See Pulp Sass Out ‘After You’ on James Murphy-Assisted Single

Pulp’s almost forgotten We Love Life-era B-side, “After You,” has been experiencing an astounding second life. When we first heard the thing, we noted that it offered a glut of “reasons to keep coming back for more,” but that was before we learned that the disco-blasted track had been fittingly produced by LCD Soundsystem glitter-guru James Murphy. Now, 12 years on from the last Pulp album and sessions that birthed the song’s demo, “After You” is up on iTunes. Meanwhile, for immediate gratification (since this is Pulp we’re talking about here), you can watch Jarvis Cocker and co. perform the new old one on England’s The Jonathan Ross Show Saturday night — their first TV appearance (despite what the host says) since the last one. If you haven’t seen Pulp do their thing of late (on a cruise, say, or in a field), be sure to relish in Cocker’s supreme sass and moves that may best be described as sexual kung fu. Enjoy.
