If you head to Pulp’s official website, you’ll find a barrage of flashing questions about the reunion, such as: “Is this too freaky?”, “Is this a dream come true?”, “Is this someone’s idea of a joke?” and “I’ll tell you what…Let’s find out, shall we?”.
If you stop by the band’s Facebook page, you can read their official reunion announcement, where they reveal that their reunion sets will include songs spanning the band’s entire career.
In 2009, Cocker also received an honorary doctorate from his alma mater, Sheffield Hallam University. Cocker and co. had their big break in 1981 (when it was called Sheffield Polytechnic), after their demo tape was given to John Peel, who invited them to record a BBC Radio 1 session.
