: ATTENTION ALL PULP PEOPLE :
: interim message to our beloved fans :
I don't want you to think that we're neglecting you because we had that hit single (we're not). Everything got crazy. Since "Common People" was released we've been working all hours of the day in the studio recording the LP. We forfeited our summer and have been cancelling holidays left, right and centre. The newsletter is long overdue, I know, but now I'm so involved in the group it's really hard for me to find any time to write things. So now I'm offering this brief but factual message to tell you what's happening and let you know we haven't forgotten you're out there, to thank you for the overwhelming success of the last record, and promise you a proper fan club communication in the near future.
A FANTASTIC NEW SINGLE
We are assured that special vinyl editions of both this single and the last one will follow shortly. (The "Common People" vinyl was delayed due to a cock-up beyond our control.)
A FANTASTIC NEW ALBUM
We're still hard at work trying to finish this on time, but the new Pulp LP is scheduled for release on October 9th. The title, tracklist and final running order are yet to be decided, but I can exclusively reveal the names of the 15 new songs that have been recorded in the sessions...
ANSAPHONE, BAR ITALIA, COMMON PEOPLE, DISCO 2000, F.E.E.L.I.N.G.C.A.L.L.E.D.L.O.V.E., I SPY, LIVE BED SHOW, MILE END, MIS-SHAPES, MONDAY MORNING, PENCIL SKIRT, P.T.A. (PARENT TEACHER ASSOClATION), SOMETHING CHANGED, SORTED FOR E'S & WIZZ, UNDERWEAR
