Could Russell's New Musical Mean No More Pulp Involvement...?

"...and the pair - who put the project on hold last year while Russell, 50, toured with reformed Pulp..."

That's a bit past-tense isn't it?

Russell's hoping to stage parts of his musical at Tramlines this Summer, and perhaps stage the whole thing in early 2013. That doesn't suggest a lot of time for Pulp involvement, I must say...

How very sad :(

I dunno - Jarvis has got a lot more on his plate and still manages to tour. And he's just writing it isn't he - not acting, so he could probably still tour with rehearsals and that going on without him. Maybe it only had to be put on hold for the 2011 tour because he had a more active role (ie. actually writing the script)

They have hired an office in which to write, though. Suggesting that writing sessions will be quite intensive...?

Or is it going to be like his board game again? :)

I don't think it means Russell's involvement is over.  Plus Ralph is his tour manager so they could feasibly continue working on it while touring...

This is not a recent photo of Russell, is it???

Russell with a beard...when the hell did that happen? I can't believe even Twiggy doesn't know.

To be honest this is the type of thing I would have expected Russell to spend the past fifteen years doing. Venini and the one-off collab with The Long Blondes aside did his creative side grow a bit lazy? I know he has a family to feed and that he had been working on a novel in recent years but after seeing a (imo) kindred spirit of his, Luke Haines in action the other night, it makes me a bit sad that Russell's different slant on the creative arts was largely snuffed out, publicly at least, when he left Pulp. I suppose these things require money as well as effort and he did put a fair bit into Venini from what I remember reading.

 Maybe, it's become the Pulp beard and Jarvis has just lent it to him. They do look remarkably similar as facial hair goes!

It's knocked a few years - and a few pounds - off him. Maybe he found growing the beard an easier way of getting rid of the jowls than something more energetic...?

He did have a beard around 2000/2001 so that photo could be from then. It doesn't look like a recent photo although I could be wrong!

For what it's worth I can't see why doing this and doing some more Pulp gigs would be mutually exclusive. Who knows though.

Venini guitarist with a beard? Odd.

I'll take your view Mark - he does look a lot different to Russell 2011 in ways other than just the beard!

When putting on a new show, writers tend to be on hand during rehearsals in case it becomes apparent that a scene needs to be re written. That could potentially be done by email but easier if physically there.

Hold on - Russell with a beard?  Was this a joke? It was a joke wasn't it??

The scan link is clearly long broken - so... anyone still got the pic?

 Mark had a beard for a while as well. Found a photo whilst looking for that other photo of him with "Alien" hands from Mexico.
