Fire Records (2022) UK
Pulp's debut and one of their most honest recordings - capturing a band at the beginning of their startling career. It is a gentle, mainly acoustic album that hints at the musical directions Pulp would later pursue.
The album touches on the majestic, theatrical ballads of Scott Walker, as well as the stark, folky song poems of Leonard Cohen. Certainly an album by a young band trying to pinpoint their direction, and absorbing many an influence from all around, It has aged beautifully into a charming collection.
