Pulp ranks as one of THE top bands of the forever for me. Definitely in the Top Five list and probably in the Top Three list – and all three in the Top Three are tied in the #1 spot. Yep. I didn’t get to know about them until pretty late – right around the release of This is Hardcore, but it was Different Class that introduced me to Pulp. I never looked back as I picked up every album and release I could get my hands on so I didn’t miss any b-side, since I found many I found quite great – songs like “I’m a Professional” and “Mile End” and “Ansaphone,” among others.
I never thought I’d get the chance to see them perform live. But that changed in 2011 when Pulp played Primavera Sound in Barcelona and I was there to see them for the first time. It was… for me, it was truly amazing to finally see them play. In just a couple of days, I’ll get to see them play again at Coachella. Oh, Jarvis.
Now, I just need to catch Robbie Williams to scratch another live performance off my list…
Wait, I forgot the most important thing. As part of a short string of dates in the U.S., Pulp dropped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and the Late Night audience got a chance to see two songs from Pulp. Unfortunately the videos on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon blog were both pulled, including an amazing arrangement of “Common People” they busted out.
