Ahead of a Button Factory performance in Dublin over the weekend, the one and only John Cooper Clarke called into the Hot Press office for a chat with Roisin Dwyer.

The punk poet also read us a haunting poem titled 'Get Back On Drugs, You Fat Fuck', inspired by the shouts that have greeted him in his hometown of Manchester since he gave up the drugs!
