The reunited Pulp—the brilliant Britpop act led by Jarvis Cocker, and responsible for anthems, dirges, and songs that somehow managed to blend the aesthetics of those two forms—is bringing the reunion tour that started last year to New York City. This morning the band announced that it would be playing Radio City on April 11; while on-sale details are scant at the moment, this is a fine excuse to post a bunch of videos of the band. Just another Monday morning, indeed. UPDATE: Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 27, at 10 a.m. ET. The videos are still below!
Pulp, “Disco 2000” (live at Reading, 2011)
Pulp, “This Is Hardcore” (live at Reading, 2011)
Pulp, “Babies” (live at Brixton Academy, 2011)
Pulp, “Sunrise” (live at Brixton Academy, 2011)
(We Love Life, Pulp’s final studio album and the record on which this track originally appears, was a hung over masterpiece. Maybe one of the most underrated albums of the ’00s?)
Pulp, “Monday Morning” (live at Glastonbury, 1995)
