I never saw anything get thrown at Massive Attack, but I'm sure it happened. I think dude from Crowded House got hit with a bottle from Rage fans
That Massive Attack set is still one of my favorites... But on the bright side, it's true, The Black Keys' fans are not like Tool's and Rage Against the Machine's fans. I think the worst they'd do is chat through Pulp's set. They're not going to heckle.
watJarvis Cocker, lead singer of Pulp, will play live on the Whitney Museum's fourth floor, according to a source with knowledge of the event. The British musician will perform Apr. 5–8 with his side project, Relaxed Muscle, alongside Michael Clark's dance company, organized as part of the Whitney Biennial.
Cocker formed Relaxed Muscle in 2002, following Pulp's break up. He performs as "Darren Spooner," using a violent performance style and over-the-top goth costumes and make-up. The group has maintained a relatively low profile since their sole album release in 2003.

Do You Remember the First Time?
Sorted for E's & Wizz
The Birds In Your Garden
Bad Cover Version
Like a Friend
This Is Hardcore
(With Saskia Cocker)
Good set tonight - strings for This is Hardcore, Richard Hawley from Like A Friend onwards, My Lighthouse played for the first time in nearly 30 years. The show was faultless. The sound is always amazing in the Royal Albert Hall.
Great shots. I need, need, NEED to hear Like a Friend in San Francisco.
I really hope that they play that at Coachella
Electric Picnic was a life changing event. I was prepared to park myself 100 feet from the front at 2pm waiting for Pulp to come on at 1030pm. But The people there were so easy going that I was comfortable enough to leave my spot, get some booze (to keep warm), walk around, come back at 8pm and politely maneuver my way up to the front row right before Underworld.
My savings account is still recovering though...very slowly now that I am also going to Pomona and Kasabian in addition to Coachella.
LIKE A FRIEND, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, Expectations have been raised. Damn!
Some solid representation from We Love Life for only a 16 song set. Like A Friend is pretty cool though I can't image they would play it at Coachella. It'll have to be at one of their own gigs, hopefully.
Are there any new Pulp songs on the horizon?
It took us long enough to relearn the old songs, so we’ll have to see about that. But I’ve got ideas. I keep my little notebook, I’ve always got that with me [fishes a small notepad titled ‘Stuff + Nonsense’ from his jacket]. Hopefully there’s more stuff than nonsense in there.
At this point, I don't care what they play. I'm just stoked that they are playing. It is a total miracle that I'll get to see them two days in a row.
Look for me...I'll be wearing a crochet halter top and a sky blue training bra.
I wonder what questions they will have for their intro, and how the intro will be done. And who will play violin on "Common People"
Since Boourns's vid is gone now, here's a whole slew of great ones from the other night:
No, don't, don't cut my hair, Ned loves my hair.
Besides the Royal Albert Hall gig, "Like a Friend" only surfaced at the two headlining shows in Australia and Glastonbury, which was a rather unusual festival setlist since it was a "we're playing a secret set for free because it's Glasto, so let's have fun with it" kind of deal.
I was listening to Metronomy in my Coachella research (they're pretty cool), and they have a song called "The Look" that has a keyboard kinda doing the chorus from "F.E.E.L.I.N.G.C.A.L.L.E.D.L.O.V.E." throughout the song.
Like, you can sing the chorus from the Pulp song over their song.
Like A Friend would be amazing at Coachella. I'd much prefer that than I Spy which seems to be a current festival staple.
Most of all I would like Help The Aged, they played it once last year in Greece at a festival... so there is about a 1% chance.
Like A Friend, Help The Aged or Live Bed Show. One of those would have me content. All of those would destroy me with mirth
The show in Greece wasn't a festival appearance, but a proper gig. I want all three in San Francisco, especially Like a Friend.
They've been mixing it up a lot more than I expected. Even Mile End got played a couple times.
I know I heard it at Primavera, but Pink Glove is too good of a song to fade away. Maybe they bring it back at one of the New York shows.

hoping for 'Dishes' at the Pomona show. The "and the earth is where we are" going into the star picking solo and emotive finale "aren't you happy just to be alive?...got no cross to bare tonight". Such an incredible song (por favor, pretty please, etc).
Speaking of Jesus, good Good Friday all.
hey this common people song is pretty kewl
Am I the only one that prefers His N' Hers to Different Class?
