Like they did with "After You" or even write a new one together? I think this would be a wonderful idea. Or rerecord a completely unheard of demo they have in their vaults.

I doubt it. Besides After You came after the last reunion.

If this is, as it seems, the final curtain, it wouldnt surprise me at all if they released something or other at the end to say goodbye. But itd very unlikely be new material. A re-recording of one of the unreleased demos like before. Cuckoo? Something happy-but-sad anyway. But equally, I wouldnt be at all surprised if they didnt

I'd like to think when Jarvis is too old to prance about on stage, they could still tour smaller venues with semi-acoustic sets drawing on the non-anthems and less electronic-driven tracks.

Imagine them coming to a playhouse near you, playing "The Pulp Songbook" with Jarvis' in-between song chat focusing on stories about how the songs came to be or what they remind him of.

They could play plenty of songs from both It and We Love Life in their natural form and stripped-down versions of songs from other eras well into their 70s if they wanted to!

To be honest, I'd take this type of concert now instead of the festival-headlining reunions (excited as I am for the summer to see them). But shows akin to their little 1999 concerts in Edinburgh, Venice and Cork would be a real treat to see.

Many years ago (1995), Ray Davies did something like this. It was a superb show at Bloomsbury Theatre going back over his career with an accompanying bassist.  I thought he was pretty old back then yet he was only 51.

I would be first in the queue for something similar from Jarvis in the next few years.  Sounds perfect.

Yeah, it's probably something that Jarvis would be more likely to do with one or two musicians and play all sorts of things, solo/covers/Pulp.

He did something similar in 2009 pulpwiki.net/Jarvis/16April2009ManchesterRoyalNorthernCollegeOfMusicManchester

But I'd love Pulp to do it.

Sounds like a good idea. I don't think we will get any new material before the tour but maybe after. I know it's years ago now but I vaguely remember Jarvis saying that he was pleased by the reception that "After You" received.

A new album would be fantastic but I'd settle for re-recordings of the album's worth of songs that were lost in 1999-2001.

I wouldn't be suprised if they record something 'Jarv Is' style at some of the shows. It's a great way to get material down for a band that dislike being in the studio. Nothing new. Maybe another 1999/2000 outtake.

I am still assuming those Abbey Road remasters Steve confirmed exist will get released before the tour?

I keep waiting for an announcement of a Half-Speed master of Different Class. Probably the only way they'll get me to shell out for my 4th copy of that record.
