Jarvis Cocker - Mother, Brother, Lover

Jarvis Cocker – Mother, Brother, Lover


If I classified this as poetry, it’s because it is – lyrics and poetry already have an intertwining relationship, except for with artists like, say, Rihanna. This book was published by Faber & Faber, a publisher that was known for its love of poetry and was even edited, at one stage, by T. S. Eliot.

As strange as it sounds, though, Pulp‘s lyrics really do read like poetry, and if you didn’t recognise the songs then you could easily believe it. It’s strange, but I was never a massive fan of Pulp – sure, I liked the odd song, but so did everybody. I can’t help feeling that I prefer the poetry to the music.

Overall, well worth a read for any music aficionado, especially if you were in to music during the golden days of britpop. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the strange mind of Mr. Jarvis Cocker. Enjoy.
