As many of us know, it was originally written during the "It" sessions and she originally did vocals...and that version of the song never saw the light of day. Until now...

Such a glorious find!!!!! Enjoy! She is so cool.

Gah! I thought for a moment someone had finally unearthed the lost studio version from 1984. That's still pretty cool though.

Was it called "Something Changed" back then or did it have an alternative title?

This clip of Saskia is an extra from the DVD of the film from 2014. Did no one buy it?!

It had different lyrics, so probably had a different title.

Mark, what's the evidence there was a 1984 recording of this? What else would be on the tape? Would this be in the Paramore collection, perhaps?

 As far as I can gather, it's When You Cry, I Cry. I could be wrong though.

 I'm sure Jarvis has said they recorded "a very early version" of Something Changed with Saskia singing. The only original song they did with her singing lead, as far as I've been able to work out, was When You Cry, I Cry. 

I don't think Michael Paramore will have it as it was done a year after he left. Nor, as far as I can tell, does anybody else...

The suggested 1984 date must be wrong though, if it's from Saskia's time. Your own research suggests she was gone from the band before the end of 1983.

 

Can't see her fitting in too well with the Russell incarnation...

It wasn't Pulp as such - there was a brief idea that Saskia would have a solo career in parallel to Pulp. But the line-up on the session (Saskia, Jarvis, the Hinkler brothers, Magnus, plus Tony Perrin on bass) was very nearly still the Everybody's Problem incarnation of Pulp, so it could be sort of seen as a coda to that period.

Didn't Jarvis compose the bare bones to much of diff class at Saskia's house? Maybe that's why she sang an early version of it?

And...as Eamonn states, this is a clip from the extras dvd that came with the film.. Maybe everyone has forgotten that it ever existed?

Mark - thanks for the link. I'd forgotten about that session!

Jason - maybe it's one for you to ask Simon H about next time you speak to him. I don't expect him to have or provide the tape, but might be interesting to hear his take on it. If he remembers it!

I think we're talking about two different things here.

Something Changed has its roots in a song that was part of Pulp's live set in 1983, on which Saskia sang lead vocals. As Jarvis has said that they recorded that version, and the only song recorded around that time with Saskia singing lead was When You Cry I Cry, I'm assuming it was that.

Jarvis did write a lot of the lyrics to Different Class in an all-nighter when staying at Saskia's, true. But it doesn't sound like the sort of scenario where they'd be having a singalong - he's always painted that as being on his own at the kitchen table with a bottle of brandy, the night before they had to go and demo the songs.

Oops... Yep, thanks Sturdy, i think i got a bit confused, a "Senior moment" if you will... I didn't read the whole thread properly, soz..
As far as i know Saskia did an album's worth of demos with Simon & pals, sometime in '85, no Jarvis inclusion though..

Prince cribbed the title for When Doves Cry that very same year. He'd often stop by at the Hallamshire when on tour in the UK.

Pretty sure no one here will have heard it (certainly not me). There are about 30 people who were in the
Marples in 1983 who may have done!

Was just re-reading the Different Class Twitter Listening Party with Mark Webber's comments - a reminder that he wrote this:

Something Changed was an old song that Jarvis dredged up & we all dusted off. Theres a rehearsal tape of a previous incarnation of Pulp attempting it circa 1984. #timstwitterlisteningparty

This has just reminded me that the 25th Anniversary remastered Different Class should be coming out next month but there's been no word about it. Possibly postponed due to "The Event"... but I'd have expected to hear something my now either way.

Anyway that rehearsal tape of Something Changed would make a nice extra. But then again, I'm expecting a similar affair to the HnH's re-release, with no extra content.

Yeah, I've been wondering if an announcement for DC25 is pending. There's plenty of superdeluxes due between now and Christmas (Ultravox Vienna 40th anniversary, U2 All That You Can't Leave Behind 20th, Mansun's big career spanning box, The fucking "Menswear Collection" etc.).

I imagine there's a long lead-in between production and promotion so I'd be surprised if Covid has delayed it but unless it's announced in the next couple of weeks, maybe it ain't happening at all or not until next year.

At this stage I wonder if Jarvis' book will even appear in 2020. Due at the start of October as per the last update, you'd imagine we'd be seeing marketing/reviews cranking up by now.

That's a damn good idea. I know Jarvis isn't keen on digging into the archives, but I know last time an expanded DC was in the offing (2011ish), they were struggling to find any extra content that would make it worthwhile. So maybe they'll resort to it!

Chuck us the demo tape of DC (did Nick ever say what Micro Dot was?) and a cleaned-up compilation of the better radio sessions/live shows from the era (remastered Glasto'95 a shoe-in you'd imagine) and they'd be nearly there. Double vinyl with the 12 covers and maybe a DVD/Blu Ray with more home movies.

Mark, is Mark still the archivist of the group most likely to plan any future digging ?

'Microstop' was P.T.A.'s working title from the first of the DC sessions

Not meaning to piss on anyones chips here - but what do we legitimately think the chances of a DC anniversary reissue would present us? His N Hers was a wasted oppotunity - however the mastering was pretty nicely done, and breathed some fresh air into the old tracks. DC - we have already had We Can Dance Again, Catcliffe Shakedown, Paula, Dont Lose It, Ansafone demo - so that leaves us pretty limited as to whats available. Here is my idea.

Bonus Disc 1

Something Changed - Rehersal from the early days.
I Spy
Feeling Called Love
Something Changed - Orchestral versions
Disco 2000
PTA
Misshapes
Sorted - Demos
Soundcheck 1
Soundcheck 2

Bonus Disc 2

Live at V96 Remastered or Glastonbury 1995 Remastered.

Im seriously hoping for a nice juicy reissue, HOWEVER I just get a gut feeling we are gonna be bitterly dissapointed.

Scott, I'm curious, what are soundchecks 1/2 ?
I know what a soundcheck is in reference to balancing a mix of sounds for a performance, just wondered what these were referring to specifically?
