Video: Pulp performs ‘Common People,’ ‘Like a Friend’ on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’

The reunited Pulp kicked off its first trip to the U.S. since 1998 with a performance on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” last night, trotting out Britpop national anthem “Common People” for broadcast and then playing “Like a Friend” — the band’s contribution to the soundtrack of the 1998 film version of “Great Expectations” — for the show’s website.

Both clips are posted above.

The band plays sold-out shows at Radio City Music Hall in New York City tonight and Wednesday before heading west for a pair of performances at the two-weekend Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival and two other shows in California. See full dates below.

  1. The only thing that would be cooler would be if Pulp jammed with The Roots!

  2. Joey Joe Jo

    Freakin’ Awesome!

  3. Holy crap that was incredibly good. Blur would be wise to take a few pointers from Jarvis & Co., especially after that train-wreck of a performance on The Brits.

  4. Nice, love Common People. Motiv 8 mixes are great.
