Jarv Is/Pulp Feature in Mojo (May'20 edition - on sale from mid-March)

Nice 6 pager. From the promo beforehand on their site, I thought they might give him the cover but I guess he's not quite high-profile rock-heritage enough for that (so Dave Grohl gets it instead...).

Anyway, some interesting quotes, the article is framed around how Jarvis has arrived at his current sound. They even got in touch with Mark Webber for some Pulp perspective quotes.

No scanner at home as work-isolation begins in earnest but here's some choice comments...

Mark on Jarvis' unique stage movements: [after he and Jarvis went to see Suicide at the Leadmill in 1988]: "Jarv just completely loved the concert. You could immediately see at the next Pulp concert how much impact Alan Vega had made. That's completely where all Jarvis' hand-movements came from".

Interesting, huh? I remember Vega appearing on Jarvis' 6 Music show a few years ago and JC being tickled by Alan ending their conversation by saying "I love you, baby". He repeated the recording of that line as the show played out, it clearly meant a lot to him beyond the humorous angle.

Jarvis on creating new music, belatedly: "That's why I gave up the radio show really. I loved doing it but I had this nagging feeling that I had to get on with the real thing, which is making music. Because that's how I've always found things out about myself."

Mark on touring This Is Hardcore: "We were bludgeoning people with noise" and on the WLL era of Pulp, he, as we all kind of assumed, "In spirit if not in body, Webber 'sort of checked out' ".

Jarvis on the Pulp reunion: "Getting those songs ready for that tour made me it think it wasn't a waste of time (the years of struggle). Maybe we had captured something that had survived through time. And that's all you can hope for with a song really. I felt good about it."

On keeping-on like a lot of his heroes, into their older years. "I'm aware that for someone who's made music for over 40 years I have a slim catalogue. What can I say? I'm slow...I'm attracted by those artists that give you some hope in life (Gainsbourg, Walker, Cohen)..there's insights you only get when you get older, I think."

And Serafina: "He's kind of a national treasure and we're just part of this chapter". 

Ther'e also a nice new group photo and a fancy-effect one of just Jarvis plus a playlist type rundown of some of Jarvis' songs through his career. Under the description of My Legendary Girlfriend it says "Mark Webber talks of an unrecorded Pulp era of Ost European disco" (hmm - are there more Seppy-side two things that never came out?).

I guess this pandemic also f**ks up the press for the album because usually press is done months in advance and then rolled out.
