"We have invented a new way of playing a concert,” he says of the subterranean knees-up
To celebrate the release as JARV IS... of his Beyond The Pale album, Mr. Cocker and his latest group of musical cohorts are treating fans to a free live performance of the seven-tracker at 8pm on Tuesday July 21. It'll then be available on his YouTube channel for a further 24 hours before disappearing (temporarily one imagines) off into the ether.
Filmed at Peak Cavern in Derbyshire, it sounds like it's going to be a very special night...
“Beyond The Pale was written and partially recorded in front of a live audience, so it feels extra-strange not to be able to take it on the road at the moment,” Jarvis Cocker reflects. “Fortunately, our friends Iain & Jane suggested a way round the problem: set up our equipment in a cave and they would film the results. We have invented a new way of playing a concert.”
