Shockwaves NME Awards Show: Jarvis Cocker, Astoria Saturday Feb 17

He's got it covered

Jarvis Cocker
Phew! Jarv's been turning out covers by the likes of David Bowie and Prince lately, but tonight he excelled himself by playing TWO - Talking Heads' 'Heaven' was lovely, but he eclipsed that by closing his set with a coruscating version of the Black Sabbath metal classic 'Paranoid'.



On top of a set which consisted of highlights from his solo album, he sent the hardcore fans home happy. Ha, the 'common people' didn't need their ultimate anthem...the 'Ozztoria' was rocking anyway.

A smarter and more mature film than the first Bad Neighbours, albeit one that still loves a good dick joke

Movie

Richard Ashcroft - 'These People' Review

A satisfying return to Verve form that’s also a churning maelstrom of death, riots, revolution, terrorism and two-faced politicians

Album

Kygo - 'Cloud Nine' Review

Medium-sized guests and the vibey sounds of tropical house combine on an album that's not quite euphoric
