Jarvis Cocker – Mother, Brother, Lover (PDF download)

I bought this on Amazon in Kindle format and converted it to PDF. I removed the lyrics and copyright notes, keeping only the good stuff: author's introduction, notes on songs and acknowledgements. This is not automatically converted, it's nicely formatted for all you Pulp fans out there.

The few lines that interested me were these:

DISCO 2000

The year 2000 seemed to be a significant date in all the science-fiction books, comics and films I was exposed to as a child. By then we would be living in 'The Future'. The thought of actually being alive when it came around was mind-boggling.

'Your name is Deborah' I was born in Nether Edge hospital, Sheffield on 19 September 1963. The woman in the bed next to my mother gave birth to a daughter a few hours later. The girl was christened Deborah Farnell and we were in the same class all the way through school.

'with woodchip on the wall' Woodchip is a very cheap form of wallpaper.

'Be there two o'clock by the fountain down the road' The Goodwin fountain at the top of the Fargate pedestrian precinct in Sheffield was a popular meeting place. Unfortunately it was demolished in 1998.
