Well..Shotoki, that's actually a great song, but i wouldnīt dare to say Pulp influenced The Kinks. Maybe we should consider opening a new thread called "Pulp Under The Influence" about those songs that somehow could inspire Jarvis: this song would fit perfectly!

Thanks to you and everybody contributing to this thread: i've discovered great songs and bands I didnīt know before!

Sorry I misunderstood the topic! I think 80s Kinks are very underrated and it would be interesting to know if Pulp were aware of them, there is certainly a resemblance.

Suede were unlikely to imitate Pulp, but their b-side 'Sam' sounds like a pastiche of Jarvis.

also, http://howtoswim.bandcamp.com/track/snowflakes-2

I've always thought the ending of Suede's This Time was very Pulpy. Fine song!

 

(EVERY single time I've made a musical comparison to anyone, they've looked at me like I was some kind of deviant. So I'm well aware I'm in the minority here.)

It's a great song but sounds more like John Lennon circa 1972 to me.

The Smallest Splinter - Hamilton Leithauser
Wonderful song, but..sorry.. no link found.

It has a strong Ian McCulloch (an evident Jarvis' influence) touch.

The Be Be See - You K Gold 

I always thought this was very Pulp-y.

(A lot of songs from The Crayon Fields make them the most similar thing to aussies Pulp)

Also i'm not sure that Pulp ever listen to Soviet music and it's also only 2 notes, but i hear similarities of Russel's guitar intro in Monday Morning and this one

Blur by their own admission nicked the intro to Sunday Sunday from Love Is Blind.
That's gotta be a literal direct influence, right?

Someone on the superdeluxeedition site claimed that Pink Glove was a rip-off of The Boomtown Rats. Not sure if they meant a specific song or the general sound/Sir Bob's delivery. I think ArrGee is a big fan of theirs and probably the only one old enough on here to comment with confidence ;)

Ha ha! Well there are a fair few songs that could cross between the two of them.  A Tonic for The Troops and His n Hers arent so different in their overall feel, both are very good pop/rock LPs. I can imagine Geldof & Jarvis interchanging the lead vocals on a few of the tracks.  Cant think of any particular song that is akin to Pink Glove, but Me & Howard Hughes and (I never loved) Eva Braun are maybe the sort of songs that the commentator was thinking of. (BTW It wasnt me).

PS I am younger than Jarvis!

PPS I found the superdeluxeedition comment, I remember seeing Menswe@r support Pulp at Theatre Royal Drury Lane...
