Last chance to catch Jarvis

I’ve just realised that Jarvis Cocker’s Musical Map of Sheffield is about to drop off the BBC’s iPlayer.

It’s as much a musical map of Jarvis as of his home town.  Shot through with his laconic humanity and with some nice impressionistic audio – as well as some blindingly obvious Steel City tunes, of course.

Engels, The Sweeney, preparing for interplanetary travel, tenacious bits of tree and a cut-price Apocalyse Now.  Well worth a listen.

You can hear the programme here, until 10.30 this evening, 8 July (the link may be broken after that time, sorry).

Oh, don’t be frightened by the organ music at the beginning.  Jarvis’s programme starts about four minutes in.
