Jarvis Cocker

Despite not being sold-out — maybe a little surprising? — and joking he was “knackered” and grabbng for water after opening with “Angela,” Jarvis put all of himself into last night’s show at the Wiltern in Los Angeles. There were jumps and dance moves. He even did the worm. (Really.) Opening the night were Little Joy, the band best known as a Strokes side-project, playing without the Stroke in the project. Apparently Fab is off making a record with Nickel Eye and that Phrazes For The Young guy and etc.? Photographer Andrew Youssef kindly files these photos. And on the Jarvis front, here’s a cool remix of “You’re In My Eyes (Discosong)” by Pilooski.

    Ol’ Jarvis sure is aging gracefully. I want to be him when I’m middle-aged.

    Jarvis was great, despite the lack of “…running the world”

    What was not great was Noel Fielding from the Mighty Boosh (wearing a mondo poncho) talking all the way through Big Julie. Well, that and the guy who thought he was at an Agnostic Front show and kept trying to start fights.

    not saying that jarvis couldn’t have imagined the eyeballs in hand on his own, but I’m also not putting it past him that he didn’t steal that from early press photos of sonic youth/thurston moore… or that thurston moore stole it from somebody else… so I guess I’m not saying anything at all.

    seems kind of Guillermo Del Toro’s “Pan’s Labyrinth” monster-esque to me..

  6. Jarvis can really rock a suit.

    guys, the mustachioed man who plays with little joy is nick valensi, so fabs’ absence can’t be explained by the strokes recording

    The Mustachioed Man Is not Nick Valensi. He is the bass player in a band called the Dead Trees.
