Black Box Recorder's John Moore writing in the NME:

Allegedly, Jarvis did it for a fag. He bumped into Luke [Haines] at a gig and asked Luke for a fag. Luke said that he could only have one if he remixed our record. Before the song was quite subtle, but Jarvis has tipped it way over the edge into gross indecency. Now it would get arrested for lewd conduct in Sheffield Bus Station - it's got a filthy old porn soundtrack on it.

National Trust: The Album - Time To Think

  • Date: May 2010
  • Format: Digital download (free)

Details (from the National Trust website):

We are famed for our care of some of the nation’s most visually stunning locations; from castles and gardens to great swathes of coast and countryside, which are often promoted as havens of tranquillity. But the release of our new album is the first time that the very sounds of these special places have been given their place in the spotlight.

Jarvis Cocker, best known as the former front-man for the band Pulp, has worked with us to produce the album, entitled National Trust: The Album, comprising of British natural sounds including birdsong, crashing waves and wind breezing through a country garden.

Eleven of our special places across England, Northern Ireland and Wales feature on the album, so we hope you'll enjoy listening to the sounds of these places - to hear them for real, come along for a visit - we're closer than you think.

Jarvis' comments (from press release):

I hope this album is a "Holiday for the Ears". It’s not really meant to be listened to intently, like a piece of music, but more as something to have on in the background to aid relaxation or contemplation. Plus, you get to visit 13 National Trust properties in the space of 30 minutes. No mean feat. I hope it has the feel of one continuous journey and conjures up an image in the mind’s eye of the places featured. I also hope it could inspire the listeners to then visit the sites for themselves.

Jarvis helped to compile the following tracks:

  1. Belton House: Walking on gravel & birds
  2. Belton House: Birdsong
  3. Brownsea Island: Waves lapping along the shore
  4. Ham House: Footsteps through the house
  5. Chartwell: Creaking staircase
  6. Upton House: The billiards room
  7. Lanhydrock: Old music box
  8. Quarry Bank Mill: Murmurs of children in school house
  9. Fountains Abbey: Birds in water garden
  10. Powis Castle: Gardening
  11. Patterson's Spade Mill: Strap press
