Uncommon - an essay on Pulp, is out tomorrow, on Zero Books - it's the pink one at the end just above. This article has a lot of the themes from it summarised, and an extract from the book, on the subject of 'Mis-Shapes', up at Up Close And Personal. and Richard King's Domino Radio show has me rambling about Pulp and playing their particularly outre numbers, followed by Dan Hancox saying much more important things about grime and student protest and then returning to filth via 'Ramping Shop'. The first review of it is, as ever, in 3:AM.
Mercifully not on the subject of Pulp, on the subject of Southampton council workers' co-ordinated strike - a (rare) pleasure to feel proud of the city.
