[1978-…], Sheffield, South Yorkshire, United Kingdom |
Pulp are an English alternative rock band who formed in Sheffield in 1978.
Pulp’s best-known line-up from their heyday (1994–1996) consisted of Jarvis Cocker (vocals, guitar), Candida Doyle (keyboards), Russell Senior (guitar, violin), Mark Webber (guitar, keyboards), Steve Mackey (bass) and Nick Banks (drums). Senior quit in 1996 and has since 2010 returned for tours, while Leo Abrahams has been a touring member of the band since they reunited in 2011, contributing electric and acoustic guitar.
Throughout the 1980s, Pulp struggled to find success, but gained prominence in the UK in the mid-1990s with the release of the albums His ‘n’ Hers in 1994 and particularly Different Class in 1995, which reached the number one spot in the UK Albums Chart. Different Class spawned four top ten singles, including “Common People” and “Sorted for E’s & Wizz”, both of which reached number two in the UK Singles Chart.
Pulp’s musical style during this period consisted of disco influenced pop-rock coupled with “kitchen sink drama”-style lyrics.
Jarvis Cocker and the band became reluctant figures in the Britpop movement, and were nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 1994 for His ‘n’ Hers; they won the prize in 1996 for Different Class and were nominated again in 1998 for This Is Hardcore.
Pulp would release two further, much less successful albums, This Is Hardcore (1998) and We Love Life (2001), after which they entered an extended hiatus, having sold more than 10 million records.
Pulp reunited played live again in 2011, with dates at the Isle of Wight Festival, Reading and Leeds Festivals, Sziget Festival, Primavera Sound, the Exit festival, and the Wireless Festival. A number of additional concert dates have since been added to their schedule.
In 2013 Pulp released “After You”, a re-recording of a We Love Life demo track, as a digital download single. It was the band’s first single release since “Bad Cover Version” in 2002.
In 2014 Pulp and filmmaker Florian Habicht premiered the feature documentary Pulp: A Film about Life, Death & Supermarkets at SXSW Music and Film Festival in Austin, Texas. The film has been touring the international film festival circuit and will be released theatrically by Oscilloscope Laboratories in the USA in November 2014. It is the first film about Pulp (and Sheffield) that has been made in collaboration with the band.
