Speaking to the Daily Record, O'Donoghue fumed, "I am not a big Pulp fan. Jarvis Cocky. I'm not into him at all. I don't like his style. I don't like his music. I won't be steering clear of him, but he should be steering clear of me."
He continued, "I have watched his career. I'd like to think Pulp are coming out with a new album or that he wants to really do a job in the music industry, but I am sure they will release a single, do a tour, make their money and go home."
Quite where these sour grapes have come from is anybody's guess. Since Pulp's retreat from public life in 2001, Cocker has gone on to launch a solo career as well as establishing himself as a well respected broadcaster on BBC 6 Music. Not that any of this impresses O'Donoghue who added, "The audacity of Jarvis Cocker to think he is important enough for people to give a damn what he thinks."
Brave words, Mr O'Donoghue. And when did the Script carry off a Glastonbury performance like the one below?
