Anne Clark, a poet who delivers her poetry within a world of experimental music, remains one of the great pioneers in her field. Her first album The Sitting Room was released in 1982. This was followed by three albums, Changing Places (1983), Joined up Writing (1984), and Hopeless Cases (1987), where she was joined by David Harrow, author of the music and producer. The singles, Sleeper in Metropolis, and Our Darkness became staples of the 1980s, and remain two of the great tracks of that era. In Part 1 of this two-part interview, Anne talks about her early family life, and how those experiences have former her.
