Jarvis Cocker's 'Fantastic Mr. Fox' Song: I Hope You Like Banjo

October 12, 2009

Departing from his glammy, britpop safety zone, Jarvis Cocker recorded a short banjo-and-"boing"-based tune called "Petey's Song" for The Fantastic Mr. Fox, and it can now be put in your ears on Guardian. If you're at all familiar with Cocker or his longtime band, Pulp, I think you'll be surprised how much this latest effort sounds not at all like him but a lot like lo-fi British Raffi.

Actually, the more I think about it, the more I'm sure he ripped the song off of Sharon, Lois, and Bram's Elephant Show. Expect a call from a jolly, pantomiming, pachyderm attorney, Cocker.
