While everyone seemed to be debating the (ongoing) Blur-versus-Oasis debate in the ’90s, there were those of us who knew better. We knew that, in fact, Pulp were the reigning kings of Brit-pop, and dammit, we were right. Cocker’s crew were sharper and lyrically more intelligent than the other two (and the other stragglers), plus they had better tunes. In 2006, he released his debut solo album, Jarvis, and it was more of the same. Like John Cooper Clarke, Cocker has a natural ability to take everyday, run-of-the-mill English life stories — anecdotes and bleak tales — and create poetry around them. Cocker is just as sarcastic as Clarke, if a little less grouchy, and last year’s Room 29 with Chilly Gonzales is further proof that he’s still the same indie-rock Oscar Wilde.
