成立於1978年的pulp(果醬),主唱Javis Cooker 當時才15歲。然而他們的音樂路不是那麼順利,浮浮沈沈了好一陣子 團員更替直到近90年代才確定。95年推出different class這張經典專輯,帶著致命單曲common people及disco 2000順利攻佔樂迷的心 也使他們的音樂地位受到肯定。

主唱cocker非常擅長描寫小人物對於社會的不滿及內心孤寂的心情,歌詞處處一針見血。歌詞敘述了一個男人淡淡憂傷的小故事,帶著諷刺口吻的表白,無奈感和期待落空包在一起,好像假裝不經意的提起,心裡卻又酸的很。第一次聽DISCO 2000,只覺得簡單復古的旋律讓人搖擺,帶人回到古早的disco舞池裡面。pulp簡單復古的旋律帶點disco舞廳的感覺,藉著音樂彷彿又回到最初欣賞英搖的感動!
