PULP (London Brixton Academy, 31/08/11 & 01/09/11)
Let’s be honest, Pulp aren’t the greatest live band on earth. Their musicianship is adequate; their visuals par-for-the-course, their energy nothing out of the ordinary. But when you got some of the best songs ever written under your belt, and the charisma powerhouse that is Jarvis Cocker , that doesn’t matter one bit. Great to see they’ve added more pre-His ‘n Hers and post-Different Class songs to the setlists, and of course there’s no greater singalong on Earth than Common People. Fantastically good fun.
