Pulp: A Film About Life, Death And Supermarkets

For a band who mean as much to as many people as Pulp do, putting together a documentary that captures their character with all its charm and idiosyncrasies was never going to be easy. To solve this conundrum, Jarvis Cocker and German-born, New...

Live Review: Exit Festival

Live Review: Exit Festival

Maybe it’s the history that reverberates around Serbia’s Petrovaradin Fortress, but time does funny things when you’re at Exit . Even the clock tower overlooking the Danube has the size of its minute and hour hands reversed (originally so...

Pulp : We Love Life

Pulp : We Love Life

You have to wonder if Jarvis Cocker wakes up in the morning and wishes that Britpop had never happened. It might have given his band the success they'd spent 15 years chasing, but the subsequent comedown has been long and agonising - and it...
