DescriptionHis influence on others includes the satirical and keen social observations of the songs of the Arctic Monkeys (Alex Turner cites JCC as a huge inspiration), as well as platinum selling Plan B. Clarke's recording. Evidently Chickentown' was also used in the penultimate closing scene of one of modern TV's most famous and respected television shows, "The Sopranos". No bigger accolade and platitude of his work is that three of his poems are now in the GCSE syllabus, including the remarkable Twat. The revival of the 70s punk phenomenon over the last few years has seen a whole new generation clamouring over John's work and watched his star rocket once again. Continuing to write new work from his Colchester home, He has a plethora of new poems and monologues which he performs solo, alongside his best known works such as Beasley Street and Evidently Chickentown. His shows are always packed and his audience always leave ecstatic.
