Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker, ever the performer, has yet another platform on which to gyrate his hips and growl seductively: New Zealand filmmaker Florian Habicht (Love Story) has directed the upcoming film Pulp: A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets.
In 2012, Pulp came together for a small handful of reunion concerts, ending in December in its hometown of Sheffield, England. Although the film ostensibly centers on this final concert, any of fan of Pulp will recognize the “Common People” reference in the movie title; early reviews of the film suggest it devotes some time toward exploring the band’s old industrial hometown that inspired the now-famous lyrics about lying in bed, watching roaches climb the wall, living like common people do.
The film screened at SXSW this year, and it opens theatrically in the U.K. and Ireland next week. If you’re in the U.K. you might want to check out the live satellite Q&A with the band on June 7. [via Consequence Of Sound]
