Jarvis Writing For Morrissey ?!
Permalink  
 


To while away some time during a dreary afternoon at work recently, I had a look at the music publishing website Ascap, which gives details of copyrighted music. There is a wealth of info on Jarvis, of particular interest are the song titles that we wouldn't recognise - either because they are here as working titles, or they have not been released.

The Jarv Is songs have been added recently, from memory Serafina gets a co-credit on each song, and the other band members do on a couple of them.

Some of the titles listed are amusing and "even dirtier than me" ("Clap Clinic Theme", "I Am Not Feeling Myself"), while I did a double-take on seeing the title FUCKING ON HEROIN in bold caps. An x-rated Hardcore-era outtake perhaps? No, further inspection reveals it to be a co-write with Chilly Gonzalez, so it must be Room 29 era. As for "Rats With Wings In 1971", God knows how that sounds!

Also, interesting to note that a couple of the unreleased We Love Life songs are listed as being Cocker & Hawley only; ie not the rest of Pulp. That surprised me a bit as although it was known that Hawley had been involved in the writing around that time, I didn't think there were songs Pulp had recorded which most of the members weren't credited for (Performance of a Lifetime and Grandfather's Nursery).

Anyway, Pulp-nerding aside, the big reveal in all this came up when I clicked the details for a song called "The Truth About Ruth". A co-write with one Stephen Patrick Morrissey. I thought, "Oh, I never knew that they worked together". One Google-search later, and it seems that it's actually a new song, from Morrissey's album which is out in a few days, I think. A bit surprising that Jarvis would associate with him given Morrissey's further descent up his own right-winged arse in recent times.

Anyway, worth a gander...https://www.ascap.com/repertory#ace/writer/122387198/COCKER%20JARVIS%20BRANSON

Nebula from the Pulp/JarvisFacebook group here.

 

Weird!!! Haven't heard anything of this. Great find!!!! 

I wonder if there are mistakes on there as many titles are miswritten. 

 

Also, what's the ASCAP % stuff mean on the songs? Like what % he has and the rest what the other writers get? And ascap controls % of % stuff. 

 

But the title sounds VERY Jarvis-esque.

Found it on YouTube. Nothing mentioned about Jarvis, though.

I seem to asking Hawley a question or two about Cuckoo, and he said that he was "heavily involved" in it.

F-ing on Heroin was a song Jarvis wrote with Chilly for a dodgy Russell Brand film called Get Him to the Greek... I read somewhere that that's how they rekindled their friendship. So thank you Russell Brand for Room 29! Here it is (it's not very good! At all!): youtu.be/-MhleLGI4Ek

Not sure if I want to listen to the Morrissey track. That title is criminally bad
