MUSICIANS - including Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker - are visiting Cambridge in a project to examine the relationship between lyrics and poetry.
The Cambridge University project is organised by Australian poet Professor John Kinsella with Thurston Moore from Sonic Youth kicking off the series at the end of last year.
Next week is the turn of Jarvis Cocker who will give readings of his song lyrics starting at 7pm on Wednesday at the Lady Mitchell Hall on the university’s Sidgewick site.
The event is free and open to all with no tickets required.
During late April and May the series continues with Blixa Bargeld - best known for his work with Nick Cave in the Bad Seeds and the Birthday Party - and Lee Ranaldo, the other guitarist from Sonic Youth who is an accomplished poet in his own right.
Prof Kinsella, a poet, novelist and critic, said: “I’ve always felt that poetry lives in many spaces and I’m not that interested in boundaries other than crossing them.
“Right from my childhood, musicians have always affected my thinking about poetry - music and poetry are inseparable for me - so I thought it would be a great opportunity to allow people to investigate these connections.”
Nearly 3,000 people have supported a Facebook campaign demanding safety improvements on the A47 near Dereham set up after the latest fatal crash.
