For some reason taking a lookalike Jarvis on tour isn't that funny in itself but taking one from Stars In Their Eyes is hilarious. I like to think Jarvis joked about them firing him because he ripped the suit but really it was because he was running about pulling women and trying to get free stuff pretending to be the real thing.
Presumably this is him

The one time I saw Pulp was on that tour, I'd forgotten all about the lookalike

I never watched Stars In Their Eyes but he got to the Grand Final? Jesus Christ.

Made it through an entire episode without mentioning cancel culture once, well done Adam!

Yep he doesn't really look or sound anything like him, any tall skinny bloke in the same clothes could get away with it.

The most distinctive thing about Cocker's voice is that rich baritone which this bloke gets nowhere near. Certainly no Chris de Burgh (but then who is)

Also, was there a mix up with the backing dancers? I can only assume there was a Herman and the Hermits impressionist up next and the dancing ladies came on too early.

The absolute worst bit of Stars in their Eyes was the clapping after the first line of singing when everyone turns to their nan and says "ooh dunnee sound just like 'im!" Clap clap clap.

Happens for every fucker, even the ones that are dogshit. Contemptible.

Isn't that a thing though? Like in all the late period Sinatra and Elvis recordings, and lounge type singers, there'll be a 30 second intro where you can tell exactly what song is coming up, then they sing the first line, and there is a sudden round of applause. Never understood that.


Ferris

It's still annoying, but less so.

Elvis is probably worthy of applause, a man doing a bad impression of Jarvis Cocker is not. To be honest, a man doing a good impression of Jarvis Cocker is only of limited applause-value.

(That said. Who, at an Elvis concert, where they've paid to hear Elvis sing his songs, hears the first bit of a song as sung by Elvis, and applauds. What else were they expecting? Clap at the end, you utter herberts.)

I was always puzzled by this - it was hard to predict exactly when the applause would arrive, it appeared to be arbitrary and senseless. I assume it was cued by the stage managers.

Whenever the nation's nans say "ooh dunnee sound just like 'im!"

I remember thinking how unlikely it was that a load of old dears would spontaneously start cheering when the man on stage sounded just like him out of Nine Inch Nails.

I mean if anyone had done Nine Inch Nails I might have watched it.

Now I'm imagining you as that guy from resovoir dogs who says waitresses should only be tipped for exceptional service

I live in North America; I tip like a madman because that's the style.

Americans, innit. They applaud the nutty neighbour in a sitcom when he makes his first entrance.

Margeret, put it in yer mooth

Was in Canada for work for 6 weeks, took until week 5 for me to realise that you are supposed to tip even if you didn't think the service was that good.

I really enjoyed the new episode with Yola, whose work I was previously unaware of.

Good one for the music nerds – as a hoary old blues dog, I was immediately on board when she mentioned Little Feat and talked about the importance of 'pocket' and 'groove'.

Her current album is a banger, reckon she'll go down well at Glastonbury this weekend.
