Me tooooooooo!

Those opening chords to I Spy sure went on a long time. Gives me shivers thinking about it. Was also a little worried that he'd be behind bars after the Brits. Kids, eh?

 Oh gawd yeah! I remember my big brother telling me with glee what had happened & the concert would be cancelled.

He was just frustrated because our mother wouldn't let him go to gigs until he was 16 but because he returned from concerts alive and well, I could go to this one, my first and I was only 12!

I wish there was a recording of it. Jarvis' was on top comedic form & they played the perfect set for me at the time. Everything from DC bar Pencil Skirt & all the singles from HnH plus Acrylic Afternoons. I think it was the only time on this tour that they played 'Lipgloss'

I'd only just started to delve further into their back catalogue beyond DC & HnH. I remember starting with 'It' and taking the CD back to HMV because I honestly thought it was the wrong band. I swapped it for Intro, which was a much more to my liking.

I wasn't there, but I'm just listening to the Boston Paradise Club show from 1998. This was the first night of the "This is Hardcore" USA/Canada tour and the first time many of the songs from the album were played to a big audience. Jarvis' between-song banter is on fine form and it's quite a varied setlist ("I Want You", "We are the Boyz" etc). It's well worth a listen.

In case anyone reading this is concerned, I'd just like to say that it's not completely inevitable that if you go to a Pulp or Jarvis gig, I'll be somewhere nearby, ruining it for you. I'm not sure I've even been to that many, compared to some of you.


How many is many?  Think I am at 16 (12 Pulp + 4 Jarvis).  Only Pulp tour I missed was in 1998 due to getting married that year and being on honeymoon whilst Finsbury Park gig happened.

Ooooh.

Heineken 1995
Barbican 97
Finsbury Park 98
Birmingham 98
Edinburgh 99
Leeds Fest 2000
Birmingham 2001
Dalby Forest 2002
Leeds Fest 2002
Auto 2002
Wireless 2011
Leeds Fest 2011
Sheffield Arena 2012

And Jarvis -
Sheffield Plug 2007
Glastonbury 2009
Peak Cavern 2018

And what the hell, Venini -

Glastonbury 99
Leeds Cockpit 99
Shepherds Bush Empire 99

So 13 Pulp, 3 Jarvis. Unless I've forgotten any.

Strikes me that I didn't get to all that many 'proper' Pulp gigs - lots of festivals. Guess I didn't really have the means to go following them round the country back when they were touring.

Nice list. Between the festival sets and 'proper' tours, Jarvis is actually pretty good at doing interesting small-scale things isn't he?

oh god i think i've seen them about 20/25 times plus jarvis stuff must be at least 30/35. Didn't see them properly until 98 so I made up for a lot of lost time.

I remember when I was little watching some random bbc show on a sunday in the 70s and it was about some weird middle aged women who followed barry manilow around. And I thought I'LL NEVER BE THAT SAD

Aargh, how could I forget the Halloween show! Yes, of course. Hmm, wonder if there's anything else I haven't remembered.

I always like threads like this. Go on then I'll play.

Pulp
Leadmill Nov 93 (very important to me on a personal level)
Octagon Apr 94 (my best/fav show)
Leeds Heineken Jul 95
City Hall Oct 95
Then I really lost interest cos Russell left
Magna Dec 02
Arena Dec 12

Jarvis
Carling Academy Nov 08

Extra bonus show!
I was at the live performance of The Big Melt at the Crucible in Sheffield in June 2013. Not a solo show but not a Pulp show. Rather a bit of both.

Some enviable lists there saw119 and ArGee - personally I've never been to a Pulp concert that I didn't enjoy, but I still wish I could swap a few of those early-00s festival sets for some in the 92-95 period.

Pretty comprehensive that Jason. What for you were the standout tracks performed from the early days? I really do still crave a live performance of Death Comes To Town (aside from the excellent Drury Lane and 1987 live gig thats out there).

 Looks like we were all staying at home by comparison.  That written, JASON has a rapid fall off post 1993 since I started following Pulp...
