Watch Pulp Play Fallon

Reunited Britpop deities Pulp, looking just as debonair as you’d expect, were the musical guests on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night, and I’m very happy to report that they absolutely slayed. On the show proper, the band played their undisputed stone classic “Common People.” And as a web bonus, they also did a… More »

Pulp Announce U.S. Shows

Erudite Britpop greats Pulp reunited last year, but they never got around to playing any shows in the Western hemisphere, which was a total drag for the many Anglophiles on these shores. The band is just now preparing to correct that oversight. We’ve already learned that they’ll come over for both Coachella weekends in April. More »

Glastonbury 2011 In Photos & Video

Beyoncé doesn’t normally play festivals, but by all accounts she killed it at Worth Farm last night. After her Glasto headline performance the star told BBC she was so nervous playing for 175,000 people she sent Chris Martin her setlist to approve in advance. Of course between solo hits, Destiny’s Child favorites, and a medley… More »

Watch Pulp Reunite In France

Last night (5/25), resurgent Britpop sensualists Pulp performed their first show since 2002. It took place at the appropriately named Le Bikini in Toulouse, France as a sort of warm-up to this weekend’s performance at Primavera Sound. If you’re curious how it went, check out this professionally shot video of Different Class classic “Disco 2000.”… More »

Reading & Leeds Lineup 2011

If you’re a Muse or My Chemical Romance fan, I feel sorta bad for you, but today’s your lucky day: The bands are headlining this summer’s Reading & Leeds Festivals.

Jarvis Cocker Visits Jimmy Fallon, Escapes Wrath Of Questo

Last night Jarvis Cocker gave a spirited and loose-limbed performance of his Further Complications title track. He clearly enjoyed himself (and his magic hands). To further complicate things, though, there was a certain Roots drummer on site who was less than thrilled with the Pulp man’s presence. As Questo Tweeted during the evening’s festivities:… More »

Pitchfork Music Festival 2008: Saturday In Photos

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy

After a night of “classic” recreations, it was nice to dive into the current state of the indie landscape. Yesterday’s lineup was stacked, and we spent the day scissoring back and forth catching as much as possible, right through to Animal Collective’s relatively ornate light show to… More »

New Jarvis Cocker – “Girls Like It Too” (Live in Buenos Aires)

Looks like we have to go all the way to Argentina to hear the new cheekily titled Cocker tune, “Girls Like It Too.” Or, let somebody else go and check their YouTube. (Thanks for the tip, Lucas.) Jarvis knows his audience and surroundings well, peppering the background info on the boy/girl narrative with Argentinean slang… More »

CSS Are Common People Like You

The Pulp fans in us live on and on, and with Jarvis, Mr. Cocker gave us all more to love, opening with the swagger of “Don’t Let Him Waste Your Time” and “Black Magic” before exploring the Sheffield singer’s softer, darker side on songs like “I Will Kill Again” — and bringing out his inner… More »

William Shatner’s Celebrity Playlist

Why am I not surprised Captain Kirk likes the sound of his own voice? (Via iTunes.)

At least we can applaud his restraint with exclamation points. And I admit his Pulp cover is awesome.
