Jarvis Cocker Knows Exactly What He’s Doing


For anyone who doesn’t have any idea who these people are – and didn’t see their performance at the NME Awards – hang your eyes upon the new Sonny and Cher of indie-pop.

Jarvis Cocker and some fat chick with a tramp stamp.

Well, Beth Ditto… So, some fat chick with a tramp stamp and a really loud voice.

The performance is actually pretty good, and Jarvis Cocker’s the man, so I’ll forgive him for allowing this picture to exist – though he kind of already kind of redeems himself by attempting to will himself into invisibility with his psychic powers… or whatever the hell he’s doing in this photograph.

If I didn’t know it was Beth Ditto I’d think it was pretty cool… I mean, what could be better than Jarvis making things explode with his mind while posing like a GI Joe next to a swollen tranny goldfish with a tramp stamp..?

Anyone want to make an animated series?

Their live version of Heaven 17’s dubiously classic track ‘Temptation’ is available exclusively on digital download from iTunes, with the proceeds going to some weird English charity; something about sheltering kids and puppies and stroking.

    The song was in aid of Shelter, a well established charity in aid of the homeless. of course Jarvis knows what he is doing, he has a brain the size of a planet.Fact.
