Leak Of The <s>Week</s> <s>Day</s> Afternoon: A Visit With ‘Jarvis’

Oct 13th, 2006 // 4 Comments

Former Pulp lead singer Jarvis Cocker’s new album, Jarvis, comes out in the UK on Nov. 13; we haven’t heard anything about a US release date, but if the shoddy treatment received by Pulp’s final album is any indication, some Stateside label will probably wait six months or so before figuring out that Jarvis is a pretty excellent album, packed with world-weariness and clever asides. We especially like “Fat Children,” which sounds like a sequel to Pulp’s sublime “Monday Morning,” only with a beyond-the-grave lyrical take.

    That’s funny; so now as the aging crackheaded Mis-Shapers grow up (and begin eating) their party will be called “Fat Children”. Thanks, Jarvis, for having a keen sense of irony.

    On a side note, anyone diggin’ Charlotte Gainsbourg’s latest? I hear it was touched by a Cock[er].

    It’s on OINK now, so sit tight — it should hit the rest of the P2P world soon, I would imagine. But you totally didn’t hear that from me.
