Pulp Reuniting

BBC - Newsbeat - Pulp confirm 2011 reunion gigs

Quote:
The six original members, led by singer Jarvis Cocker, will headline London's Hyde Park on 3 July as part of the Wireless festival and will also top the bill at Spain's Primavera Sound event on 27 May.

The gigs will be their first performances in 15 years having last been on stage together in August 1996.

The band said they would "play songs from all periods of their career".
They added: "Yes, that means they'll be playing your favourites."

Pulp have announced they are to play the Isle of Wight Festival next summer.
Jarvis Cocker has regrouped with the iconic Britpop band of the 1990s to play a selection of big events in the coming year.
After announcing their attendance at the Wireless Festival in Hyde Park, London, they will also take to the stage on the Saturday at the Isle of Wight Festival.
Hope this turns into more. One of those bands I got into far too late.

if i didn't generally hate reunions in every form of tours/albums/one-shot gigs, i'd think this was cool.


for multiple original members, though. nothing more lame than 1 person from a band getting 3-4 random people to do a reunion with them.

My good friend is a long-time Pulp freak and this is like the greatest news of all time for her. She'd never seen the original lineup, and when I noted that I had (opening up for Blur back in 1994) I received a dirty look.

I remember the band handed out these "pulp" paperback books at the show and I still had mine, quite the nice collector's item:

Oh that is awesome.

I'm excited for the potential of more shows, but for now I guess I'm mostly just happy to see them back together.

See Alex Chilton + The Posies = Big Star in the mid-90s.

Pulp is awesome. Would so see them if Cocker didn't hate America.

Come on, it wasn't just Chilton; Jody Stephens was playing with them as well. And there were only 3 people in the band to begin with so it's not like it was only half the band or something.

Without Bell (not their fault, of course, although I don't think The Who should have carried on without Keith Moon either) and Hummel, it just wouldn't have been the same. Fun, I'm certain, but I could never have referred to that group as Big Star.

Of course, that didn't stop me from being terribly saddened when I found out Big Star had played a gig in Hyde Park the same week I saw Blur there last year.

Laz was awesome enough to post this in Random Music, because to be honest, I'd almost forgotten about the reunion. Anyways, though it'd be good to bump the thread for anyone who might not visit random:

Seeing them in July!

I'm usually not that crazy about reunion tours but I'm super-excited about this one.
