Hells yeah! We know that Jarvis Cocker was working on some new material. It's a fact he was in Los Angeles last year recording; it's a fact he was in a studio this year with Richard Hawley across the pond. It's also a rumor that the new album is labeless and might be called Warrior On The Edge Of Time. Hey Jarvis, if you have any info, please let me know. I'm on pins and needles!
Oh wait! You do have some info? What's this? A new Myspace page from you with a brand spankin' new song (as of a year ago) called "Cunts Are Still Running The World" (AKA: "Running The World")? Sweeeeeeet.
In a message on the page, Jarvis states:
Welcome friends, to my humble little corner of the Internet. As you can see from the photo over there I have been computing to my heart's content for some time & now I want to share the experience with you. Because now I have something to share.
If all the technical bits & pieces are working properly then you should be able to hear a new song I've been working on. I wanted you to hear it now cos It's exactly 1 year since that Live-8 thing & it was the night of that event that I wrote this song. I apologise for all the swearing but sometimes that's the only thing that seems appropriate.
It's in no way a criticism of Geldof & co. but I remember thinking at the time: "Where does engaging with these politicians/businessmen really get you?" - ( 12 months on & the cunts still haven't paid up as far as I can make out) - maybe the problem is something more..... fundamental. Anyway, what do I know? I'm just a pampered rock star - but at least I think it's good to discuss this stuff. Don't you?
Let me know what you think.
Oh yeah - & thanks for visiting. I hope this is just the start of a beautiful relationship.
love, Jarvis xx
