Perfect Pop Pulp – New Album ‘BEYOND THE PALE’ By JARV IS…

19 July 2020

Band: Jarv Is… 
A six-piece collective led by maestro Jarvis Cocker
Album: Beyond The Pale
Released: 17 Juy 2020
Info: Jarv Is… is the first original music from Cocker since his 2009 solo LP Further Complications.  Jarv Is… was conceived as a way of writing songs in collaboration
with an audience.  As the material they were playing was in a state of flux the band decided to record their live shows so that they could monitor how the songs were developing.

NME says: “The Britpop legend tackles modernity and isolation on this danceable
debut with his new band, sharing his elder statesman wit and wisdom… Beyond
The Pale’ is a cracking addition to the Cocker canon, bursting with that Pulp knack
for nerdy melodrama and primed for the dancefloor… Beyond The Pale’ feels live,
kinetic and present – as well as weirdly prescient.”
Full review here. Score: 4/5

Key phrase: “Pop music was supposed to be a flash in the pan,
but here we are 50 years later and it means something to us,
and it always will do. It’s incredibly important.”
Paul Weller

JARVIS COCKER Is Back With Vibey Track ‘HOUSE MUSIC ALL NIGHT LONG’…

Reveries for the laziest day of the week

8 March 2020

Pulp’s flamboyant frontman JARVIS COCKER is back, solo, under the name of ‘JARVIS IS…’. His new track ‘HOUSE MUSIC ALL NIGHT LONG’ is a melancholic reflection, with a soft electronic disco vibe. Cocker looks back, hits the dance floor again, but he seems not
happy at all as nothing has changed since the early days.

Ten years ago in 2010 three great artists, three great voices performed
a magical version of Xmas classic SILENT NIGHT on Irish music show
Other Voices. A truly tender, intimate and goosebumps moment.

Here are JARVIS COCKER, LISA HANNIGAN and RICHARD HAWLEY

The original version of ‘Silent Night‘ was written in German by an Austrian school
teacher called Franz Xaver Gruber and first performed on Christmas Eve 1818 at
St Nicholas parish church in Oberndorf, a village in the Austrian Empire.

Frustrated UK Election Fans Of JARVIS COCKER Want Him At The Top Spot Of The Charts On Xmas Day With His 2006 Solo Track ‘RUNNING THE WORLD’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

20 December 2019

Last weekend two JARVIS COCKER fans, driven by their post-election depression, started a Facebook campaign to encourage other fans to stream and download Cocker‘s 2006 solo single ‘RUNNING THE WORLD‘ so that it could hit the top spot of the UK Singles Chart on Xmas Day. The protest song has become an anthem for all those who are sad, mad and frustrated with the result of last week’s UK election because of the track’s lyrics attacking political leaders:

“If you thought things had changed / Friend, you’d better think again /
Bluntly put, in the fewest of words: / Cunts are still ruling the world.”

Jarvis Cocker said he loved the initiative and campaign and immediately announced that he would be donating all proceeds from the single to the Homeless Charity Shelter.

Here’s a recent live version of ‘Running The World‘…

And here’s the original recording (full lyrics clip)
