PULP

"A Little Soul"


SHORT BIOGRAPHY:

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," but this was shortened a year later. The members of Pulp were all schoolmates attending City Secondary School in Sheffield and supported fellow school band Crude in their first gigs. Their breakthrough came after their change to Island Records, with the 1995 album "Different Class" as their artistically and commercially most successful.

They cite their influences as David Bowie, The Cure, The Beatles and The Kinks. Vocally Jarvis often sounds like Steve Harley of Cockney Rebel.

They are most famous in the UK, where their blend of disco-influenced pop-rock coupled with the amusing down-to-earth kitchen-sink lyrics of front-man Jarvis Cocker saw them become popular during the mid 1990s. In 1996 they won the Mercury Prize. After their last album We Love Life (2001), the band entered into an extended hiatus, from which they have yet to emerge.
