Now then what could be better than a scruffy literary magazine with contributions from the likes of John Cooper Clarke, Irvine Welsh and long-time le cool fave Kirsty Allison? Well how about a party thrown by that self-same literary mag? Because it’s clear that Cold Lips has some fun friends. The mighty John Cooper Clarke will be performing (in surely the most bijoux of his gigs this year), there are two drummers (Dave Barbarrossa and Chris Musto from Bow Wow Wow and Johnny Thunders respectively) and a set from drone-rock legend Will Carruthers from the Spacemen 3. Throw in Sean McCluskey DJing (always a treat) and a bunch of poets, musicians and ne-er-do-wells and you have the recipe for a hugely creative, confusing, night out. Can’t wait.
