Jarv Is – Live At Glastonbury 2022 – Recorded and broadcast by BBC 6 Music – June 26, 2022 – BBC 6 Music.
Sticking around Glastonbury this weekend for a performance by Jarv Is, recorded and broadcast live by BBC 6 Music of June 26th.
In case you forgot, Jarvis Branson Cocker is a musician, actor and radio presenter. As the founder, frontman, lyricist, and only consistent member of the band Pulp, he became a figurehead of the Britpop genre of the mid-1990s. Following Pulp’s hiatus, Cocker has pursued a solo career, and for seven years he presented the BBC Radio 6 Music show Jarvis Cocker’s Sunday Service.
Cocker gained international attention when he invaded the stage at the 1996 Brit Awards during a performance by Michael Jackson.
In late 2017, Cocker formed a new band under the name “Jarv Is”. Along with Cocker himself, the band comprises Serafina Steer (harp/keys), Emma Smith (violin), Andrew McKinney (bass), Jason Buckle and Adam Betts (drums). Primarily a live outfit, the band debuted a range of new material in intimate concerts at festivals in 2017, 2018 and 2019. On 15 May 2019, the band released their debut single “Must I Evolve?”. The band played at Leith Theatre on 22 August 2019 as part of the Edinburgh International Festival’s contemporary music programme. On 2 March 2020, Jarvis announced the band’s debut album Beyond the Pale on Steve Lamacq’s BBC Radio 6 show and released the single “House Music All Night Long”. The album was scheduled to be released on 1 May 2020 on Rough Trade Records but this was later changed to 4 September 2020 and eventually the release date was brought forward to 17 July.
If you missed it entirely, or only caught bits of it, here’s the whole concert, exactly as you would have heard it if you were listening to BBC 6 Music that day.
All you have to do is crank it up.
