Bassist to fill in for Jarvis Cocker...

Radiohead bass player Colin Greenwood is set to fill in for Jarvis Cocker on 6Music.

One of the best ways to unwind following the strains of a typical Saturday night, Jarvis Cocker's Sunday service is a perennial Clash favourite. Matching the singer's relaxing tones with an eclectic (and often quite unexpected) music choice, it's one of the crown jewels in 6Music's collection.

Set to take a well deserved break from the airwaves, Jarvis Cocker has lined up some suitable replacements. Radiohead bass player Colin Greenwood is set to look after the Pulp singer's slot, hosting the Sunday Service for three weeks - beginning this Sunday (July 7th).

As if that wasn't enough, the bass player will be joined by brother (and fellow Radiohead member) Jonny Greenwood while comedian Adam Buxton is set to fulfil the role of "compere and tour manager."

Sounds like it could be well worth tuning in for. Find the full press release below:

"Colin Greenwood’s Sunday Service
Sunday 7 July, 16:00 – 18:00

Colin Greenwood of Radiohead curates the first of three shows whilst he sits in for Jarvis Cocker on the Sunday Service. He was the founding member of Radiohead along with singer Thom Yorke. The band has released eight albums to date and have sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. Colin invites his brother Jonny Greenwood along for this first show as they re-enact their post-gig tour bus throwdown. As they travel between concerts, each one takes it in turn to play an influential and much loved tune in the hope that it’s universally appreciated. And 6 Music regular Adam Buxton is along for the ride in the role of compere and tour manager."
