On October 18th, Jarvis Cocker was asked by People.co.uk if there was a possibility that his legendary band, Pulp, would reunite for the upcoming 40th anniversary of the Glasonbury Music Festival. The frontman responded saying the following: “Glastonbury means an awful lot to me, I would love to play there again. We’ve talked about it, there we go, there’ll be a band reunion.
Obviously, these comments proved to be a big deal, and picked up quite a bit of steam over the weekend (see NME‘s headline: “Jarvis Cocker: ‘Pulp could reunite for Glastonbury 2010′”.) Unfortunately, the fun has come and gone and Mr. Cocker has returned to burst everyone’s bubble (via a recent interview with Teletext):
“I can categorically tell Teletext that Pulp have no plans to get back together,” Jarvis says. “Someone asked me if I fancied playing at the 40th anniversary of Glastonbury, I said yes, they twisted that into a ‘Pulp reform’ story. It’s not true.”
Alas, at least we have dreams of Muse and Bon Jovi still alive.
