This is the programme for the Heineken Music Festival at Roundhay Park, Leeds, on 22 July 1995, at which Pulp headlined, though there was a pretty good undercard, including Sleeper, Skunk Anansie and a very early Catatonia. Pulp were fantastic, and it was one of the last big shows where I forced my way to the front of the crowd.

These are a flyer and ticket for the Japan Tour 1998. The concert at Akasaka Blitz, Tokyo, on 18 September 1998, was a bit disappointing, as Jarvis Cocker had become quite a lot darker since the heady days of Britpop in 1995.

This is a flyer for a 'Talk Event' at HMV in Shibuya, Tokyo, on 20 September 1998, which I attended. It was an odd event, with lots of inane questions, including one asking what Cocker had done on his birthday, which had fallen a couple of days before. He answered that they'd travelled to Hakone and seen the "Smoking Mountain," aka Owakudani, Hakone, a volcanic hillside that is a popular tourist attraction where it appears that the mountain is belching out smoke.
