Further Complications: Jarvis Cocker

This is Jarvis’s second solo album since his departure from the legendary band Pulp and its eclectic blend of pop, loud ‘n’ loose rock and disco makes it a very compelling listen! Pulp fan’s will be appeased by songs such as Leftovers, I Never Said I Was Deep and Slush and pleasantly surprised by his more experimental numbers. In Caucasian Blues, we find Jarvis borrowing from Johnny Rotten’s brash lyrical delivery in Anarchy in the UK, while the stuttering, echoey vocals in Pilchard are strongly reminiscent of those in Joy Division’s She’s Lost Control. A highly entertaining and energetic album that is well worth a listen!
