Jarvis Cocker has dismissed out of hand reports of an imminent Pulp reunion.
The rumours began to circulate after bassist Steve Mackay, guitarist Richard Hawley and keyboard player Candida Doyle joined Cocker at one of his solo shows last year. But despite recent word of a duet with The Gossip's Beth Ditto, it would seem that thankfully we haven't lost Cocker to sentimentality just yet.
"Hell would have to freeze over first! No, I don't know. The members of the group are all in touch with each other and all friendly, there have been no deaths that I know of.
"So there is no barrier other than the fact that at the moment I can't really see a point," Cocker continued. "If it was to seem like the right thing to do then there's no reason why not, but I am certainly not planning it at the moment."
