Pulp are an English band from Sheffield, South Yorkshire. The lead singer, Jarvis Cocker, started the band in 1978. For a long time, Cocker found life as a musician hard. However, in 1994, he and his band became famous when their album called his "His and Hers" became popular in the United Kingdom. They had three more albums and a number of singles before the band split up in 2001.
