about

Record Store Day 2015 release - Pulp's 1983 debut 'It' was released as part of Fire's Embers reissues series in February 2012. Newly re-mastered and repackaged, it comes complete with additional bonus material and brand new liner-notes by Everett True.

As one of their most honest recordings, It captures a band at the very beginning of their startling career. It is a gentle, mainly acoustic album, hinting at the musical directions Pulp would later pursue. The record touches on the majestic, theatrical ballads of Scott Walker as well as the stark, folky song-poems of Leonard Cohen. Produced by a young band in the process of pinpointing their direction, the album has aged beautifully into a charming collection.<br><br>The reissue features 4 Bonus tracks including single version of 'My Lighthouse', an alternative mix of 'Blue Girls', as well as the previously unreleased 'Sink Or Swim' and 'Please Don't Worry' from Pulp's John Peel session in 1981.
