Jarvis Cocker - Jarvis Cocker Returns To Former School

Pulp star Jarvis Cocker has finally returned a borrowed library book after 30 years during a visit to his old school in his native Sheffield, England earlier this week (begs03Oct11).
The rocker made a surprise appearance at the City School and spoke to students about his teenage years in the area and his early days as a musician.
He said, "It was this school hall that saw the first performance of Pulp in March 1980. The tickets costing 20p promised 30 minutes of live Pulp, which was pretty good value really.
"It was only when I moved away to London years later that I realised the normal things I'd experienced in Sheffield weren't actually normal at all - they were interesting and I wanted to write about them because I was scared of forgetting where I'd come from."
Cocker also used the visit to bring back a book he discovered from his time at the school, telling the students, "I'm bringing back a book I never returned to the school library all those years ago - Nine Modern Poets."
