Jarvis by Jarvis Cocker

'Jarvis' was the 2006 debut solo album from Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker. It continued on from where Pulp left off, setting Jarv's usual witty asides amongst his maturing sound that is at times not unlike fellow Sheffield dweller Richard Hawley. This reissue has been overseen by Jarvis himself and comes complete with a 7" of classic single 'Running the World'.

Never thought for a minute I'd one day be reviewing the debut album by JARVIS COCKER. Well, as I kinda expected he's doing the middle aged thing & writing slow, mature Britpop with country touches, & atmospheric piano laden ballads. A kinda Richard Hawley easy crooner vibe in parts. All very Mojo reader paced but there's summat about Jarvis that's just so adorably crap, you totally overlook the fact this is music piped into the toilets at the Slug & Lettuce. Now, Pulp got overexposed in my mind. They had a surreal magic that went awry when they remained in the public eye too long & whilst Cocker's lyrics are still occasionally fantastic (see 'Fat Children') this is probably like a weak John Lennon album to a Beatles fan. However, if you love the man, then give him some cash cause he needs a new wardrobe the lanky retro tramp. G/fold LP (which has now sold out.. Sorry- Phil xx)/CD (look for the Nick Drake syndrome pics)
