Pulp: Rock Garden, London

Martin Aston, Melody Maker, 24 May 1986

AN ODDBALL bunch, Pulp. A National Health-spectacles climbing frame inside a second-hand suit with a blissful deep-throated voice like a dark angel or at least Scott Walker; an unsmiling undertaker on second guitar and violin; a drummer who looks like Andy Pandy and a girl behind the keyboards whose face stays perpetually behind one of several cakky pop-art posters dangling from the ceiling.

Total word count of piece: 191
