Britain’s Jarvis Cocker of Pulp is one of the greatest lyricists, songwriters, performers to somehow duck the American marketplace.  ‘Different Class’ is in my personal Top Ten ‘greatest albums of all time’ list.  Released in 1995, the album rose to #1 in the UK Album Charts, spawning four top 10 singles, including the immensely popular “Common People”.

‘Different Class’ is one of those timeless albums befitting any serious record collection.  It is that good.

Here, Pulp perform the exceptional “I Spy” on the Jools Holland Show in 1995 — at the peak of their popularity.

The legal ramifications of Israel’s 22-day pummelling of Gaza – resulting in the deaths of 1,400 Palestinians – continue to be felt by its leaders:

Israel’s vice Prime Minister Moshe Yaalon recently cancelled a planned trip to London over fears that he could be put on trial for alleged war crimes, his spokesman said on Monday.

British activists seek his arrest for the role he played in the Gaza military assault as well as for his role in the killing of 15 people in 2002, which included a leader of Hamas and fourteen civilians (eight of which were children).
