Pulp Win An Ivor Novello Award!

A bit out of the blue to say the least (and I believe 19 years since they were nominated for the only time I think with A Little Soul), they were awarded with an "Outstanding Song Collection" gong this afternoon. Don't know how much of the band were there, but Jarvis was, picture in the article here, using his speech to talk Brexit:

Aww he looks made up! Well deserved, I suppose, if a little late.

All present, apart from Russell but he was named as one of the winners too. Here's the paps trying to get them to smile:

They all look great. Well deserved. Personally glad Russell wasn't there, having read his book I lost all respect for him.

I found his comments regarding the rest of the band chasing after fame (i.e. Continuing post DC) not just misjudged but quantifiably wrong. I was shocked that he hadn't ever listened to the bands post-DC work but fair-enough if that was the case. His attitude to Mark Webber and his self-regard as the crew's 'fave'. The idea of being stuck in that people carrier with him naming rocks all summer travelling to each gig sounded horrible and he gave the impression of being a pompous, self-righteous and arrogant man.

It was over a year ago that I read the book so can't give any specific page references but I've never read a book and been so compelled to dislike the author as a result of the book. It's a shame, the big shades, the stern face, iconic (and a definitive architect of the Pulp sound - especially the more avant garde side that I love) he was a real hero.
