Sheffield, 1988, ‘The Day That Never Happened’. Following a disastrous farewell show in their hometown, PULP move to London in search of success. They find fame on the world stage in the 1990s with anthems including ‘Common People’ and ‘Disco 2000’. 25 years (and 10 million album sales) later, they return to Sheffield for their last UK concert: what could go wrong?
Giving a career best performance exclusive to the film, the band share their thoughts on face, love, mortality – & car maintenance.
Director Florian Habicht (Love Story) weaves together the band’s personal offerings with dream-like specially-staged tableaux featuring ordinary people recruited on the streets of Sheffield.
Unveiling the deep affection that the inhabitants of Sheffield have for PULP, and the formative effect the town has had on the band’s music (and front-man Jarvis Cocker’s lyrics in particular) PULP is a music film like no other – by turns funny, moving, life-affirming and (occasionally) bewildering.
