Live Review:Jarvis Cocker

the grand old man of lit-pop is entering territory as fraught with danger as a minefield – and there are just two ways to navigate through. Relive all those past glories into his dotage, or stride incisively on, à la Nick Cave. Being a proper...

Jarvis Cocker has [url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WI6kAShlByw"]duetted with Beth Ditto[/url], wiggled his anus at Michael Jackson and dressed up as Rolf Harris on national TV – really, unless he joins Mongrel, he shouldn’t surprise us...
