❚ ALL THE ORIGINAL MEMBERS OF PULP, the coolest band to represent Britpop, have decided to get together and play some concerts next summer, starting with May 27, 2011 at the Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona, Spain, and on July 3 at the Wireless Festival in London, United Kingdom. Formed 1978 in Sheffield, England and originally called “Arabacus Pulp”, the six-piece achieved sudden success thirteen years later during the Britpop era as much for their music as for frontman Jarvis Cocker’s antics, ho-ho. Their unimpeachable breakthrough single was an ironic survey of class tourism titled Common People from their 1995 album Different Class which won the Mercury Music Prize the next year. The original lineup last played together onstage in 1996. They are frontman Cocker, drummer Nick Banks, keyboard player Candida Doyle, bass guitarist Steve Mackey, guitarist and violinist Russell Senior and guitarist Mark Webber.
