Jarvis Cocker Is A Busy Dude

Idle hands are the devils workshop so I have heard, and Jarvis Cocker must be a believer of that saying. Not only is he working on that new album and posting updates on Myspace, but he is also working with some notable celebs on the curation of a Rough Trade compilation.

The two disc set is a celebration of Rough Trade Shops 30th anniversary and includes creative selections from Bjork, Thurston Moore, Bobby Gillespie and Jarvis. The albums will also have liner notes with bios, unseen photos and notes from the curators.
