Jarvis Cocker’s Trip

Tripcocker I’ve had Jarvis Cocker down as a man of excellent musical taste ever since he walked into Sheffield’s (or arguably the UK’s) best kept secret – The Pow Wow Club – as a paying punter and danced the night away.

So now that he’s turned his hand to compiling albums, you have to take a look.

The 35-track album, which is entitled The Trip by Jarvis Cocker/Steve Mackey, is as you might expect, heavily leaning towards the quirkier side of pop, featuring vintage gems from the likes of Lee Hazlewood, The Beach Boys, Arlo Guthrie, Jonathan Richman and Screaming Lord Sutch, through to slightly more contemporary sounds from Add N To (X), The Fall, the Human League and Electronicat.

Whether such a mix of sounds can hold together remains to be seen – but it’ll definintely be worth a listen. For the full tracklisting, click the link to continue reading.

The album is available on both LP and double CD from Monday 13th March.
