Here’s a new collaboration with a line-up straight out of the 70’s peak punk era, pairing the poet John Cooper Clarke with main Stranglers man Hugh Cornwell. This Time It’s Personal is a set of fondly loved vintage songs covered by the pair, with Clarke unexpectedly doing the singing! Out on Sony no less.

7/10 Jack Customer review, 8th November 2016
I’d never heard much of singer John Cooper Clarke before. His delivery is rough and boozy, like that of an old drunk crooning to the songs of his youth, but his voice absolutely fits this project. I was disappointed that Hugh Cornwell doesn’t sing lead on any of the tracks but his guitar work is amazing for the way it sets the stage for Clarke’s loose delivery. If they make a second one together, I’d love to hear Hugh share vocal duties with Mr. Clarke, but I was thrilled with what Clarke brought to the proceedings.
