Pulp fans around the world are staging a ‘day of action’ tomorrow (4th May) in order to drum up interest in a reissued, ‘deluxe’ version of Pulp’s final album, ‘We Love Life’.
The songs which originally appeared on the critically acclaimed album only tell half the story of the busy songwriting and recording period which the group engaged in between 1999 and 2001 under various producers, including Walker Brothers legend Scott and long time Pulp/Pink Floyd/Beatles producer Chris Thomas
Universal Music Group, in close collaboration with the group, issued two disc deluxe versions of Pulp’s earlier albums His ‘n’ Hers, Different Class and This is Hardcore, offering up to the world the delights of songs such as Can I Have My Balls Back Please, Modern Marriage, The Boss…and Nick Cave fronting the band on a ‘pub rock’ version of Disco 2000.
Songs from the We Love Life sessions such as Cuckoo Song, the Quiet Revolution and Grandfather’s Nursery have been leaked over the years to much acclaim from fans, but oddities such as The Performance of a Lifetime, M’Lady, St. Just and Medieval
Owl have defiantly remained in the vaults.
A Youtube video continues the story below!
Jarvis himself, not given to hyperbole has commented that “We could do quite a good one (reissue) of We Love Life”.

Although Pulp continue to be a going concern headlining festivals and venues such as the Royal Albert Hall last month, there is as yet no indication of new material. And with an album’s worth of music in the vaults, this could be the closest the world gets to ‘new’ Pulp.
