‘This Is Hardcore’ was the title track from Pulp’s chart-topping album of the same name.
With a sleeve Art-Directed by legendary Factory Records Designer Peter Saville, the record was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and led Nick Hornby to hail the band’s frontman Jarvis Cocker to be "England's unofficial poet laureate”.
Released in 1998 on Island Records, the band described it as a "creepy, profoundly uneasy-listening” song about fame, which according to The Guardian was "about power, narcissism, performance and ego”, with Rolling Stone Magazine adding that “Desperation never sounded quite so entertaining”.
Our version of this Pulp classic replays the eerie piano melody from the heart of the song - so if you want it bad and if you want it now…
This Music Box is exactly what you should do for an encore!
