I love Jarvis and met him several times.
Once I was queuing for tickets of White Stripes secret gig in Covent Garden Rough Trade shop, unexpectedly Jarvis turned up to get some vinyls.
One of my French friends told me that she met a woman who worked for Geoff Travis.
Geoff was the manager of Pulp at that time.
She was rather annoyed with Jarvis because he asked her to get rare sunglasses from the original manufacturer.
Maybe it was one of his pop star demands in late 90s.
You should listen to his radio show on BBC 6 Music.
This week he will travel back to 1989 which is also one of the most memorable years in my life.
Butley: that's a neat story actually lol! The magnifying glass. Almost seems like it'd be like a scene in a Pulp song. Very Jarvis.
How do your friends know him? If you don't mind my asking.
They are older than me and all used to hang out at a club called The Limit which was really alternative. It really was a jungle when darkness fell in Northern cities. Anyone perceived as slightly weird or eccentric used to have to walk twice as fast as everybody else to stay safe.
At the height of his fame my friend bumped into him and she said all he wanted to talk about were her driving lessons. I actually grew up two streets away from him though we went to different schools.
