Jarvis Is A True Showman At Latitude

The former Pulp frontman plays his first major UK festival

Trending Now

Jarvis Cocker has just played his first major UK festival as a solo artist, appearing on the Obelisk main stage tonight (July 15).

Entertaining the crowd with witty digressions throughout his hour-long set, the full charm offensive of Jarvis was in full effect.

Jarvis lapsed into almost improv comedy saying things like: “This is the first time we’ve played in daylight. You can tell our age. My face… hanging… hanging… hanging… like dust in a funeral parlour.”


Only having made one solo record, Jarvis performed pretty much everything from it. Plus he gave us a second chance to hear his cover of Survivor’s ‘Eye Of The Tiger’ which he first performed at his own curated Meltdown Festival last month.

Jarvis played:

‘Fat Children’


‘Don’t Let Him Waste Your Time’

‘Stormy Weather’

‘One Man Show’

‘I Will Kill Again’


‘Sooner Or Later The Big Stuff Comes Around’

‘Black Magic’

‘Running The World’

‘Eye Of The Tiger’
