🎳 Wishing a very Happy Birthday to the legend that is *Jarvis Cocker*! A figurehead of the Britpop genre, iconic frontman of Pulp, but more importantly he pulled off THAT stage invasion at the 1996 Brit Awards... it's just too, too good. Have a good one, Jarv. ... See MoreSee Less
I was at the barrier 3 weeks ago at End of the Road- he was bloody awesome!
Jarv would be the perfect Rockaway act...
I once served him breakfast at his rehearsal studio. When a phone call came through for him I was too embarrassed to admit I knew who he was so went through the charade of calling out "is there a jarvis cocker here". I'm a knob.
Yes! @Jarv is... For rockaway x
Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease try and get him for Rockaway.
🎳 We've put together a 'Through the decade' look at the 1970s, and the development of the 70s alternative music scene. Wanna see how we got from Black Sabbath to Joy Division in 2 minutes?! Have a watch, and let us know who'd be on your list in the comments 👇 ... See MoreSee Less
Black Sabbath - Paranoid (1970)
The Who - Won’t Get Fooled Again (1971)
Lou Reed - Perfect Day (1972)
David Bowie - Jean Genie (1973)
Patti Smith - Hey Joe (1974)
Jonathan Richman & the Modern Lovers - Roadrunner (1975)
The Damned - New Rose (1976)
Ramones - Rockaway Beach (1977)
Kraftwerk - The Robots (1978)
Joy Division - Transmission (1979)
I’d lose Patti Smith in 1974, replace with Kraftwerk ‘Autobahn’ and have Blondie ‘Denis’ in 1978. 🎧 🎵
Surely 1979 merits a mention of the epoch-making Tubeway Army/ Gary Numan arrival?
