Degree for Pulp’s Jarvis

Have your say

PULP mainman Jarvis Cocker is planning a sentimental journey back to the college that inspired the band’s greatest chart hit, Common People.

Jarvis is to receive an honorary degree from the University of the Arts in London, part of which is Central Saint Martins, where he studied fine art and film.

He will receive the honour at the Royal Festival Hall on Wednesday, July 20.

The number two hit that mentions the college was based on Jarvis’s meeting with a Greek student during his time at Saint Martins in the early 1990s.
