John Cooper Clarke : Melbourne : live review

John took to the stage at 9:40 pm, with the classic “Guest List” poem. The sell out crowd lapped it up.
Before flying into “Hire Car” his famous one line anecdotes punched into every soul in there.
He then moved on to the classic “Things Are Gonna Get Worse” and “Rotten Here In Jail”.
There was one persistent heckler, who crossed the line and was promptly shot down in flames by Johnny Clarke.
He then moved onto the moving Beasley Street, before doing the amazing reworked version entitled; “Beasley Boulevard”

The venue, Northcote Social Club in Melbourne, was ready made for Clarkey, and with the electric atmosphere he closed the show with the classic “Evidently Chickhentown” before going back to give the punters one more classic “I’ve Fallen In Love With My Wife”

The The gig was a sellout and could have quite easily sold out the next night as well. A special mention to Johnny Green who stories about The Clash are always amazing.

  8. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  9. I like this post, enjoyed this one thanks for putting up. “To affect the quality of the day that is the art of life.” by Henry David Thoreau.
