Jarvis will be discussing his unique life, Pulp, 20th century pop culture, the good times and the mistakes he’d rather forget.

Good Pop, Bad Pop asks whether the things we keep hidden say more about us than those we put on display. When Jarvis Cocker starts clearing out his loft, he finds a jumble of objects that catalogue his story and ask him some awkward questions.

In this exclusive UK tour, Jarvis takes us through the accumulated debris of a lifetime for the first time, revealing his creative process – writing and musicianship, performance and ambition, style and stagecraft.

Presented by Penguin Live
