PULP PULP PULP PULP PULP PULP PULP PULP outtakes
This weekend I travelled up to the lovely British hamlet of Sheffield for a wedding. This of course involved lots of alcohol, bad dancing, wincing at Park Hill, listening to Pulp and visiting friends who lived in the same road as Richard Hawley. Exciting. The Pulp I was listening to was the ace bonus disc on the recent reissue of Different Class, which is so good it can't be put down in words. No really. Except for that Common People vocoder mix. Ow.
Anyway the three Pulp deluxe editions were a good start at releasing some of the unreleased stuff, but were still incomplete bside wise, and still left out other unreleased songs. In particular its very annoying that Island saw fit not to re-release We Love Life, no doubt due to the bad sales it encountered on its first release, because a lot of the bsides and outtakes from those sessions were rather stunning. So anyway today I thought i'd give you one very old Pulp song which remains unreleased; My First Wife, captured here live in Nottingham in 1987, and two songs from the We Love Life era that were left off of the album; so we have Roald Dahl recorded live at the Meltdown festival in 2000, and the studio outtake Grandfather's Nursery. Hope you like them.
