steve's been known to mourn over the bands he dismissed or missed unintentionally: well, count me in. This band appears to have had its heyday--such as it was--while I was working on my doctorate, and activity not generally compatible with discovering new bands or eating or sleeping or keeping up on the laundry. So sue me.
But this is a fab song. I gather Pulp were the compatriots of your Blurs and Oases and Lushes.... at least that's what I hear here. And they seem to be the older brothers of Franz Ferdinand and The Killers, but it's not really fair to hold that against them. Jeebus, my younger brother is a fundie living in rural Pennsylvania. So we'll judge them on their own merits.
Make sure to listen to the lyrics, which are v. funny.
