Hello Bar Italia people.

I've just started a new project - http://pulpsongs.wordpress.com/

The idea is that I'm going to write about every Pulp song, in order. It's not a completely original idea, but I'm hoping to do it as comprehensively (and, I hope, interestingly) as possible. Right now it's very much in its infancy, of course. I've just posted the first entry, but I'm hoping to keep it going with an entry every Saturday until I get to Last Day Of The Miners Strike - or maybe there will be new material to write about by then, who knows?

So, take a look, add it to your Google Reader (or whatever you use) and please feel free to say what you think about each track in the comments.

The first entry is here - http://pulpsongs.wordpress.com/2012/01/07/1-shakespeare-rock-2-life-is-a-circle/

(Oh, by the way, if anyone wants to design me a better header or background, or has any useful information about pre 'It' songs, please do share!)

Looks great, both style and content.

I rather enjoyed Mike's blog review of Pulp songs until he got lazy and gave-up!

Thanks for the kind words, everyone, I'll keep at it.
Is Mike around, BTW? I only found his site a week ago, had thought I was the first. Oh well, slightly different thing.

Updated! - http://pulpsongs.wordpress.com/2012/01/14/3-to-8-arabicus-pulp/

These early years are not great to write about, being unable to hear the actual songs and all that. Only a couple of weeks to "What Do You Say?" though.

I'm still here!

I do feel bad that I got distracted or busy or whatever and gave up on my Pulp blog. I still get compliments for it both here and on last.fm. Thank you all.

For those of you who weren't on the board when it was active, here's the URL: http://musicfromabachelorsden.blogspot.com/

Looking forward to checking out your blog, weej. I think it's cool that you're doing unreleased songs, which I had decided not to include.

Random question, though: Should I try and finish my blog?

YES. I would do it but I can't write (see previous posts for proof...)

Yeah, Mike. I had thought that if I was to write a book on Pulp it would be based on a review of all of their songs. But between your blog and Jarvis' own book (and now weej(ouija board?)) it seems to be covered very well or rather would be if you finished the blog.

Yeah, why not go for it? You seem to be most of the way there already.

We're finished with prehistory! http://pulpsongs.wordpress.com/2012/01/21/9-to-12-pulp-mk-1/
Next week on to ancient history.

I Scrubbed The Crabs That Killed Sheffield

Enjoy! I had to upload the first part of 'The Pulp Story' to Youtube for this. Shall I put the rest of it up, or is there no need?

It's a good listen so that gets a thumbs up from me. Oh, and it was broadcast in 1998, not 1997.

I must say your posts have been an interesting read so far, and I've heard "I Scrubbed the Crabs That Killed Sheffield" in full once but that was years ago and sadly I can't remember much about it. Keep up the good work biggrin

If anyone's heard 'I Scrubbed The Crabs' and can remember anything about it, then please feel free to leave comments about it on the page. Or send me a copy. (This is obviously not going to happen, but there's always hope)

All I can remember is that it's a two minute or so punky number with a chorus that goes "Wo-ho-ho, I scrubbed, I scrubbed the, I scrubbed the crabs that killed Sheffield", he screams as well in the middle. That's about all I can remember though.

This might be of assistance further down the line - I've also heard "How Could You Leave Me?" and it's a jazz song; pretty chilled out and slower than the rest of the band's early 1980s output that I've heard. Unfortunately, I cannot remember any of the lyrics.

Surely one day these things will surface!!

Yeah, pity there isn't a reissue of It coming out soon that they could throw all this stuff on. *grumble*

'I scrubbed the crabs that killed Sheffield' is already on the 2007 account

(It was not me who put it on, but thankyou to whoever did)

Haven't heard this in years. The earliest known example of Jarvis' exemplary patter. I wonder if this performance was what made ''Russell the muscle'' join the band!

It wasn't me either though I have had a copy for years. Sorry I didn't admit that earlier but I never knew it was in circulation (now it's clear why the lyrics are on the wiki).

There used to be a website that did this.  Now what was it called?  Bar Italia, wasn't it? smile

I wish you all the best, would be great to have a synopsis of all Pulp's songs down the years.
