Part of a recent mini wave of Britpop exponents to wash up on these shores lately (Suede were here most recently, playing at Planeta Terra) the Sheffield combo Pulp plays at Via Funchal, one of our favourite large live venues, following gigs in Buenos Aires and Santiago.

Led by frontman Jarvis Cocker, the band chronicled the minutiae and anxieties of modern life in the 1990s, adroitly weaving universal tales of sex, loneliness and – as in its biggest hit, the acerbic-yet-anthemic 'Common People' – class. That single propelled Pulp into the UK mainstream, but fame took its toll (as recounted on its uneasy 1998 album, This Is Hardcore), and the group disbanded in 2002. Still, its decision to reunite after nearly a decade doesn’t feel forced: to judge by video clips of appearances across Europe in 2011, the band is in fine form, with Cocker as charismatic as ever.
