Pulp: a Film about Life, Death & Supermarkets

30.4.14



Starring Jarvis Cocker, Mark Webber, Candida Doyle, Nick Banks, Steve Mackey
and the people of Sheffield.

At the time britpop became really a “thing” in the 90s, Pulp were already around for 15 years, making excellent records on Fire, the masses didn’t seem to care about very much. When they achieved commercial success in 1994, they were an experienced band still growing and Jarvis in particular an outstanding writer. In those times when the NME trends shaped the world and the interest of the worldwide media on everything British indie rock music produced daily, became senselessly massive, Pulp got what they deserved for a long time and hit stardom status.

Their story is more or less well known today, 13 years after the release of their final record, but now it gets caught on film too. “Pulp: a Film about Life, Death & Supermarkets” is a documentary/concert movie directed by Florian Habicht, that follows the band as they get ready for their anniversary live show in their hometown, Sheffield. It premiered at SXSW to an excellent response and judging from the trailer it feels quite deserving of the attention.
