A NIGHT OF PULP MUSIC IN LONDON

THROWBACK is a London club night and we're having a PULP SPECIAL on Friday the 24th of APRIL.

Here's the blurb, pulp fans:

THROWBACK

April the 24th at the Phoenix bar, Cavendish Square. http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/25/25974/Phoenix/Oxford_Circus

 It's the Pulp Special. We'll be playing ALL THE PULP SINGLES BETWEEN RAZZMATAZZ UPTO AND INCLUDING THIS IS HARDCORE!



Do you remember dancing in your provincial night-club or student disco? Do you remember the way the dance floor packed out to Echo and The Bunnymen, Carter USM, The Wedding Present, Blur or Pulp?

BRITPOP, GREBO, MADCHESTER, SHOWGAZING, NWONW, C86... COME ON DOWN! 


DON’T YOU WISH YOU HAD A CLUB LIKE THAT TO GO TO NOW?

Aren’t you sick of the same club nights playing the same haircut indie /nu rave / myspace-ache?
Aren't you sick of the fact that the only time they play one of YOUR songs is in an ‘ironic’ way?
Don't you wish you had a club to go to that you actually like?

THROWBACK is that club night!


5 POUNDS AFTER 9PM...


Current Mood: excited

His & Hers, Different Class and This Is Hardcore are being re-issued this year, and the tracklistings have just been announced. Each comes with a bonus cd. I was expecting these to be just compilations of b-sides but instead the powers that be have miraculously decided to include the unreleased session tracks aswell. These include songs like "Watching Nicky" and "We Can Dance Again," the mere existence of which was hotly debated before.
I'm so excited about this that I woke up in bed yesterday not sure if I'd dreamed it all.

Take a look:

Newsnight
NME.com: Jarvis Cocker breaks his silence

Pulp singer bears his soul on TV

Jarvis Cocker gives a rare television interview tonight (October 28).

The Pulp singer, who has been absent from public life in recent years, breaks his silence in an interview with Newsnight presenter Kirsty Wark, broadcast at 10pm on BBC4.

Cocker tells Wark: "The celebrity thing is a big factor, a big myth in our society. I think it's almost like, without getting too pompous about it, it's almost like something to believe in, isn't it, it's like heaven, it's like believing in going to heaven, it's like thinking 'God, if I get famous, everything is going to be alright'."

And of the state of contemporary politics, Cocker reckons, "I would just like something a bit more alive. You know, it's like the nearest thing to an act if social insurrection recently was people scrapping outside Ikea because they had cheap leather settees. Now I think that's sad - that that's what gets people worked up, a cheap settee."

He also talks openly about his "personal meltdown" following his rise to fame, and his intriguing involvement in the new Harry Potter film.

Did anyone happen to record it?

HP album
This will go on my own LJ tomorrow, but a sneak preview for you guys :)

--

Apparently, only two of the three tracks on which Jarvis sings on the new Harry Potter soundtrack were actually written by him. Guessing which two is something of a tricky game, because there's something distinctively Pulp about all three, even apart from Jarvis' (slower, rockier, older) voice.

First up, and the one that's circulating widely around t'internet, The Night. The music is a darker repeated stretch of Franz Ferdinand's Take Me Out, specifically substituting classic Pulp lyrics on a Potter theme, so that "I say don't you know / You say you don't know / I say Take Me Out" becomes "So take your hands off me / tonight I'm breaking free / This is the night". Apart from that it's got all the classic sounds of what made early Pulp sound dark and just right for Harry Potter - pitched somewhere between Masters of the Universe and The Mark of the Devil. On the other hand, it's got some of the sound of Jarvis' later work - Relaxed Muscle fans may hear more than mere echoes of 3way accumulator. It suffers a little from being an in-between song, it would be difficult to dance to (though I'm more than willing to have a try), but it's not one of the pure lyrical numbers either. Expect protests about it being filthy. I don't care, it's Jarvis, singing something properly, for the first time in ages.

Secondly, and here I don't have such a good recording, favourite for not being written by Jarvis, disco-comedy song Do The Hippogriff. While it's the most likely not be Jarvis' work, there are some trademarks. The straight noise intro like Do You Remember The First Time or Razamatazz, only a straight shout, which sounds like a song I can't place at all, and dig for a while to discover is We Are The Boys from Velvet Goldmine. Once I've figured that out there are other similarities in the song - though the latter isn't introduced with Jarvis shouting "Alright Hogwarts! Are you ready for some real music?". It's supremely silly. The lyrics aren't overwhelmingly Jarvis, which is what makes it possible he didn't write it, but someone's shoved in the "ma ma ma ma ma ma ma" that only Jarvis can do. As to the lyrics, well... "I spin around like a crazy elf / dancing by himself / I boogie down like a unicorn / I won't stop until the break of dawn". You get the idea.

Finally, and I will eat my ears if Jarvis didn't write this, Magic Works. The title's a bad start, sounds dangerously like some sort of Disney love song. Well, don't panic, but there's more than a bit of that in the music too... soft intro; "This one's going out to to all the lovers out there. Hold each other tight, and keep each other warm". But of course it's not slushy rubbish, it's Jarvis, and the sentimental sweeping orchestration belies something darker behind the words. It's classic early or late Pulp, somewhere between She's a Lady and I Want You, probably closer to the latter. It bears a remarkable resemblance to unreleased track The Quiet Revolution and brings a tear to the eye, but then it's me, so what doesn't? Oh yeah, real life. What would be soppy and trite from Dido is haunting and layered with meaning, at least for those of us whose emotional adolescence was soundtracked by Jarvis, from teenage fumblings to His'N'Hers, through drunken sixth form nights to Different Class, to post-university disorientation with We Love Life.

"And dance ... Your final dance / This is ... Your final chance / To hold ... The one you love / You know you've waited ... long enough / So believe ... that magic works"

Well quite. Those who strictly liked Different Class only won't see anything in this to make them optimistic about the rumoured 2006 Jarvis solo album. Long-standing Jarvis-lovers will be glad that, whatever it is, he's still got it, somewhere, and many will be relieved that Relaxed Muscle was an experiment, not a whole new direction.

Get a date with the night
Seeing as how I just spilt my cocktail all over my lap and the Whiskey is penetrating my underoo's, this post will be brief.

On friday December 31st ( that's New Years Eve to all you who did'nt know) Carlos Dengler or Carlos D. as most people know of him, will be our guest DJ at Lipgloss.
As well as being a heart throb Bass player in Interpol he is a stand up guy and a great DJ. I have spent many nights dancing a sweat up to his sets at Lit in NYC, and have spent many nights mooching girls off his arm. (you do what you gotta do)

So now you might be asking yourself, "Why the fuck is he telling me all this?". The answer is simple my sweeties. I want you! Yeah your hot ass.

Typically New Years Eve blows...No question about it. So that's why I'm letting you know FAR in advance before you have to commit to some sad assed dog washing party or some chips and dip party, rockin it in with Dick (98 years old) Clark. We've all been to those parties, shagged the wrong person, drank too much, talked to the most boring people all whilst looking good enoufe to eat off of a stick.

So this year I say tell your friends to stuff their parties, make plans to play some other dive bar that you'll probably play another 8 times before August, plan on smoking your first piece of crack another night, tell your Aunt that she has Alzheimer's and the Boogle tournament was last month...whatever. Just get your plump little cherub cheeks out to Lipgloss and kick the New Years Eve straight in the nuts!

From AcrylicAfternoons.com:

Following the sad news of John Peel's death earlier today, Jarvis has paid tribute to him by posting a message on the Radio 1 website. Peel was credited by Jarvis for 'validating' an early Pulp when he offered the band a coveted Peel Session in 1981. Pulp recorded a further three sessions for him in 1993, 1994 and 2001. Peel even gave Pulp the chance to host his radio show for three nights during November 1997 and more recently Pulp played at a party in celebration of Peel's 40 years in broadcasting. Here's what Jarvis had to say:

"It would be absolutely impossible to write a history of the last 40 years of the British music scene without mentioning John Peel's name. He was one of those few people about whom you could truly say that the world would have been a much different place without him. For many years he almost single-handedly championed new & challenging music in the U.K. Through his radio sessions he allowed unknown & unsigned bands to be heard for the first time. Through his work with the BBC World Service he brought some of those same bands to a Worldwide audience. On the few occasions I was fortunate enough to meet him I found him to be a witty but quite shy man who was completely unimpressed by the "razzmatazz" of the music industry but who could instantly lay his hands on any obscure single you could mention hearing on his show whilst in your teens.

My teens were when Peel was most important to me I guess: the local radio stations wouldn't play any "Punk Rock" cos they thought it "wasn't music". One night in frustration I started tuning the dial & suddenly - Bang! - there it was; I caught the end of an Elvis Costello track, heard the dry, slightly droney voice that followed & I was hooked. A whole new world opened up - stuff that you would never get to hear anywhere else. & it was fun! It wasn't dry & academic - the monologues that invariably followed each song were often as entertaining as the tracks themselves (sometimes more so). In a world that is becoming ever more homogenised & pre-programmed John Peel stuck up for the "sore thumbs" of the music scene & I really can't think of anyone who could have done it better or who's going to do it now he's gone. I will miss him greatly & my utmost sympathy goes out to his friends & family."

PULP news
Fans of Pulp and Harry Potter both have something to cheer about. According to The Sun, Jarvis Cocker has been brought on to score the soundtrack for Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire. If that isn’t enough to make you salivate with delight, Cocker will also make a cameo in the film. Wait… is that the sound of diehard Britpop fans around the world wetting themselves? Yes it is. Myself included. Supposedly the new Potter director Mike Newell wanted to change things up a bit after John Williams scored the past three films. According to The Sun’s anonymous source at Warner Brothers, “Everyone here is really excited about Jarvis being involved in Goblet Of Fire. He is a very talented musician who is a big fan of movies and knows exactly how they work. You may just think Jarvis is the bloke in specs who fronted Pulp but he is a man with many hidden depths.”

In fact, it was Cocker who approached Franz Ferdinand to write a track for the upcoming film. Singer Alex Kapranos told VH1, “We've been asked to write some music.There's a section where there's a band of ugly sisters playing and I think, well, some members of Franz Ferdinand may be the ugly sisters in the band." Jarvis Cocker AND Franz Ferdinand working together for the good of mankind. Is it just me, or does Jarvis eerily resemble Harry Potter a bit? Cocker does have much better glasses.

Pulp
You are Pulp. Youre quite popular as most people
find it easy to relate to you. You can be a
little eccentric at times, but this only makes
you more endearing to the people around you.
You refuse to conform - people tend to change
to suite you and you plan to keep it that way.
