Pulp posters for the English rock band from Sheffield fronted by Jarvis Cocker with other band members including Candida Doyle, Russell Senior, Mark Webber, Steve Mackey and Nick Banks.
These original Pulp posters were used to promote Pulp's singles and albums whose musical style consisted of disco-influenced pop-rock coupled with ‘kitchen sink drama’ style lyrics.
Jarvis Cocker and the band became reluctant figures in the Britpop movement and struggled to find success throughout the 1980s, but gained prominence in the UK in the mid-1990s with the release of the albums His 'n' Hers in 1994 and particularly Different Class in 1995, which reached the number one spot in the UK Albums Chart. Nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 1994 for the album His 'n' Hers; they won the prize in 1996 for Different Class and were nominated again in 1998 for This Is Hardcore.
The album spawned four top ten singles, including "Common People" and "Sorted for E's & Wizz", both of which reached number two in the UK Singles Chart.
This unique set of Pulp posters were specifically designed to promote the "Common People" single, possibly the most famous of all Pulp posters.
Pulp headlined the Pyramid Stage of the Glastonbury Festival twice and were regarded among the Britpop "big four", along with Oasis, Blur and Suede.
The band released We Love Life in 2001 and then took a decade-long break, having sold more than 10 million records. Pulp reunited and played live again in 2011, with dates at the Isle of Wight Festival, Reading and Leeds Festivals, Pohoda, Sziget Festival, Primavera Sound, the Exit festival, and the Wireless Festival.
A number of additional concert dates were afterward added to their schedule. In January 2013, Pulp released "After You", a song originally demoed for We Love Life, as a digital download single. It was the band's first single release since "Bad Cover Version" in 2002.
On 9 March 2014, Pulp and filmmaker Florian Habicht premiered the feature documentary Pulp: A Film about Life, Death & Supermarkets at SXSW Music and Film Festival in Austin, Texas. The film toured the international film festival circuit and was released theatrically by Oscilloscope Laboratories in the US in November 2014. It is the first film about Pulp (and Sheffield) that has been made in collaboration with the band.
