Jarvis Branson Cocker (born 19 September 1963) is an English musician, best known for fronting the band Pulp. It was through his work with the band that Cocker became one of the key players in the Britpop movement of the mid-1990s.
Cocker founded "Arabacus Pulp" (named after a tradeable commodity seen by Cocker in an economics class) at the age of 15 while he was still at The City School. After numerous line-up changes, and a shortening of the name to just "Pulp", they eventually found fame in the 1990s with the success of the albums His 'n' Hers (1994) and Different Class (1995).
Jarvis Cocker plans to release a new studio album in 2008, and has revealed the names of two tracks set for the record. Speaking to NME.com, he said that he had written "Girls Like It Too" and "The Usual" and hoped to have enough material to record the follow-up to his solo debut soon.
