Jarvis Cocker – Angela

by MV


I don’t like to post moans on here, and prefer to stick (these days) to tracks that I actually like, but I can’t help it in this case. While it worked (within reason) for the Manics recently, and has worked for many others over the years, if there’s one person I don’t really want to hear produced by Albini, it’s Jarvis.

Pulp were awesome, and better the further they went towards being a pop band. The first Jarvis album was patchy but had its moments – this lead track from the second (Further Complications – indeed) is just embarrassing. An aging, once great, popstar who thinks he’s still sticking it to the the system but is in fact just dancing like your uncle with an equally dodgy beard. Pulp reformation please!
