Jarvis Cocker Champions Record Shops on Channel 4 News


I apologise. I have little doubt that you regard Jarvis Cocker as highly as I do ~ as pop icon, spokesman and all round good egg. Yet I do realise that he has been rather omnipresent in my recent Pop Junkie posts. I promise this will be the last for a while, at least until the end of the week!

I did think though that you would thank me for bringing this to your attention should you have had something better to do with your Saturday than watch Channel 4 news. Interviewed by Krishnan Guru-Murthy, Jarvis talks eloquently and entertainingly of the joys of being in the fairy grottoes of vinyl from within Sheffield’s last independent record shop as part of International Record Store Day, managing to deflect such inane questions as “do you remember what the first records you bought were?” and “are you a big fan of vinyl?”
