Is Pulp The Greatest Band I Never Heard Of?

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Every once in a while I get on a music buying binge, and I'm on one now.  I sort of get hold of a group or a movement   I don't know much about and then buy everything. I'm currently on a Brit Pop spree. So here's the group I'm listening to now: Pulp.  I mean, why haven't I ever listened to these guys before?  They're amazing.  They have song called "Disco 2000" which is all goofily happy and disco-ie even though it's about a guy who is in the middle of a failed life too afraid to meet up with the girl he used to like.  And then there is one of the bitterest songs ever written, "Common People."  If you want to have a blast, listen to William Shatner's version of the song at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ainyK6fXku0.

Pulp, it's a a pint of bitters.
