Jarvis Cocker Needs an Opening Band

The former lead singer of Pulp and now-solo artist Jarvis Cocker has announced on his MySpace page that he's opening a casting call for support acts on his upcoming mini-tour.
Cocker wrote, "Being upside-down can make all the blood rush to your head in an unpleasant way so I'll keep this quite short: we are playing in North America soon & need support bands for New York (2 shows), San Francisco, Seattle & Vancouver - do you think you could help? Same idea as the Europe shows - you recommend LOCAL bands that would be good for the job (preferably with a link to somewhere I can hear their music) & I'll do the rest. It worked a treat before - let's unleash the magic again!"
Our suggestion is that if you really want the gig, why not change your band name to something like More Pulp, or perhaps the Jarvis Cockier? We think it'll grab the singer's attention.
In other news, Cocker's solo debut, simply titled Jarvis, will finally get its North American release on April 3rd on the Rough Trade label.
These are his tour dates:
04-22 New York, NY - Webster Hall
04-23 New York, NY - Webster Hall
04-27 Indio, CA - Empire Polo Field (Coachella)
04-28 San Francisco, CA - Fillmore
