Pulp Special Edition 2 dvd £8.99 Sainsburys

Found 14th Jul 2014
Just picked this up from my local Sainsburys, also available online. Double dvd version. I went to this gig, and it truly was a magical gig.

Product Description

PULP found fame on the world stage in the 1990s with anthems including 'Common People', 'Disco 2000', and 'Babies'. In 2012 they returned to their hometown for what could be their last UK concert. Footage of their phenomenal live shows exclusive to this film and the band also share their thoughts on fame, love, mortality & car maintenance. Director Florian Habicht (Love Story) weaves together these elements with dream-like tableaux featuring the people and the city of Sheffield.

Thanks what a great deal love PULP!!

I'm sure it's the real deal but the actual film is called "Pulp - A Film About Life Death and Supermarkets" so that online entry looks slightly barren. It's not really a live DVD either, there is some footage from the concert in Sheffield in December 2012 but generally it's about the build up to the concert with interviews from people both connected to the band (including all members of Pulp) and just random fans/people of Sheffield as the New Zealand director wanders about trying to get a feel for the background of the band (and probably to try to discover their northern roots).

Comment from Amazon

"In December 2012, Pulp returned to Sheffield to play what was ostensibly their last ever gig. As we entered the Arena, there were photocopied posters on the walls announcing that the gig was being recorded. This is not the film of the gig, but is the film of how we all got there.

The film is part history of the band, part love letter from Jarvis to Sheffield, and part concert video. There aren't many songs, and none of them are reproduced in their entirety (except a handful as extras), but the clips that do exist are terrific - "Common People", "This Is Hardcore", and the sublime "Sunrise". If you're buying it hoping to find a concert video though, don't bother.

What you will get are a number of interviews with the band, some of the people around Sheffield, and fans who have travelled to see the film (some from half a globe away). There are a lot of shots of Sheffield scenery, but a PR clip produced to highlight Sheffield as a tourist destination this is most certainly not. It's real Sheffield people in real Sheffield scenery; it's Pulp's Sheffield.

It's not what I was expecting, but it's warm, funny, interesting, wonderfully shot and expertly put together, with love."
