John Cooper Clarke – Valley of the Long Lost Women (1978)

Happy (route) 66th birthday to John Cooper Clarke tonight! Never kind Robbie Burns!

Way too smart for punk rock …  sophisticated wordplay over killer melodies and beats – I had this on constant rotation in my most miserable summer of 1982. Things got better in due course!

John’s backing band, The Invisible Girls, featured Martin (Joy Division) Hannett on bass guitar and production – inventive, melodic and melancholic as the mood required.

She left her heart in ‘Frisco
She left her room in a mess
She left her hat in the disco
She never left her address
