next year I’ll take the International Brigade
I missed John Cooper Clarke when I was over in Edinburgh. The famous punk-poet, who opened gigs for everyone from Joy Division (see Control) to The Fall is thankfully coming to Whelan’s late in September, with a gig planned for Tuesday the 21st. Excellent.
