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 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. - Source

Jarvis Cocker Describes 'Loud' Sophomore Effort

He exclaims: *What I've tried to do with the new stuff, rather than me just sit there and wait for inspiration to come at some point, which takes ages, instead I've written stuff together with other people. And it's a bit louder. That really made me think. I'd never really had that before. Pulp could be loud, but we didn't really rock. Well, maybe occasionally.*  - Source

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 terms, "chabon" and "mina." See, the chabon is really drunk and can't remember what happened, if anything. "Or, if it did happen, it certainly didn't last very long," quoth the Cocker. Then comes the anthem. (Wow, we just had a lot of unintended innuendo there.) - Source
