Jarvis Cocker & adoring fans @ Radio City Music Hall – 4/11/12
Pulp

Well, that was excellent… Jarvis Cocker wiggled and pranced around the room in his natty suit, geek glasses and Cuban-heel boots, a brazen showgirl in the body of a pervy librarian. Who else besides Jarvis would get cheers from a New York audience by announcing it was the anniversary of The Great Gatsby’s publication in 1925? And who else would recite lines from the book while throwing Snickers and Milky Way bars into the crowd? “There are only the pursued, the pursuing, the busy and the tired,” Jarvis said, quoting from Gatsby as a preface to “Something Changed,” one of Pulp’s big love ballads. “And if you are one of the pursued or the pursuing, this one’s for you.”

But everybody in a Pulp song is always pursued and pursuing, which is why their songs hold up so smashingly. They barely ever played the U.S. in their heyday, and Jarvis’ superb solo shows haven’t featured any Pulp material since the band split in the early 2000s. So ever since the band reunited the vintage “Common People”-era lineup, American fans have been waiting for this moment. -[Rolling Stone]

We >previously posted the setlist from the second of two nights, and now here are the pictures from Pulp‘s show last night at Radio City Music Hall (4/12) (though unfortunately none of opener Jeffrey Lewis) (venue rules).

The band now will jet across the US to play Coachella. Pictures from Tuesday’s show (which is also where the above review comes from) are HERE. More from Wednesday below…
