leeds festival 2011

Sunday 28 August 2011, Bramham Park Maybe you watch grainy footage of it, looking on in envy at those lucky enough to be present, wondering what other events informed that particular day, wondering what the day’s atmosphere was like, what the acoustics were like, above all what it felt to experience that moment in all its glorious reality. With Jack and Meg now dearly departed, it’s clear She Keeps Bees are sending a strong message to The Black Keys and their ilk that the modern blues crown isn’t all theirs for the taking just yet. For this particular writer, Pulp’s 1995 Glastonbury headline appearance is one such moment. United Kingdom, Javascript is required to view shouts on this page. Always a more dynamic band on stage than on record, especially when Nick Valensi furiously explores the limits of his fret board when unleashed on lead duties, the New Yorkers continue to breath new energy into ‘The Modern Age’, ‘Last Nite’ and ‘New York City Cops’, giving them a vibrant feel which belies age and familiarity. Woodstock is another popular one, as is The Who at Isle Of Wight 1970. But Pulp?

Eventually, order is restored with a closing flurry of ‘House Of Fun’, ‘Baggy Trousers’, ‘Our House’, ‘Madness’ and ‘Night Boat To Cairo’, re-animating the crowd with some of Britain’s best-loved pop tracks. However, considering this is a recently reformed band inviting us to join in on a celebration of their career, one or two gripes do start to emerge. So now that chance does present itself, the chance to catch a glimpse of a band with genuine festival pedigree in action and, if we’re lucky, to be in attendance as another defining chapter is written. Before then, a Main Stage line-up boasting one of the US’ finest exports, as well as some of the best under-the-radar bands around at the moment scattered liberally around Leeds’ numerous other tents, offers more than enough opportunities for Pulp’s thunder to be stolen. Whether in addressing those on one of the site’s fairground rides, who will have the unique experience of ‘throwing up during a Pulp concert’, trotting out quotes of the day from the 1700s, or seeking assurances of dancing from the crowd when doing away with his jacket immediately prior to the rip-roaring ‘Disco 2000’, Cocker oozes personality and confidence, making a mockery of his lack of stage time over the last decade. Let us know what you think of the website. Always one of rock’s most enigmatic characters, it is immediately apparent frontman Jarvis Cocker has lost none of the trademark onstage appeal or individuality. It got off to a damp start, but the enthusiasm of Pulled Apart By Horses and Metronomy got the crowd in the mood for MCR's sensational but silly headline slot, There's anarchy from Odd Future and steady songs from the Strokes – but it's Jarvis Cocker's gang who steal the show as the sun finally shines at Reading festival 2011, writes, Available for everyone, funded by readers. Leeds, When Pulp ceased to be in 2002 (thanks more to a quiet dissolution rather than a messy split) it seemed the chance to witness Jarvis and co in a festival setting, to soak up some of the magic which made that 1995 performance so special, had slipped away forever. Man they were bloody good. Subsequently, many rumours of reunion had come and gone before cheeky hints at a return earlier this year were turned into reality. at Bramham Park, Friday 26 August 2011 — Posted on 29 Aug 2011 at 12:43pm, The Strokes ‘In a Better Place’ As Work Begins On New Album, Bring Me The Horizon post Teardrops from Post Human: Survival Horror EP, Sigur Rós set release date for Odin’s Raven Magic album, Osees make plans to tour UK and Ireland next year, Small Moves Records launched with Golden EP feat. Review: Leeds Festival 2011 feat. That’s not to say subsequent albums don’t have their moments, and certainly tracks such as ‘Reptilia’, ‘Losing Control’, ’Juicebox’ and ‘Under Cover Of Darkness’ comfortably stand alongside anything from the debut, but the setlist is also a reminder that plenty more have been long since discarded to the scrapheap, unlikely to see the light of day again. The festival programme was topped by My Chemical Romance, who had a very ‘special guest’ in the form of Brian May from Queen who brought the show to a momentous end. And so for Pulp who, from behind the shelter of a vast black veil, emerge to ‘Do You Remember The First Time?’, fittingly one of the singles which first set them free from obscurity and on their way to dominance in the Nineties, as ‘His N Hers’ became one of the most  acclaimed releases of 1994, losing out on that year’s Mercury Music Prize to M People – proof, if ever it’s needed, that critics can sometimes get it very, very wrong. A full list of all the artists playing the major stages at Reading and Leeds. Opening with ‘One Step Beyond’ and ‘Embarrassment’, those ceasing the opportunity to trot out the ‘Madness dance’ in a bid to warm an increasingly cold afternoon are immediately satisfied, but much attention begins to wane as the band launch into 20 minutes of lesser-known material. Before a note is played, the LA collective already stand out from the crowd, if not for frontman Alex Ebert’s wild facial hair and white robes (try to imagine Jesus if he’d packed in the religion and decided to tour Jerusalem’s late night bars instead), then for the eponymous hero of their band name, who was apparently ‘sent down to Earth to kinda heal and save mankind, but he kept getting distracted by girls and falling in love.’.
