Not sure if it's been mentioned here yet, but Jarvis does indeed have an Instagram account. Thought I'd point it out now as he's posted quite an old Pulp photo today:
Tell mester to f*ck off!
Thanks for posting that link. There's some interesting stuff on there.
I liked seeing the 'They Live' images (the creepy skull thing). After waiting to see it again for years, it was on TV recently, and I recommend it: it's an enjoyable mix of social allegory and dumb gun rampage, with a very long fisticuffs sequence. If I were ever the kind of person to go to a fancy dress party, or a comicon, I would go as Roddy Piper as Nada... though I'd have to wear a lot of padding.
Albert Cocker has an Instagram, I think, I found it while hunting for interesting Pulp pics when making my own CD covers. It still seems jarring to me that family photos are willingly posted online. I understand the Jarvis one, lots of it relates to his work, and he is a public figure, but I've never had a desire to share my life with strangers.
Sorry I didn't get round to commenting before, thanks for this, it's amazing. This picture is hilarious.
We'll use the one thing we've got more of, that's our minds.
That street art is absolutely fab, I was happy to tag the artist & he seemed quite chuffed!! He's done another Jarvis piece elsewhere in Sheffield which you can see here:
That piece seems to be outside of a chicken express on Abbeydale Road (if anyone's curious about the specifics).
I remember they did a few people on bikes for the Tour de France when it was in Yorkshire a few years ago - there'a was a Jarvis one, don't know if it's still there.

Yeah, brill. And I am relieved that Jarvis can still do a scissor jump.

It's the very road I live on but sadly missed the event itself.
Where Pigeons go to die.
There's another new one for the historians:
Some are born to greatness, some are born to die.
Hi maidmarian did you try the link? I am not on instagram either and I could look at all the pictures. I tried just now and it didn't seem to want to let me download it. I could take a screenshot otherwise but that will be rubbish quality.

This is the highest quality I have it
Here's the image for you !
A tip: if you ever want to download a pic from Instagram without taking a screenshot, you can follow these steps (from a computer):
1) open the post in its own tab2) right click & choose 'View Page Source'3) scroll about halfway down the source page til you see 'meta property="og image" content=' & whichever .jpg file follows will be the one you want to grab4) open the .jpg file in its own tab & then you can right click & save !! :)
I like these ancient Pulp photos that have both been found whilst "looking for something else"...
All this archive digging, makes me wonder if Faber have persuaded their editor at large to write an autobiography?
The Morrissey one must have made a bunch of money for Penguin. And I enjoyed the first half quite a lot.
