It's Wireless, so it's technically a Festival, theres about 4-5 stages, the usual festival stuff, you know, like speed dating and the like. I went last year on the 'dance' day to see St Etienne, (i got a free ticket) and it was pretty terrible, just loads of pissed up/pilled up townie's all along for the 'experience' as i imagine the prospect of camping at V is a little too much for them.

I get chills even thinking about it now, especially as it was the night after the blur gigs there which, although it had it's fair share of drunken assholes, was actually a really enjoyable day/night out.

I'm not usually one for seeing reformed bands or comebacks (somebody asked me to go and see the Suede comeback gig, but I just couldn't be bothered ... saw them loads in their heyday and don't want that memory to be tainted) so I'm a bit on the fence as far as these Pulp comeback gigs are concerned.

I was lucky enough to catch them live a few times before they got big (when nobody seemed to be interested in them) and also just before they got hugely popular with "common people", so I suppose I'm priviliged and I can imagine it must be fantastic for those who didn't get the chance to see them live before.

The fact that Russel Senior is involved too makes it tempting to go and see them though. I always thought something was missing after he left. He was just such an important part of the early Pulp sound.

The "separations" album is still my favourite.

Pulp are one of my all-time favourite bands and I never got to see them back in the day so this is a dream come true for me. Sure, for my first time i'd rather see them play a regular venue rather than a big outdoor festival in the middle of London but i'll take what I can get.

Totally agreed on Russell Senior. I was over the moon about him being back.

Pulp headlining T in the Park in '96 was pretty special for 13 year old me. I saw them a couple of times in later years as well but wouldn't go out of the way for this one. It's not like they split up all that long ago really.

Is it just me or is the presale already sold out? People didn't seem so crazy about them before they split up ...

Managed to get tickets for Wireless late last night. I hope the atmosphere is better than the Blur gigs there. The one I went to was horrible, just full of beer-filled leery lads.

Thought i'd share this w/ Anorak because it's very much in the janglepop vein. It's the first song Pulp ever released (on a super-obscure LP compilation in 1982). Excellent stuff!

:D
Glastonbury Festival 1995. The Stone Roses pull out of their headline set after a mountain bike accident and Rod Stewart is unavailable. Last minute replacements, Pulp, take to the stage to face 80,000 people. They deliver a set ‘regarded as one of the best in the festival’s history’ climaxing with the era-defining song, Common People, and in the process catapult themselves to the forefront of the Britpop movement – an achievement that 10 years earlier seemed like an impossible dream.

Made with the full co-operation of the band, ‘The Beat Is The Law – Fanfare For The Common People‘ brings together original interviews, performances, promos, newly unearthed live footage and home videos to tell the story of Pulp and their contemporaries’ journey from the darkest industrial depths of the Steel City to the pinnacle of pop via the consciousness-raising techno/house of Warp Records.

Featuring original interviews with Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker, Russell Senior, Candida Doyle and Nick Banks plus Richard Hawley (Longpigs), Mark Brydon (Chakk/FON/Moloko), Rob Gordon (FON/WARP), Adi Newton (ClockDVA) and many more, ‘Fanfare for the Common People’ is a deep-fried feature documentary from the creators of the acclaimed ‘Made in Sheffield’.

Getting excited about seeing Pulp on Sunday:) Think the line up is a bit random though.

How's everyone been enjoying the shows so far? I thought they were amazing in Hyde Park. A little too Different Class heavy perhaps (i'm more of a His 'N' Hers man) but that's hardly a complaint. It was so incredible to hear Mile End. And it's just awesome to have them back, even if it's just for these reunion shows.

Thought the set was amazing, slightly spoiled by the audience of (in part) pissed-up idiots who'd been drinking the over-priced lager all afternoon.

I also saw their Glastonbury set, which was a shade shorter (two songs I think) and lacked the visuals but was an even more amazing event - nobody was 100% sure it was going to be them until they walked onstage, plus there's the 'heritage' dimension - quite an experience.

Reluctant to shell out for the Brixton show, but maybe it will have some more adventurous choices of material: Sheffield Sex City, anyone? Or more from This Is Hardcore, perhaps.

The first time I heard Further Complications, it kinda put me in mind of Vic Reeves's immortal 1991 LP I Will Cure You. Must dig out my tape of that.

Isn't it. It's the best thing they've done in years (!) I've spent most of the last week listening to it.

Ended up seeing 5 of the reunion shows, it still doesnt feel like enough, but Sheffield the other week was pretty much the perfect way to end.

Hoping for the Venini reunion now seeing as Russell went AWOL sometime last year.
