Pulp are an English rock band formed in Sheffield in 1978. Their best known line-up from their heyday (1994-1996) consisted of Jarvis Cocker (vocals, guitar), Candida Doyle (keyboards), Russell Senior (guitar, violin), Mark Webber (guitar, keyboards), Steve Mackey (bass) and Nick Banks (drums). Senior quit the band in 1996 but returned for tours in 2011, while Leo Abrahams (guitar) had been a touring member of the band since they reunited in 2011. The band gained notoriety in the UK in the mid 1990s with the release of their albums His ‘n’ Hers (1994) and Different Class (1995), which reached number one in the UK Albums Chart. Different Class spawned four top ten singles including “Common People” and “Sorted for E’s & Wizz”, both of which reached number two in the UK Singles Chart. Pulp’s musical style during this time consisted of disco influenced pop-rock. Jarvis Cocker and the band became reluctant figures in the Britpop movement and were nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 1994 for His ‘n’ Hers, they won the prize in 1996 for Different Class and were nominated again in 1998 for This is Hardcore, they also headlined the Pyramid Stage of the Glastonbury Festival twice. The band released We Love Life in 2001 after which they entered an extended hiatus, having sold more than 10 million records. Pulp reunited and played live again in 2011, with dates at the Isle of Wight Festival, Reading and Leeds Festivals, Pohoda, Sziget Festival, Primavera Sound, the Exit festival and the Wireless Festival. In January 2013 Pulp released “After You”, a re-recording of We Love Life, as a digital download single, it was the band’s first single release since 2002.
