Former Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker has announced a memoir called Good Pop, Bad Pop, arriving on May 26. Billed as "an inventory," the book seems to focus on telling the stories of particular items and places in Cocker's life. 

The book's description reads:

From a Gold Star polycotton shirt to a pack of Wrigley's Extra, from his teenage attempts to write songs to the Sexy Laughs Fantastic Dirty Joke Book, this is the hard evidence of Jarvis's unique life, Pulp, 20th century pop culture, the good times and the mistakes he'd rather forget. And this accumulated debris of a lifetime reveals his creative process – writing and musicianship, performance and ambition, style and stagecraft.

Most recently, Cocker released an album of '60s and '70s French pop songs under the name Tip-Top, for Wes Anderson's The French Dispatch
