Jarvis connects!

Ten years ago, he was expressing what so many of us felt about the obscene self-serving suffer-the-little-children antics of one Michael Jackson at the Brit Awards.
(So he was pissed. So he's embarrassed & fed up with people still going on about it. Doesn't alter the fact that for many of us it was a defining moment.)

July 2006 & le Jarv hits MySpace :-)

Here's what the man has to say:
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
Love the ampersands! He got that from me, you know....

His song sets out 'so-so', not quite poetic, not quite musically striking, then an hour later you find you're still humming it. Listen to the lyrics.
