The Man Who Made Geek Dance Sexy

Jarvis Cocker at Webster Hall New York, April 23rd


He's not Jesus, but he has the same initials. He's not Mick Jagger, but he has the same sex appeal: Jarvis Cocker, the third power in the Brit pop triumvirate of the late Nineties visited us hipsters in downtown New York for the first time in nearly a decade for a delightful night at Webster Hall. The man is full of himself, songs like "One Man Show" and "From A to I" suggest, but he still has it - the nerdy Michael Jackson moves, the long limbs and lascivious stride, the voice, the britness. He's commanding the audience, backed by a great band. Highlights included his new single "Don't let him waste your time" and "Cunts are still running the world". Other times, some of the songs were almost cheesy, but I guess that's okay, John Lennon was allowed to do that, too. We recommend Jarvis highly for the British Preservation Society. Give the man a medal, Liz, he's a walking advertisment for England.
