I suspect that if I'd been fifteen or so when they hit, I'd've thought they were the bee's knees for a while. As it was, I found their whole condescending, smirky, too-cool-to-actually-play-or-sing-or-write-properly shtick tiresome.

I recall a Ben Is Dead review with pictures of their two drummers, and one of them was visibly falling asleep. If it'd not interesting enough for the drummer to stay awak while playing it, forget it.

Didn't recognize either band from the photos.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

It's understandable, but I think Pulp gets way more love than they deserve on here.
Don't fake the funk on a nasty dunk!

Neither are as good as Pavlov's Dog or Parliament but Pulp are simply cracking at times. I'd take Pink Military (Stand Alone) over Pavement any day too.

I'll go with Pulp. Today, their music sounds rather thin, but in the mid 90s they meant everything to me, and I saw them live a number of times. Different Class has great lyrics.

Pavement's slacker US indie stuff is listenable, but inessential. Doesn't seem to care enough.
