Thread for Rare Pulp Clips (Youtube etc.)

Random Pulp videos get posted on Youtube from time to time and you never know what (or when) you're going to stumble upon.

I might be wrong, but I don't remember this being commonly shared or discussed (nor the Holly Johnson introduction!).

An early live version of Underwear - fantastic performance with great close-ups of the band particularly Russ and Jarv.

It's listed on the Pulpwiki with stills (of course!) https://pulpwiki.net/Pulp/18January1995LiveAtTheLighthouse so maybe it's just me who has never seen this.

Please feel free to add any new Pulp vids to you on this thread that many of us may have missed.

Nice to see this in better quality.

I did upload both Underwear and Common People from this show years ago, but from a fairly poor quality tape that had been heavily edited - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tfCOyb1pLn4

 I'm increasingly of the opinion that it's the best thing they've ever done.

Absolutely rock-solid pop song from a structural point of view, interesting vocal hook, incredible emotionally resonant instrumental, cinematic and dramatic scope, perfectly-judged lyrics (including vibrator reference), wears its Buller production well, a staple of live shows and always an absolute riot, and crucially hasn't worn in the way that 'Babies' and 'Disco 2000' have; it's somehow fresher than both, more vital, still has that incomparable frisson of fizzing energy at the start, the fabulous build-up and release at the climax, and the staccato guitar of the ending.

In my view, the two sessions they did for MTV Most Wanted in '95 capture that era at its absolute best despite Jarvis' rather questionable PJ Harvey quip):

An excellent rendition of Babies from the same show as the DYRTFT? clip above is available:
https://www.ina.fr/ina-eclaire-actu/video/i14044142/pulp-babies

Plus there's an interview with Jarvis from the same show -
https://www.ina.fr/ina-eclaire-actu/video/i15110479/jarvis-cocker-a-propos-de-son-groupe-pulp

I think this has been available online for a few years, but I've not seen it before.

Yes, I think someone on Twitter or here linked those before, but they're great to see. I'm reading Nick's book at the moment and just at the bit where he talks about their early success in France. It's pretty magic, those kids hanging on to Jarvis' every word, many not understanding what he was saying (without an interpreter)!

Hadn't seen this before. Bad Cover Version performed on Channel 4 (T4). It's more engaging than the group's final TOTP appearance with the same song. Special mention to Smackey looking cool AF with the sunnies on.

Here's a weird one. About 5 minutes of one of the V96 shows, pro quality, shot from the front of the stage, but focussing mainly on the crowd. Sound is a bit borked as well. My guess is it must either be footage for a news clip, or maybe just images for the big screens by the stage.

 

Oh and happy new year!

That comment is simultaneously true and makes me feel very, very old!

Funny how it all falls away. Nah, face it. You are young.

Not strictly a Pulp song but it was written by Jarvis.

It sounds different to the album version and looks like a pretty good performance.

Somehow I've never properly explored that All Seeing I album. I love the Human League & am quite fond of Phil Oakey so I guess I should check it out - although, I guess this is the only song he appears on? Mad to think that Jarvis' last top ten hit was in 1999 with Walk Like A Panther and it actually hung around the top 20/40 for a few weeks - i.e a bona fide hit with radio-play. It's surprising that he's never performed it solo/with Jarv Is... it would go down an absolute storm.

Anyway, here is half a holy grail. Babies from the Princes Trust gig, December 1994 (the link features all the artists who performed at this event - skip to 24:30 for Babies with some preamble with Jonathan Ross, Vic Reeves & Bob Mortimer - including an excellent anagram joke). The real holy grail from this show, We Can Dance Again was apparently performed too, tantalisingly never broadcast but very possibly recorded.

Great rendition of Babies though, with real quality footage. I had just been chatting to Sturdy that I'd never heard this performance so he shared the audio and I checked to see if it was on Youtube but this was only uploaded a few weeks ago! I used to have a poster of Jarvis hanging on my wall and he was in a loose-fitted black shirt, playing an electric guitar and I often wondered what gig it was from. Now I know!

Like yourself, Eamonn, I had a photo of that but didn't know where it was from. Enjoyed that! Great performance! Very clear sound quality.

That's the only song he features on. I would certainly recommend checking the album out. You have presumably heard the singles but there's also "Drive Safely Darlin'", a fun song with vocals from Jarvis, "Stars on Sunday", a ballad written by Jarvis and sung by Tony Christie. "Happy Birthday Nicola" (also written by Jarvis and sung by Christie) is quite interesting - Daddy reunited with long-lost daughter who was the product of a one night stand. Other than that, out of the songs which don't feature Jarvis in any way, "No Return" is a ballad that takes its backing directly from the choral loop from the preceding "Walk Like a Panther". Similarly, the closing track "Plastic Diamond" has the same backing music as "Happy Birthday Nicola" but with Babybird providing spoken verses. I can't say I rate any of the other tracks too highly but there's certainly a very mixed bag on there.

Not rare, but worth sharing nonetheless. In this clip, Jarvis lets 'Wickerman' stand on its own two feet as a remarkable piece of poetry:

Not Pulp, nor a clip, but it is extremely rare so I felt I had to share in case any other Cohen-heads in here have loved this cover as much as I do. Some of you may remember this being played as the encore on the Room 29 tour in 2017 - I've long prayed for a studio version, and it turns out one exists! Just don't ask how I got it.
Enjoy!
