Details of Anne Clark and the Ticket Luck value
Anne, a popular name in the music industry gained recognition because of uniqueness present in every project she undertakes.
Audiences from all over the world, from all ages and all backgrounds follow her. Anne's work has reached an even wider audience.
People had followed her career for years via smuggled tapes and distant radio broadcasts in East Germany, Poland, Russia, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and Romania. Now her texts are used by students in these countries studying English.
Anne Clark was born in Croydon, South London on May 14th 1960 to an Irish mother and a Scottish father. She left school at sixteen. The constraints of her school education however couldn't nullify her unquenchable craving for music, books, curiosity and practical need to be involved with the world around her.
She took a number of jobs including working as a care assistant in a psychiatric hospital and then taking a job at Bonaparte Records, a local independent record store and label. The punk rock scene was just about to explode into life in London.
Dealing with Warehouse Theatre
For 18 months Anne went to them with the idea of putting on shows/acts that were emerging from the punk and new wave scene. Anne worked as an unpaid administrator there for almost 2 years - selling out nights at the theatre featuring acts such as Paul Weller, Linton Kwesi-Johnson, French & Saunders, The Durutti Column, Ben Watt etc etc...
Experimenting with new themes
All the while Anne was experimenting with music and text and made her own debut performance at Richard Strange's Cabaret Futura in London along with Depeche Mode.
Anne was also involved in a number of television projects including programmes for the BBC and a film for Channel 4, Sketch For Someone, which she wrote the script for and which contained contributions from Patrik Fitzgerald and The Durutti Column.
Release of First Album
Anne's songwriting experiments came to fruition with the release of her first album The Sitting Room in 1982. This featured collaborations with Dominic Appleton, latterly of This Mortal Coil and Breathless.
Working with David
During her time at the Warehouse Anne met David Harrow, co-writer on her second album Changing Places in 1983, Joined Up Writing in 1984 and Hopeless Cases in 1987. Anne and David's curiosity with keyboards, synths and samplers led them to create songs and sounds that would provide blueprints for the electronic music of the 80s and 90s - Sleeper In Metropolis........Our Darkness...
Annes Growing Popularity
