Pulp were a rock band, formed in Sheffield, England in 1978, by then 15-year-old school boy Jarvis Cocker (vocals, guitar). They were originally known as "Arabacus Pulp,"[1] but this was shortened a year later.

History

(1978-1982) Origins

The first line-up was Cocker, David Lockwood, Mark Swift and Peter Dalton, though this soon disintegrated into a fairly un-set membership of Cocker and whoever else was around at the time. They played their first proper gig at Rotherham Arts Centre in July 1980, and made a demo tape the following year which they gave to the DJ John Peel. Amazingly they landed a Peel Session, and the tracks they recorded were pretty much in the typical Sheffield sound of the time (cf. Human League, Comsat Angels) - based on electronic New Wave and post-punk. There is also a Rotherham, New Zealand , Rotherham is a town in South Yorkshire, England. ... For other meanings of DJ, see DJ (disambiguation). ... “Peel Sessions” redirects here. ... The Human League are an English synthpop band formed in 1977, who, after several changes in line up, achieved great popularity in the 1980s and a limited comeback in the mid-1990s. ... Comsat Angels were a highly influential but commercially overlooked post-punk band from Sheffield, UK. Active (in various incarnations) from 1978 to 1995, the band were responsible for some of the most atmospheric music of the first half of the 80s. ... Electronica refers to a wide range of contemporary electronic music designed for a wide range of uses, including foreground listening, some forms of dancing, and background music for other activities; but unlike electronic dance music, is not specifically focused on the dance floor. ... The New Wave was a movement in American, Australian and British popular music, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, growing out of the New York City musical scene centered around the club CBGB. The term itself is a source of much confusion. ... Post punk generally refers to the particularly fertile and creative period following the initial punk rock explosion. During the first wave of punk, roughly spanning 1976-1983, bands such as The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Ramones and The Damned began to challenge the current styles and conventions of rock...


Despite the exposure on national radio, success was not forthcoming, and most of the then line-up left for university. A new set of musicians was gathered: Simon Hinkler (who later joined The Mission and produced All About Eve), David Hinkler, Wayne Furniss, Peter Boam, Gary Wilson, and Cocker's sister, Saskia. They managed to get enough local backing to record a mini-album in late 1982 entitled It, which was released in April 1983. This largely consisted of jangly, happy-go-lucky, folkish, romantic pop tunes, and was a change of direction from the Peel Sessions. For the community in Florida, see University, Florida. ... The Mission (known as The Mission UK in the United States due to a naming clash with a Philadelphia R&B band) is a gothic rock band formed in 1986 from the splinters of the freshly-dissolved rock band The Sisters of Mercy. ... All About Eve on Top Of The Pops in 1988. ... It was the first album by the British pop band Pulp. ...


But fame was still not knocking, and Cocker was becoming unhappy with his chosen musical direction. He was all set to throw the towel in and go to university, when he decided to hold a practice with Russell Senior (violin, guitar, vocals) and Magnus Doyle (drums). The three of them established a new, more experimental, artier, and noisier direction for Pulp, and were subsequently augmented by Peter Mansell (bass) and Tim Allcard (keyboards, saxophone, poetry). Russell Senior (born 18 May 1961, in Sheffield, England) is the former guitarist and violinist of the band Pulp. ... Magnus Doyle was the drummer for the British rock band Pulp and is the brother of long-term Pulp keyboardist, Candida Doyle. ... Peter Mansell was the bassist and sometime backing vocalist for the British rock band Pulp. ...


(1983-1991) Lack of success

Pulp continued to seek commercial success, even to the point of recording a single, Everybody's Problem c/w There Was (released in September 1983 on Red Rhino records) in the style of the then prevalent pop-group Wham!. Red Rhino's Tony Perrin, later a manager of The Mission, convinced Jarvis Cocker that "you could write commercial songs like Wham, Jarvis".[2] Wham! was a pop duo which was formed by George Michael and his best friend Andrew Ridgeley in the early 1980s. ...


Having survived a number of ill-fated gigs, Allcard left to be replaced on keyboards by Magnus Doyle's sister Candida. Following her first performance with the band, they were signed to a label called Fire Records, and began to record a number of singles that were later released as the compilation album Masters of the Universe. These tracks were much darker in tone than those on It, and often veered towards the likes of The Fall. Candida Mary Doyle (born 25th August 1963 in Belfast) is a keyboard player and occasional backing vocalist with the band Pulp. ... Fire Records is a legendary independent record label set up by club entrepreneur Clive Solomon in 1986. ... The Fall are a British rock music group, formed in Manchester in 1976, and named after Albert Camuss novel. ...


These releases were followed by an album, Freaks in 1987, recorded in one week due to pressure from the label. Its release ended up being delayed for a year, and the record was not well received. It is either loved or hated by fans, and might be considered the antithesis of the happy and optimistic It. Freaks is the second album by the British rock band Pulp. ...


It was during this mid-80s period that Cocker fell out of a window while trying to impress a girl, and ended up in hospital, temporarily wheelchair-bound. This gave Cocker ample time to consider his direction, and when, later, Freaks failed to be a success, Pulp folded, with Jarvis going off to London to study film. This article is about the capital of England and the United Kingdom. ... This article is about motion pictures. ...


The fold was short-lived however, and a new line-up, consisting of Cocker, Senior, Candida Doyle, Nick Banks (drums) and Steve Mackey (bass) emerged. They recorded another album for Fire after a separate deal fell through. This album, Separations, was a progression of the style of Freaks, with Leonard Cohen-esque ballads on side one and a more disco/Acid House infused track-listing on side two. Like Freaks, its release was delayed, to an extent lessening the potential impact. Nick Banks is the drummer in British band Pulp. ...

In the meantime, however, in 1991, a 12" recording - "My Legendary Girlfriend" became music periodical The NME's single of the week, and it was that which heralded Pulp's first steps towards fame. For other uses, see NME (disambiguation). ...


(1992-1996) Popular success

Frustrated that Separations still hadn't been released, Pulp signed to Warp Records imprint Gift Records in 1992. Fire attempted to capitalise on this by finally releasing Separations. The three singles released on Gift were later compiled on the album Intro which was released when they were signed up by Island Records.

Island Records then released the singles "Do You Remember the First Time?" and "Lipgloss", to modest chart success. These were followed by the Ed Buller produced album His 'n' Hers which reached No.9 in the UK charts and was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, and which was musically similar to the band Suede.

Suede (or The London Suede in the U.S.) were a popular and influential English rock band of the 1990s that helped start the Britpop musical movement of the decade. ...


This sudden increase in popularity was certainly helped by the massive media interest in a new wave of Britpop ushered in by the likes of Suede and Blur, supporting the latter in a tour of the U.S. in 1994. Britpop was a mid-1990s British alternative rock genre and movement. ... Blur are an English rock band formed in Colchester in 1989. ...


1995 saw the peak of Pulp's fame, with the release of their No.2 UK Hit single "Common People", their much loved performance at the Glastonbury Festival (standing in for the Stone Roses at the last minute) and their Mercury award winning album Different Class (the first album featuring Pulp fan-club president Mark Webber, who became a permanent member of the band on guitar and keyboards). This album, with its disco-infused pop-rock, and the trademark sordid yet witty lyrics about sexual encounters and working class life, is for most fans what Pulp are about. The album also contained follow-up singles "Sorted for E's & Wizz" (another UK #2 hit), "Disco 2000" (which peaked at #7), and "Something Changed" (peaking at #10). The UK Singles Chart is compiled by the Official UK Charts Company on behalf of the music industry. ... Common People is a song by the band Pulp. ...

Sorted for Es & Wizz is a controversial single from Sheffield band Pulp. ...


But domestic attention was not equalled in the rest of the world, and if Pulp are known beyond the UK it is perhaps more likely the result of Cocker's prank at the infamous 1996 BRIT Awards, where he invaded the stage in protest during Michael Jackson's performance (for which he spent the night in the cells accused of assaulting the child performers, though he was released without charge) [1]. This incident propelled Cocker into great controversy in the UK and elsewhere, and the band's record sales soared as a result. The Daily Mirror set up a "Justice for Jarvis" campaign backing his actions and carried out a stunt at Pulp's Sheffield Arena gig on February 29th, handing out free T-shirts with this logo printed on. The March 2, 1996 edition of Melody Maker suggested Cocker should be knighted. The Brit Awards are the annual United Kingdom pop music awards founded by the British Phonographic Industry. ...

(1997-2002) The price of fame

It was during this period of intense fame that long time member and major innovator in the band's sound, Russell Senior, decided to call it a day to spend time with his family (and out of the tabloid press). Cocker was also having difficulty with the celebrity lifestyle, battling cocaine addiction like many of his peers and a breakup of a long-term relationship. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


The fallout of all of this, and the ensuing depression induced by finding the one thing he'd been after all his life (fame) and then deciding that it wasn't really up to much, was the subject matter of the follow-up album This Is Hardcore: a trawl through the seedy world of Soho, which during its more navel-gazing, depressed-singer-in-a-hotel-room moments stylistically approached Pink Floyd's The Wall. Many of the fans who had so enjoyed the happier, more amusing and light-hearted approach of Different Class were somewhat turned off by the darker tone of the new record. Pulp also collaborated with Patrick Doyle on the song "Like A Friend" for the soundtrack to the movie Great Expectations. This Is Hardcore is an album by British alternative rock band Pulp, first released in March 1998 (see 1998 in music). ...

Pulp then spent a few years "in the wilderness" before reappearing in 2001 with a new album, We Love Life. The extended period between the release of This is Hardcore and We Love life is partly attributed to having initially recorded the songs which comprise the album and being dissatisfied with the results. Subsequent interviews also suggested interpersonal and artistic differences, including managing the fallout of the Britpop/Different Class era. Legendary singer/songwriter Scott Walker eventually agreed to produce the record and this symbolised a new phase in Cocker and Pulp's development. The record was lighter in tone to This is Hardcore and lyrically, songs reflected Cocker's recent interest in nature and perhaps escape from urban lifestyle e.g. "Trees", "Weeds" and "Sunrise". We Love Life is an album by Pulp. ... Scott Walker is the stage name of the American singer-songwriter Noel Scott Engel (born 9 January 1943 in Hamilton, Ohio). ...


Pulp subsequently undertook a tour of the National Parks in the UK, even playing a show as far North as Elgin in Scotland. Richard Hawley, the Sheffield based singer/songwriter was also present on various dates on this tour.


In 2002 the band announced they were leaving their label, Island. A greatest hits package was released: Hits with one new track. It is unclear whether this was the band's decision or released to satisfy contractual agreements. A music festival: Auto was organised (held at Rotherham's Magna centre) where they played their last gig before embarking on a hiatus from the music industry from which they are yet to emerge.

(2003-present) On hiatus

Cocker was involved in a number of one-offs and side projects, including the group Relaxed Muscle with Jason Buckle and the film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire where he fronted a group which included Steve Mackey and members of Radiohead. His first solo album Jarvis, with the participation of Mackey, was released to critical acclaim in November 2006.

On the 11 September 2006 the band re-released three of their albums (His 'n' Hers, Different Class, and This Is Hardcore), each with a bonus disc of B-sides, demos and rarities.
