Pulp: Pulpintro — The Gift Recordings
David Cavanagh, Select, December 1993
15 YEARS IN THE MAKING, yet Pulp's first "proper" LP is only a bits-and-bats package.
For a band that's been going for 15 years, it's strange that Pulp have not released a proper album yet. An oversight worth mentioning, really. A blemish, even. Just the Fire cash-in Separations and some singles. On Valentine's Day 1994 their official debut album is released. Anticipating that historic moment. Pulpintro wraps up the three singles (plus B-sides) they made for the Sheffield independent Gift last year and this: 'OU', Babies' and 'Razzmatazz'.
