Encyclopedia > Relaxed Muscle

Relaxed Muscle are a British electro band formed by Pulp's Jarvis Cocker and Richard Hawley. After Pulp left their label Island Records in 2002, Cocker devoted more time to Relaxed Muscle, despite the band initially being frivolous entertainment with Hawley. It was around this time that the band enlisted new members, the most notable of which being Jason Buckle.

In early 2003 Relaxed Muscle began playing gigs. Jarvis Cocker and Richard Hawley maintained anonymity by assuming the alter-egos 'Darren Spooner' and 'Wayne Marsden' respectively. Billing themselves as "The sound of young Doncaster", Darren claimed to have met Wayne "planting flowers" while doing community service for burglary. Their fictional criminality fitted the project well, with their songs about sex, gambling and domestic violence complementing the depraved character of Relaxed Muscle. 2003 (MMIII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Cocker’s transformation into a violent, wife-beating drunk is all the more impressive when you consider his trademark bookish, slightly effeminate image. When guesting on celebrity television quiz Shooting Stars, Bob Mortimer jokingly called Cocker "the weed in tweed" and insisted that when throwing mini Baby-Bel cheeses at a giant blow-up poster of Judy Finnigan for cash prizes, that he must do so "in the style of a girl". Nevertheless, Cocker continued to avoid detection and while on-stage as Darren Spooner took to karate-chopping balsa wood and breaking sugar-glass bottles on other band members.

However, soon Cocker and Hawley’s cover was blown while playing a gig in London, despite wearing full eye make-up and skeleton suits. Even with their identities revealed, the band continued playing gigs, capitalising on their electronic sound to play the likes of Trash club on 20th October 2003.

Relaxed Muscle seemed to fade away after their album release in 2003. Pulp remains on a hiatus. However, Cocker and Hawley[citation needed] worked on the soundtrack for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire which was released in November 2005. 2003 (MMIII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...
