Jul 18 2008Jarvis Cocker Scoring 'Fantastic Mr. Fox'? Fine, I'll Buy Another Wes Anderson Soundtrack


Whenever I curl up with a warm, soothing cup of milk & rum and begin to make my way through a well-worn copy of Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr. Fox (every Saturday), I will invariably put on an equally well-worn record of Pulp's Different Class. There's just something about working class, disco-inspired Britpop that meshes perfectly with the comic exploits of an anthropomorphic fox stealing food from some mean old farmers.

None of that is true, but Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker will reportedly be providing some of the score to Wes Anderson's stop-motion adaptation of the book, so we'll find out if they really do mesh as well as I dream--like milk and rum.

thank god Tim Burton isn't directing that one. He really fucked up Willy Wonka pretty badly.

I LOVE Roald Dahl's books.

Whoa, whoa, WHOA. what the fuck happened to mark mothersbaugh?

That's possibly the most forced and pretentious photo I've ever seen.

Jarvis wrote co-wrote a few songs along with members of Radiohead for the 4th Harry Potter Film, so I'm optimistic about this. He's playing at Pitchfork music festival this weekend. I'm excited.
