Y'know there's a bit in the truly magnificent "Quantum Theory", when Jarvis* sings, "it stinks, it sucks, it's anthropologically unjust" with such a degree of panache and gleeful mordacity in his phrasing that it leaves NO DOUBT he is in fact the true heir to Cohen's muse and that Nick Cave should really just have himself shot.

*The album's a real grower. But I mean, isn't Jarvis just fundamentally irresistible anyway?

Pedantry: line is not on quantum theory, but the bonus track afterwards, 'Cunts are Still Running the World'

thanks owen and thanks for not being such a pedant that you pointed out i've put "gleefully" pah! back to "edit posts" i go... the "still" is the killer part of the title, though, isn't it?
