In an interview with 6 Music Jarvis Cocker has revealed that Pulp may not have disappeared forever, describing the current situation as a period of â€˜hibernationâ€™.
The band havenâ€™t released an album since 2001â€™s â€˜We Love Lifeâ€™ and Cocker is currently living in Paris but speaking to Marc Riley he revealed heâ€™s not ruling out anything.
Asked if the band had split for good he said: "We're far too lazy for that kind of dramatic-ness. Pulp, as I'm sure you kind of know, has undergone many periods of hibernation and stuff. I don't know whether we'll do anything again.â€
"I've been doing Pulp since I was 15 years old and I'm now a 41 year old man. Even though we've never released that many records I was always doing it and I just thought 'I'll try summat else'.â€
"I've been writing some songs. When I've got enough ones that I think are fit for human consumption then I'll try and decide what to do with them.â€
"The main thing that I've done recently is to write some songs for the Harry Potter film, but that's just a shameless effort to try and ingratiate myself with kids."
â€˜Help the Agedâ€™, songs for kids â€“ what about the rest of us Jarvis, what about us!
