AM: When I was eight as well. I never got lessons. I took influence from Chet Baker, Ian Dury, and Joe Strummer. I don’t hear my voice and think, “Yeah, that’s a banging voice!” It’s more about putting the right emotions into the right words and the lyrics than anything else to me.
哇，Chet Baker, Ian Dury, and Joe Strummer唔怪知得你玩得出一首《Out Getting Ribs》好聽又極度低沉傷感具情感爆發力的作品。最新單曲《The Noose of Jah Cit》一樣好聽到痺，加入中板鼓聲及電子trippy tone，由傷感變得迷幻愜意一點，噢，難怪你可以咁形容主流音樂
“I didn’t really care about anyone else liking it because the mainstream music that everyone likes is shit anyway,”
I’ve never been a real big fan of capitalism. I’ve studied quite a lot of Marxist theory. I’m still quite confused about it, to be honest, but I just like learning about all of it. Knowledge is power.
可謂是威爾斯的鎮國之寶的Manic Street Preachers宣佈會休息一會，以翻唱The The經典《This is The Day》作告別，Well, 坦白說，本人十分喜歡Manics的，但這個cover又確實真係十分行加真係有d 強姦感覺。不過咁，你地暫別，我都希望你地會返來同有個更有心的come back, cheerio! 但播The The 版本的《This is The Day》，賣飛佛！
英國一向閃閃發光的queer Singer-songwriter Patrick Wolf從來不盡得我心，因為總覺得太pop 太直接，不是我杯茶。怎知近半年在電台上不斷聽到他的新單曲，反而終於被打動。先是《The City》的”Don’t let the city destroy our love”，起初還覺得其實是與保育及與強權抗衡有關；到《House》的”I love my house I love my house, gives me the greatest peace I’ve ever known.”，以物當人予以情，實在可愛。原來這位廿七歲男孩將會與其男朋友結婚，幸福開心的佢就將【Lupercalia】的專輯變為歌頌戀愛的專輯。聽罷，我就還是喜歡佢的醒神singles 多於side tracks 了。
in November 1985, Cocker fell out of a window while trying to impress a girl with a Spider-Man impression and ended up in hospital, temporarily requiring the use of an wheelchair in which he appeared during concerts.
This led to him leaving for London to study film at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, effectively folding the band.
It was at this time that Cocker gained significant media exposure due to an notorious prank at the 1996 BRIT Awards, where he invaded the stage in protest during pop singer Michael Jackson’s performance of “Earth Song” and “wiggled his backside” at the audience. After complaints by Jackson and his entourage, Cocker spent the night in Kensington Police Station charged with actual bodily harm and assaulting the child performers. However, with British comedian and former solicitor Bob Mortimer acting as legal representation, he was released without charge. This incident propelled Cocker into great controversy in the UK and elsewhere, and Pulp’s record sales soared as a result. The event also coincided with the beginning of their first arena tour and the Daily Mirror, who had attacked the band months earlier, set up a “Justice for Jarvis” campaign backing his actions and carried out a stunt at Pulp’s Sheffield Arena gig on 29 February, handing out free T-shirts. The NME described Cocker’s actions as a “great publicity stunt” which was “creative, subversive and very, very funny”, while Melody Maker described Cocker as, “arguably the Fifth Most Famous Man In Britain” and suggested he should be knighted.
In March 1996, a compilation of Pulp’s early recordings on Fire Records entitled Countdown 1992–1983 was released on the Nectar Masters label. It received largely negative reviews, but due to the band’s popularity at the time it reached the top 10 of the UK charts. Cocker, who’s permission was not sought before release, urged fans not to purchase the album, comparing it to “a garish old family photograph album”.
