Sheffield legends Pulp will reform for a series of live shows in 2023.
The band’s catalogue remains peerless, with their stunning imperial run matching the very best of their generation. Deeply British, deeply seedy, and deeply provocative, Pulp ran against the grain, producing some era-defining work in the process.
Jarvis Cocker’s new book Good Pop Bad Pop is an affectionate look backwards, accompanied by a pop-up exhibition in Central London – complete with a reconstruction of his teenage bedroom.
Taking part in a series of Q&As, last night’s (July 25th) event brought some secrets out into the fold. Following a cryptic post on Instagram, it was revealed that Pulp would be reuniting for a string of live shows in 2023.
Jarvis Cocker revealed: “It was deliberately cryptic. It’s a line from This Is Hardcore… Next year Pulp are going to play some concerts!”
Next question on THAT Instagram post from last week. JC: “It was deliberately cryptic. It’s a line from This Is Hardcore… Next year Pulp are going to play some concerts!”— Acrylic Afternoons (@AcrylcAftrnoons) July 25, 2022
Drummer Nick Banks then confirmed the news, saying “hug your Pulp records and dream of going mental sometime in 2023.”
Hey folks, unsurprisingly it’s has all gone a bit mental on here. Gig details will be revealed as and when.— Nick Banks (@therealnickbank) July 25, 2022
