End Of The Road Festival 2010 In Photos

This past weekend Larmer Tree Gardens, near Salisbury, Wiltshire, hosted the fifth annual End Of The Road Festival. This year’s lineup continued the festival’s peripheral deviation from its folk, Americana, and alt-country roots, featuring Yo La Tengo, Black Mountain, Caribou, Iron & Wine, the Antlers, Wilco, Modest Mouse, Wolf Parade, The New Pornographers, Cymbals Eat… More »

Lykke, Jarvis, Karen O, Jack White, Brüno Vie For 2010 Oscars

The Academy has selected 63 songs that will contend for Best Song nominations for next year’s ceremony, and among them are songs not written by Randy Newman. Paul McCartney and U2 — “you may have heard of them” — both made the cut, of course. But dark horse Jarvis/”Petey” has a shot too. That movie… More »

New Jarvis Cocker Video – “Further Complications”

With all the news of Jarvis writing songs to soundtrack other people’s motion picture projects — some for the Forgetting Sarah Marshall sequel, one for Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox — it’s nice to have him soundtrack one of his own, here in this Stéphanie Di Guisto-directed clip for the title track from his FurtherMore »

New Jarvis Cocker – “Fantastic Mr. Fox AKA Petey’s Song”

Jarvis Cocker’s in banjo wrangling, jaw harp twanging mode for “Fantastic Mr. Fox AKA Petey’s Song,” a playful song about vittles and the handsome little fox in Wes Anderson’s Roald Dahl-inspired, Videogum-beloved Fantastic Mr. Fox. Cocker voices Petey in the film, and that’s your first look at him above. George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman,… More »

Green Man Festival 2009 In Photos

The eco-friendly Green Man took over Brecon Beacons, Wales this past weekend with a heavy dose of Americana: from midwestern folkies (Bon Iver, Wilco, Andrew Bird) to wailing east coast electropoppers (Animal Collective, Gang Gang Dance) and reinvigorated psych legends (Roky Erikson, Rodriguez) the lineup wasn’t significantly different than, say, Lollapalooza. But Green Man stand… More »

Jarvis Writing Songs For Forgetting Sarah Marshall Sequel

Cocker’s “rather silly” material will be performed by Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) in Get Him To The Greek. Jason Segel’s penis won’t be in it, but Diddy will (really). More at Billboard. More »

Jarvis Cocker Visits Jimmy Fallon, Escapes Wrath Of Questo

Last night Jarvis Cocker gave a spirited and loose-limbed performance of his Further Complications title track. He clearly enjoyed himself (and his magic hands). To further complicate things, though, there was a certain Roots drummer on site who was less than thrilled with the Pulp man’s presence. As Questo Tweeted during the evening’s festivities:… More »

Jarvis Cocker/Little Joy @ The Wiltern, Los Angeles 7/27/09

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… More »

French artist and Dirty Sound System collective member Pilooski, who has previously filed remixes for Mystery Jets and LCD Soundsystem, delivers a quirky, somewhat DFA-styled funk job on this reworking of Jarvis’s “You’re In My Eyes (Discosong),” from Cocker’s recent LP.

Jarvis Cocker Entertains French Children

Jarvis Cocker is halfway through a six day art installation at Paris’ Galerie Chappe, where he’s attempting to answer the question “What is music?” by creating “a musical event that is a living art form” (and promote his excellent new album Further Complications). On Tuesday, the public was invited to bring instruments and jam, and… More »

New Jarvis Cocker – “Angela”

Pulp hero Jarvis Cocker releases second solo collection Further Complications next month. It was produced by poker pro Steve Albini. How’d that happen? From Paste: “The two met while the former Pulp frontman was in Chicago for last year’s Pitchfork Music Festival; Jarvis paid a visit to Albini’s Electrical Audio studio to put some new… More »

Pitchfork Music Festival 2008: Saturday In Photos

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy

After a night of “classic” recreations, it was nice to dive into the current state of the indie landscape. Yesterday’s lineup was stacked, and we spent the day scissoring back and forth catching as much as possible, right through to Animal Collective’s relatively ornate light show to… More »

New Jarvis Cocker – “Girls Like It Too” (Live in Buenos Aires)

Looks like we have to go all the way to Argentina to hear the new cheekily titled Cocker tune, “Girls Like It Too.” Or, let somebody else go and check their YouTube. (Thanks for the tip, Lucas.) Jarvis knows his audience and surroundings well, peppering the background info on the boy/girl narrative with Argentinean slang… More »

Pete Doherty + Tribute To Disney Tunes = Babys In Shambles

Those in London next Sunday with no plans and a love for Jarvis Cocker and/or the The Jungle Book soundtrack are best advised to buy tix for “Forest Of No Return: Hal Willner presents the Vintage Disney Songbook,” a one-night only concert at South Bank’s Royal Festival Hall dedicated to celebrating moments in Disney music.

Jarvis Covers Talking Heads, Black Sabbath

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… More »

Jarvis And Damon’s Britpop Revival

We miss the good old days of Britpop for the music — but how about those feuds! None of this trumped up Kasabian shite. Perhaps in a call to our nostalgic funnybone, Damon took to the pages of Uncut to take some digs at old rival Jarvis Cocker’s infamous Jacko stage crash at the ’96… More »

New Jarvis Video – “Don’t Let Him Waste Your Time”

Here’s the clip for the smashing lead-track off Jarvis. You really shouldn’t take driving tips from Mr. Cocker, luv — but truth is Jarvis = cool even when he’s a pedestrian’s worst nightmare. More »

CSS Are Common People Like You

The Pulp fans in us live on and on, and with Jarvis, Mr. Cocker gave us all more to love, opening with the swagger of “Don’t Let Him Waste Your Time” and “Black Magic” before exploring the Sheffield singer’s softer, darker side on songs like “I Will Kill Again” — and bringing out his inner… More »
