interview, Shop Ticket Snatchers

Jarvis Cocker
has said that there was a time when fame reminded him of
pornography.

Speaking in a new interview, the Pulp frontman revisited the
band’s rise to fame following the release of their hit single
‘Common People’ in 1995.

“It was a very strange time for me because I’d achieved my
lifetime’s ambition and then found that it didn’t satisfy
me,” he told
The Sunday Times
.

He continued, saying that fame “reminded me of pornography. Of
how pornography takes an amazing thing – love between two people
expressed physically – and kind of grosses it out.”

He added that he remembers thinking: “What am I gonna believe
in now?”

Elsewhere in the interview, Cocker revealed that he learnt about
sex from “eavesdropping on my mum and her friends’
conversations after school.”

“I remember something that my mum or one of her friends said
once, where they were talking about this guy, and they said, ‘Oh,
he’s too nice’,” he explained. “She decided she was gonna
stop seeing him because he was just too nice.”

“As a kid I was thinking, ‘Well, you’re always told to be
nice.’ So, sex and sexual attraction, it’s not a cut-and-dried
thing, is it? I mean, that thing of whether you get a spark between
two people is really elusive, why one person will turn you on and
another person won’t.”

Cocker‘s new project JARV IS… were
due to release their debut album ‘Beyond The Pale’ on May 1 via
Rough Trade
, however, due to the coronavirus it will now arrive
on July 17, ahead of their rescheduled UK tour dates taking place
in November.

Last week,
Cocker has revealed how he was “saved” by David Bowie following
his notorious appearance during Michael Jackson‘s 1996 Brit
Awards performance.

During the ceremony, Cocker appeared on stage uninvited during
Jackson’s performance to protest how Jackson “sees himself as
some kind of Christ-like figure with the power of healing.”

Cocker was subsequently arrested and held by the police on
suspicion of assault, before being later released without
charge.

Meanwhile,
Jarvis Cocker has suggested that Pulp may never return again,
having said that their previous reunion tour “brought that
chapter to a satisfying end.”
