Glad to hear you're on the mend, Joe. I expect you got one of those 3D printed joints that are precisely matched to your anatomy. Yes that's a thing now.
I was unaware of this project, my collection of both gents is woefully lacking. I did just order 'Songs They Never Play On The Radio' by James Young. This is a book by the keyboardist in Nico's final backing band about life on the tragic side of rock. The connection here being that Cooper Clarke was a platonic roommate of Nico back in Manchester in the '80s. I believe he gets mentioned in the book. There used to be a tremendous amount of reading here in the pub, I feel I should catch up.
I wonder whether Martin would ever set any of Clarke's poetry to music. I wonder whether he's ever set anyone else's words to music. Hmmm.
