How fitting that, in Easter week, a charismatic and frequently full-bearded man of the – forgive me (Father!) – ‘Common People’ should rock-up in town, staging his own resurrection. Emerging from the appropriately tomblike depths of the cavernous basement at Patterns and proving that there is, indeed, life after big-band death, this was the other ‘JC’ – Jarvis Cocker – pouring forth pearls of worldly wisdom that seemed to captivate everyone who had come to hear the man preach.
The legend that is Javis Cocker has just announced a short tour of small venues in the UK, begining with Patterns, 26th March, as part of a short tour of small venues.
He’ll be performing with a band of friends under the moniker JARV, including Serafina Steer on harp and keyboards, Emma Smith on violin, Andrew McKinney on bass, and Three Trapped Tigers‘ Adam Betts on drums.
