Pulp – different class?

17 Jun

I adore Pulp, they’re pretty much my favourite band of all time. I like how they sound and what they’re about. I don’t much care for the political/social undertones that people pin on them, I just like the honest and poetic storytelling that Pulp so excel at. Which is why I found this article in The Guardian a bit irksome.

And then I saw this ad on Facebook:

Despite being strongly opposed to the concept of selling out (I don’t believe it exists), using someone so cynically to sell something so cynical seems a bit, well, base.

I wonder what our Jarvis thinks about this?

    Well !It’s called Wireless Baclaycard not the Hop Farm Festival. Does Jarvis even know what a facebook is? He was on live twitter weeks ago and he’s like our parents trying to figure out how to operate a computer. He was always exceeding in character limit, pretty hilarious stuff.
