Jarvis Cocker is well renowned for his wry observations on life, and during the introduction to Laughing Boy at this 2001 concert, he rambled at length about the times when people “stay at your house, they say ‘I’ll just be here for a few days’, and then two months later they’re still on t’settee”. After playing the song, and realising that this wasn’t what the lyrics were about at all, he quickly apologised and began to discuss the form of “mental Viagra” that had recently been announced, which would reportedly stop memory loss. This prompted the following thought...
The crowd cheer loudly at the mention of Doctor Who, though whether this was due to their own fond memories or the prospect of their erasure, it’s hard to tell. The whole concert was captured by UK bootleg company R&A Music, and sold online - and therefore manufactured only on request - at http://ramusic.50megs.com/ (now no longer operating), in frankly rather naff packaging. R&A bootlegs regularly turn up at record fairs and specialist shops, so keep an eye out for this one if you’re a hopeless completist.
