents" was a four track EP, originally issued in 1977, and produced by the legendary Martin "Zero" Hannett. This is the debut recording in Clarke's small canon of work, though his live work continues to the present day.
He was seen in Film 4's showing of the Joy Division biopic "Control" recently, playing a younger version of himself, performing "Evidently Chickentown". He shared the bill with them on many occasions, also performing with The Fall,Buzzcocks, Magazine & the Sex Pistols. His backing band on several recordings & gigs were known as "The Invisible Girls", featuring Karl Burns (The Fall) & Pete Shelley (Buzzcocks). Although inmextricably associated with Manchester, he is actually from just over the Irwell, hence his nickname "The Bard of Salford".
I have previously posted Clarke's Glastonbury set from 1981, and will be featuring three albums in due course.
