JARVIS – Don’t Let Him Waste Your Time (CD & 2x 7″ Singles)

Rough Trade RTRADSCD385 / RTRADS385 / RTRADSX385: 8th January 2006
1. Don’t Let Him Waste Your Time
“Cos the years fly by in an instant, and you wonder what he’s waiting for, then some skinny bitch walks by in some hot-pants and he’s a-running out the door”
2. The Mouse, The Bird & The Sausage
“He who is too well off is always longing for something new”
3. Big Stuff
“Well the things that used to bounce off you, now hurt you deep inside, and you used to think you had the world by the balls, now it’s taking you for a ride”
4. One Man Show
“All this new-found freedom is so outta-sight, got a hot date with a baked potato tonight”

‘Don’t Let Him Waste Your Time’ is one of two tracks on Jarvis’ spectacular new album that he originally wrote for Nancy Sinatra. This solo re-recording is superior in every way, the Guitars are more muscular, the Drums are like cannons and of course… it’s got Jarvis singing the lead vocal!

Sadly, this Monday marked the final nail in the coffin of the traditional single with the inclusion of any old download in the charts. As if to prove what a wonderful medium it was, Jarvis has included three outstanding B-sides complete with printed lyrics. ‘The Mouse, The Bird & The Sausage’ is a spoken word track with Jarvis reading one of the Grimm’s fairy tales in his distinctive deep tones (Visit his MySpace page to hear more stories). ‘Big Stuff’ is about age catching up with you, set to a Nick Cave like production with extra Pop fizz. ‘One Man Show’ has a funny and thinly veiled lyric about playing a solo performance on the, ahem… devil’s trombone.
