Presents, in the ultimate Deluxe Edition format, Jarvis Cocker's "Mother, Brother, Lover". "Widely regarded as one of the most original and memorable lyricists and performers of the last three decades. Here, for the first time, is a selection of sixty-six lyrics, presented with commentary and an Introduction by the man himself. Includes such classic Jarvis lyrics as 'Common People', 'Disco 2000', 'Babies', 'This Is Hardcore', and 'Do You Remember The First Time? '. Reveals a sensibility that is unmistakably Jarvis: A sometimes visceral, sometimes everyday take on love, relationships, and the things we do to each other when the lights get low. Takes the reader on a thirty-year tour into the life, art, and preoccupations of one of the great British artists of the late twentieth century. Shocking, sharp, clever, and funny. A beautiful collection" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Jarvis Cocker collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Slipcased Edition, indicated/numbered as such on the Front Limitation Page ("Number 74"), and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen by Jarvis Cocker. He also laid into each copy of the Limited Edition a unique bookmark. This one shows four black-and-white "selfies" of him, also very prominently and beautifully signed and inscribed on the back: "Mark my words, Jarvis Cocker". He also date-stamped it ("04 OCT 2011") and numbered it in pencil ("74"). It really doesn't get better than this. This title is a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is one of only two copies of the Limited Slipcased Edition still available online, is still in the publisher's original paper wrappers, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. One of the greatest British lyricists of our time. A flawless collectible copy. . ISBN 0571282016. $400.00
