View Full Version : Stupidly Excited.

I was emailing around all the local festivals and fairs looking for work and we got asked to play on this bill:
John Cooper Clarke!?!
Yeah - I know - he's at a stage of his career where he's accepting invites from little festivals in hick towns like ours. Don't care. Excited to hear him live and excited to be on the same bill.

If I was on the bill with JCC I too would be thrilled!

Clarke is legendary, and for good reasons.

I loved JCC when I was a younger fella living in Wellington.
. Haven't listened to anything for an age so I'd better swot up in case I bump into him backstage.

This really was a case of "you get nothing that you don't ask for" (or however that saying should go).
I went through the events listings websites, found local fairs, festivals and events and emailed the organisers one by one "Hi, we're the Ukes of Hazard...do you need anymore entertainment at your festival,,,,etc".

Ever since I heard Kung Fu International I have always thought he was brilliant. You are very lucky.
