It’s easy to get cynical about the recent epidemic of broken-up bands reuniting and getting that festival money, but when the band in question is one like Pulp, the mere possibility of hearing “Common People” performed live tends to overwhelm any of those qualms. And now, those who haven’t gotten a chance to see the reunited band back in action will get an extended, high-quality look at it. When the band got back together a couple of years ago, they kept the camera running, and their new documentary Pulp: A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets covers the band’s triumphant 2012 hometown show in Sheffield. It looks awesome, and the local-color stuff (a kids’ soccer team with Pulp’s logo on their uniforms!) looks almost as great as the performance footage. The movie debuted at SXSW, and it’ll screen around the UK this summer. Check out the trailer below.
