SONG OF THE WEEK #108: John Cooper Clarke - "Conditional Discharge"

It's a shame John Cooper Clarke hasn't had a new album in more than 30 years. All the more reason, then, to keep getting back to 1980's Snap, Crackle and Bop, arguably his greatest, most consistent LP ever (well, to be fair, he only had a few). The bouncy "Conditional Discharge" is, in essence, a brilliant pop song - with fantastic lyrics and just as much charisma as Mark E. Smith. But more... sober?..
