They made a few good tunes, they did some funny videos, and while they might be National Treasures, they’re nothing serious. Are they? This book argues that they should be taken seriously – very seriously indeed.
Attempting to wrest Pulp away from the grim jingoistic spectacle of Britpop and the revivals-of-a-revival circuit, this book charts the very strange things that occur in their records, taking us deep into a strange exotic land; a land of acrylics, adultery, architecture, analogue synthesisers and burning class anger. This is book about pop music, but it is mainly a book about sex, the city and class via the 1990s finest British pop group.
