Made in 1995, at the height of “Brit Pop” (that much hyped re-imagining of the 1960s), Pulp: No Sleep till Sheffield follows the band on their tour of the UK, which culminated with a gig in Sheffield, the Pulp’s hometown.

While best known for its stainless steel, cutlery production and incredible greenery (with 2.5 million trees, the highest ratio of trees to people of any city in Europe), Sheffield is also famed for its wealth of musical talent, a list which includes Joe Cocker, Def Leppard, The Human League, Cabaret Voltaire, Heaven 17, ABC, Richard Hawley, The Longpins, Moloko, Arctic Monkeys, The Long Blondes and, of course, Pulp.

Though associated with “Brit Pop”, Pulp were formed in 1978, and had released 3 albums, by the time of their breakthrough record His ‘n’ Hers in 1994, which announced a band of talent, originality and wit. This was followed in 1995, by the equally brilliant Different Class, which delivered one of the decade’s greatest pop songs,  “Common People”.

This summer, Pulp tour the Festivals, starting on May 27 at Primavera Sound, Barcelona, followed by the Isle of Wight Festival on June 11, and T in the Park on July 10. For full details check here.
