I am some bad cover version of you


Welcome friends, to my humble little corner of the Internet. As you can see from the photo over there I have been computing to my heart's content for some time & now I want to share the experience with you. Because now I have something to share.
If all the technical bits & pieces are working properly then you should be able to hear a new song I've been working on. I wanted you to hear it now cos It's exactly 1 year since that Live-8 thing & it was the night of that event that I wrote this song. I apologise for all the swearing but sometimes that's the only thing that seems appropriate.
It's in no way a criticism of Geldof & co. but I remember thinking at the time: "Where does engaging with these politicians/businessmen really get you?" - ( 12 months on & the cunts still haven't paid up as far as I can make out) - maybe the problem is something more ..... fundamental. Anyway, what do I know? I'm just a pampered rock star - but at least I think it's good to discuss this stuff. Don't you?
Let me know what you think.
Oh yeah - & thanks for visiting. I hope this is just the start of a beautiful relationship.
love, Jarvis xx

Dear Jarvis, I suspect that you recieve fan mails every second. Mine is not different. You are my inspiration, your melancholic sweet low voice is the perfect mate of mine.
Everytime I need a hug, your music is around. Probably this sounds creepy or ordinary for you. But is something I always think: I don't want to sing like Aretha or Janis... I want to be like Jarvis Cocker, with my big eye glasses and my introspection and all these mixed up sentiments that sometimes I want to share.
love, Vanessa xxx
