You know how it is.. both from working class backgrounds.. both influenced (I'd imagine) by similar things.. sort of similar ages (maybe).. Both write funny and incisive lyrics.. Both have been intrigued by their sexuality and their juvenile fumblings and frustrations.. Both had (have) good bands... Both wear (wore) geeky national health glasses.. both would be considerable, not unattractive, but individually handsome in a strange way..
..and there the similarity ends because..
Jarvis seems to respect his 'fans'.. keeping them up to date with what's going on.. He has remained true to his artistic sense.. Has ignored the lure(??) of California and stayed in the country.. and has maintained a creditable output skirting on the arty side sometimes.. but never dull or disintersting and managing to maintain an image of cult without the distance!!
Well done Jarvis.. take note MORRISSEY..
