‘ A family affair, we break ornaments and get them repaired’ – John Cooper Clark
It’s been a family day today in a manner of speaking. I switched on the radio in the car this morning and just caught the back end of an interview with the great punk poet and favourite of mine John Cooper-Clarke. He finished off in reflective mood with the playing of his poem ( set to music ) of A Family Affair from his album Snap, Crackle and Bop. An Anthology of John’s work is out soon and not before time.
