Review in TYKES, by Nigel Schofield


Peggy and AJ tour together each November. This collection of ten songs is a summation of seven years of doing so. AJ has a keen eye for observation, a sharp wit for writing and a knack for turning phrases, evident in titles that make you wonder “what on earth could that be like? viz Routine Love, Irishman In Paris and Let Me Tell You How It Works.
This is not a reproduction of their stripped-back, seated live sound – aside from mandolin, Peggy plays electric and bass guitar; La Belle Julia Porter, who co-wrote the songs, adds piano and strings; Adrian Black provides entirely apt clarinet and Mark Walker plays chimes. The songs benefit from these added dimensions.
Try the full-on rock sound of Until the Wall Comes Down or Life’s got its own agenda, a song that could only otherwise exist if Jake Thackery had been transplanted to Basin Street!
There are songs that make you smile, songs to make you think and songs for which the only reaction is “yes – exactly”.
How can you resist a line like “I lost my religion in a poker game”?
The songs are all direct and involve you immediately, but the craft in writing, subtlety of narrative and deftness of observation all reward repeated listens. Even after one listen, those skilfully coined phrases will leap into your head – and you’ll thrash around to recall where it’s from…and when you remember, this album ends up in CD player: it’s an endlessly repeating cycle. Earworms that never get earworn.

Kilburn Village Institute  25.03.19

 This erudite and charming man provides entertainment of the highest quality. He is hailed as one of the countries leading singer  Another amazing musical experience at Kilburn Institute from  Anthony John Clarke and his pianist wife Julia. How can I describe Anthony John.....well, an accomplished and talented guitarist of course but those who had not heard him before were delighted to find him a wonderfully funny raconteur. He enthralled the audience for over 2 hours......singing very witty and verbally complex songs, telling stories........ think Victoria Wood on a good day crossed with Mike Harding Eric Clapton and an Irish accent! Our thanks to Anthony John and Julia for a very entertaining happy evening. 



TRUDY CLARKE, 5th April

"Loved your show at the Woodman from start to finish- music, songs, stories, tales and jokes all complimenting each other. Kevin and I watched your great DVD 'One more story to be told' today - just hope there's more to follow x"


MJ BALDSPUR JARVIS 6th April 2019

"Ellen Malin and I have seen Anthony John Clarke compere at Cropredy and always thought what a great bloke he seems. I have had interactions with him yet never seen him perform live. At last, tonight we saw him at the Queens Head, Belper -. it was evenbetter than I could have imagined.

A genuine, heartfelt and lovely man. The music was beautiful, and the connection between Anthony and his wife Julia is something to behold."
