Jarvis Cocker to Replace John Peel?
Pitchfork says that Jarvis Cocker may be the only person who could take up John Peel's BBC mantle. For now, he's curating this year's Meltdown Festival and promoting his first, post-Pulp solo album. (Scott Walker produced the Pulp swan song.) Living in France and ferrying back and forth to Blighty, he's been leading panel discussions on the importance of music, iPods, the underground scenes, etc. It's good to have him back for a whole CD.
