Jarvis Covers Talking Heads, Black Sabbath

By Stereogum / February 19, 2007

Mr. Cocker was the closing act at the Shockwaves NME Awards Show at the Astoria in London Saturday night, where he treated the crowd to Jarvis tunes and some choice covers. He scoffed at a “Common People” request (“this band are not Pulp”), but doing Ozzy and Byrne was consolation enough. Watch ‘em now, before Viacom claims proprietary ownership of Talking Heads covers. The quality’s not great, but the audio is good enough to sing along to. And you can make out Jarvis’s sweet moves to “Paranoid.”

“Heaven” after the jump.
