Jarvis Cocker "Further Complications" 2xLP
Further Complications is Jarvis’ second solo album and was produced by Steve Albini after the pair met at Pitchfork music festival. Albini’s touch is noticeable on some of the rockier numbers and has delivered some brilliant fuzz and driving beats. Jarvis himself has given a performance to make us all proud, running the vocal gamut from roaring garage rock, to sleazy funk all spiced with his trademark story telling theatrics.
This is an album built to last and certainly withstands repeat listening. You’ll slowly find the memorable wisdom of this national treasure emerging amongst his ‘profoundly shallow’ lyrics about carrier bags and Hondas running out of petrol, making it an essential listen for anyone who likes their music witty and intelligent. Newly remastered in 2020.
