It's in one of those cheap 1996 paperback biographies - either the Paul Lester or Susan Cooper one. I think the latter. Sadly m
my copies are in storage!

Funnily enough, I believe your picture there is a cropped version of a scan I did. The url at the bottom matches one of someone who follows me on tumblr, so I imagine they nicked it from one of my posts. It's from "Pulp: The Tomorrow People" by Susan Wilson. Here's the full version :)

Susan Wilson, that's it. One of the few things that one had going for it was the cool DC-style interchangeable covers (And indeed the photos in general).

Got to agree with readytofall, that's a great picture (: Kind of looks like TIH Jarvis has gone back in time to 1992/3/4. (Hope that doesn't sound stupid, as I explained in another thread I'm not at my best!)

Now to my actual point - why was it called The Tomorrow People? Pulp were a lot of great things, but I've never found them futuristic! Sometimes experimental, yes, often (VERY) insightful, but not futuristic...! Unless it refers to a "we'll do it tomorrow" attitude? That could fit with their relatively low amount of releases compared to some others. But it wouldn't fit with your opinion of a band you love enough to write a book about.

Did Susan Wilson have an actual connection to Pulp? I have never read The Tomorrow People & have no idea who she is.


ps Sturdy, you should have plugged Truth & Beauty here, it's very good ;)

The word future can have endless explanations. So I dont think there will be a right answer. Maybe even Susan cant offer a satisfactory one. It's like everyone will have a answer they like in the end.

For me it's about the idea that, like Jarvis said, "We've always been a bit out of the touch with reality"  I feel that at that time, pulp was living in the future instead of the present.  It's kinda weird cos with so many songs about daily life they were supposed to live in the present. But I think they were just not.

@ readytofall, you're very welcome! Like Sturdy said, the only good the "book" is really for is the neat interchangeable covers & the nice full-size color photos inside. It's not even a book so much as a glorified magazine at only 80 pages, and offers just a general summary of Pulp's career & focuses about 90% on Jarvis. Most of it is just quotes takes from previous interviews anyways. Still, it's nice to look at every once in a while, and it's quite cheap on Amazon so I definitely don't regret adding it to my Pulp collection.

@ James I honestly have no idea why it's called "The Tomorrow People". I've read the whole thing & skimmed it over again just now & I'm pretty sure it doesn't use that phrase a single time. As far as I can figure out, it may have something to do with Jarvis' opinion that the 1970s were 'the last futuristic decade', or something along those lines, i.e. there was still the excitement of space exploration which Jarvis was very excited about. The book talks about how '70s the band is quite a lot, but also mentions that they surely have a long career ahead of them. I don't believe Susan Wilson had any connection with the band as no original interviews or pictures were produced for this book (I'm pretty sure about that). In my opinions she was probably just someone wanting to capitalize on the band's height of popularity in 1996. Could've been worse I suppose!

It was one of those done-in-a-weekend jobbies for a publisher piggy-backing on Pulp's being part of the zeitgeist.I bought this one and another, similar picture-heavy, low on text efforts around the same time.

They inspired a young Sturdy to sort it out though so in a way we should be grateful. God bless Susan, wherever she is (not still in Lyndhurst Grove, is she?).
