New Jarvis Cocker – “Running The World”

Jarvis Cocker’s joined MySpace and he’s got “something to share” with us common people:

If all the technical bits & pieces are working properly then you should be able to hear a new song I’ve been working on. I wanted you to hear it now cos It’s exactly 1 year since that Live-8 thing & it was the night of that event that I wrote this song. I apologise for all the swearing but sometimes that’s the only thing that seems appropriate.

It’s in no way a criticism of Geldof & co. but I remember thinking at the time: “Where does engaging with these politicians/businessmen really get you?” – ( 12 months on & the cunts still haven’t paid up as far as I can make out) – maybe the problem is something more ….. fundamental. Anyway, what do I know? I’m just a pampered rock star – but at least I think it’s good to discuss this stuff. Don’t you?
Let me know what you think.

Oh yeah – & thanks for visiting. I hope this is just the start of a beautiful relationship.

love, Jarvis xx
