Friday, 4th May – We Love Life Deluxe Day

Friday, 4th May, is an unofficial 'day of action' in order to drum up interest in a reissued, 'deluxe' version of Pulp's final album, 'We Love Life'.

The songs which originally appeared on the critically acclaimed album only tell half the story of the busy songwriting and recording period which the group engaged in between 1999 and 2001 under various producers, including Walker Brothers legend Scott and long time Pulp/Pink Floyd/Beatles producer Chris Thomas.

Universal Music Group, in close collaboration with the group, issued two disc deluxe versions of Pulp's earlier albums His 'n' Hers, Different Class and This is Hardcore in 2006, offering up to the world the delights of songs such as Can I Have My Balls Back Please, Modern Marriage, The Boss... and Nick Cave fronting the band on a 'pub rock' version of Disco 2000.

Songs from the We Love Life sessions such as Cuckoo Song, The Quiet Revolution and Grandfather's Nursery have been leaked over the years to much acclaim from fans, but oddities such as The Performance of a Lifetime, M'Lady, St. Just and Medieval Owl have defiantly remained in the vaults.

Fans are encouraged to sign a petition to express interest in a We Love Life 'deluxe' edition.

There is also a Facebook page at and a Twitter account.
