Pulp-fans were ecstatic when the legendary group reunited last year for a handful of exclusive live shows in arenas and at festivals across the UK. Before that, it had been about a decade since the band were last active. The reunion shows received great reviews and when they played in front of 45.000 fans in Finsbury Park, Evening Standard called it: “one of the sharpest, tightest and most ecstatically received reunion parties in living memory”.

In Denmark too, Pulp concerts are a rarity to say the least. In fact, the last visit was in 1998 when they played at Roskilde Festival’s Orange Stage. 

The eccentric frontman Jarvis Cocker from Sheffield formed the band back in the late 70’s when he was just 15 years old. However, it took another 10 years before the band experienced their well-deserved breakthrough with the release of the record His ‘n’ Hers in 1994 and the Mercury Prize-winning follow-up Different Class from 1995 that featured iconic tracks like “Disco 2000” and “Common People”. 

Pulp also released another critically acclaimed record with This Is Hardcore in 1998, before they parted ways for the first time in the beginning of the 2000’s, and their music is widely recognized for Cocker’s sharp pen and almost tragicomic descriptions of class division and everyday life as an outsider in the UK.

This summer, the wait for Danish Pulp-fans is finally over as they play at Northside on June 6th.
