Now Playing @6Music tracklist July 8, 2011
Pulp have been one of the biggest talking points online this week after Jarvis Cocker and friends put on a stellar performance at Wireless in London’s Hyde Park. Not only that, but the band then announced another show at Brixton Academy in August – which sold out almost straight away – resulting in a second date being added.
We therefore built the Ultimate Pulp Playlist with you through the week and during the show.
As well as this, For Folk’s Sake and Fear of Fiction shared their musical tit-bits with us, and we wrap up everything else you needed to know about this week’s musical goings on.
Pulp – Do You Remember the First Time?

* The Beastie Boys have once again teamed up with Spike Jonze for the video to Don’t Play No Game that I Can’t Win. Featuring Santigold, the rappers have been transformed into action heroes and there is a promise of an ‘epic length’ version also coming out.
