Jarvis Cocker to publish Brexit book

The next contributor to the Rough Trade Editions series of books will be Jarvis Cocker, which is nice. Although it will force you to think about Brexit a bit more, which is less so. Still, I guess it’s good for all of us who think exiting the EU is a really bad idea to do a bit more agreeing with each other and hoping it’ll all go away.

Titled ‘Good Pop, Bad Pop’, the book features the text of two speeches that Cocker gave last year. “They both concern Br**it”, warns the blurb, “but please don’t let that put you off”.

You’ll be able to get your hands on the book on 27 Nov, by which time there might be some clarity on what Brexit even is, possibly making the book a bit out of date. Though I think it’s probably more likely that the whole thing will still be a chaotic mess. Which will at least make the book more relevant. More info here.
