Perennial favorites Pulp to end the weekend. Recorded in concert at Leeds University in 2000, right at the time they were riding the crest of a huge popularity wave, after many years of struggling.
Characterized as an eclectic mix of Art-Rock, Post-Punk, Britpop, Indie and Alternative, Pulp have weathered numerous personnel changes, an extended hiatus and a reunion which has seen their popularity reach new heights, as has been evidenced by a number of Festival appearances since getting back together in 2011.
Always a band with an edge, showcased nicely by the darkly ironic lyrics of Jarvis Cocker, Pulp have managed to maintain a large audience and critical popularity.
This is one to play loud – and you can probably sing along to. It fades in on the first song, but it’s all there. I’m sure Jarvis would approve.
