Live4ever Exclusive: Love, Life and Laundry, with John McClure
Excerpt from Live4ever Ezine:
‘The Reverend’ , is clearly an old rocker at heart, in the classic tradition. He says “Older heads from the industry dig my band-they get that I’m like they are-that I’m a proper rock’n'roller. ‘I’m not, like one of these fucking guys whose gonna, like, start getting on his knees when James Corden or fucking Nick Grimshaw walks into the room. I don’t give a fuck who you are, mate…”.
He sometimes performs on stage with his friend, Mick Jones, from The Clash – and, in the past, legendary Mancunian punk poet, John Cooper Clarke – as well as counting several members of the rock’n'roll illuminati as mates, including Noel and Liam Gallagher.
” I’ve got a brilliant Liam story…” McClure chuckles ” We supported Oasis at Wembley, right. By the end of Oasis, they’ve got separate dressing rooms, and Noel had this party-and Liam came to Noel’s party…
Liam got me against a wall – not aggressively – and he’s talking to me…and he’s intense, right – and he went “What’s your favourite type of peas?”
So I said garden-and he said “Don’t you like mushy?” … “No, I like garden” …”You’re alright, you, mate”… Y’see, that’s his test. If I’d gone “Yeah, yeah maybe I do like mushy” – I’m a wanker. Understand me – cos that means I’m swayed…and that’s the test. I like that”.
” Noel’s great,man” McClure says ” I had posters of them lads on my bedroom wall, and for Noel to tell me he likes my music, it’s like the best thing ever”.
