The summer of Pulp continued this weekend with a headlining appearance on the Main Stage at the Barclaycard Isle Of Wight Festival on Friday 16th June.
Three songs from the set were televised by Sky Arts late in the evening, repeated on Saturday 17th June at 7pm, with Common People available to watch in full via Sky TV's official YouTube channel for a limited time. Digital radio station carried the same performances in their Saturday evening programme from 6.55-10pm.
The Isle Of Wightreported how the band had soundchecked at the nearby Medina College, on the outskirts of Newport, in between GCSE exams.
Meanwhile, the classic Island-era Pulp singles from Lipgloss onwards are finally being made available via streaming platforms on a weekly schedule, along with 'remastered' promo videos. Unfortunately it appears, however, that not all songs are as they were initially presented on those original releases, with the The Sisters E.P. very clearly using edits/versions that were later included on the His 'n' Hers deluxe album. It's to be hoped that these will be corrected at a later date.
