On September 11th, His `N Hers, Different Class & This Is Hardcore will all be Re-issued by Universal Records.
That song, that album, that great big storm of chart topping success, its highs, (chemical or otherwise), its lows and the breaking down, head crushing dark bits are all brought together for the first time in the re-release of 3 classic Pulp albums - `His `N Hers' ('94), `Different Class' ('95), `This Is Hardcore' ('98) - with additional, mostly previously unreleased bonus material. How exciting. The sleeve notes have been penned by Mr Cocker himself, while the deluxe packaging will be provided by Universal Records. This wealth of lovely stuff will available from September 11th 2006 for any self-respecting Pulp fan to get their hands on - or indeed, any newcomer to their genius.
It has been 11 years since Jarvis Cocker's spontaneous dance routine hit our screens between shots of Sadie Frost in a shopping trolley. So much was this confidence that Cocker & co decided it needed to be realized there and then. Its moment was so urgent that the band immediately went into the studio with only two songs to record, albeit two great songs.
These three records represent five years of insane success, popularity and the breakdown of it all. Politics and music were crushed together as though it was all the embodiment of the changing times; that this shift in elections and the Brit-Pop explosion were intrinsically linked. It would be easy to draw links between the current Government and the timing of these reissues. As Jarvis recalls from recording `This is Hardcore', "We'd been invited to the victory party at Millbank but we didn't go. As I watched Tony Blair punching the air to the strains of D:Ream's `Things Can Only Get Better' I thought to myself: Is that so?"
