The Pulp Frontman Says ‘Common People’ Would be Much Different If It Was Written Today
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 06.05.2014



Speaking to NME, the Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker explained his belief that bands are "posh" now because wealthier people have "something to prove." According to Cocker, the Pulp's single "Common People" would have come out differently if it was written about present-day Britain. Below are some highlights:

Cocker on there not being money left in the industry: "There isn't that magnet of the streets being paved with gold. There's not really any money left in the music industry."

Cocker on bands being posh now: "That's why a lot of bands are posh now, because in a way they've got something to prove: 'I'm not just posh, I've got something to say.' That sounds like I'm being snidey about that, but they've got an impetus. The impetus behind 'Common People' was that this girl thought that people in Hackney or whatever were having a good time. I think now people are trying to gatecrash prince Harry's party – they think rich people are having a good time."

Cocker on everybody wanting ‘bling': "It's obvious that poor people aren't having a good time, because they're too poor. Because of this widening divide, everybody wants bling now. Is that the word, bling?"
