Pulp/Colenso Parade: 100 Club, London

Push, Melody Maker, 13 December 1986

COURAGE IS the key word. Pulp throw out sudden drum rumbles and savage violin wails, lazy guitar twiddles and keyboard stabs, all wrapped around vocals which range from a mumble to a scream. It's a warped cabaret of psychedelia, confusing when proper attention is not paid.

Total word count of piece: 211
