Thursday, May 31st, 2012


Here’s some great shots of people (and a couple of dogs) queueing up to see The Beat Is The Law screening in Spain (with Spanish subtitles) at the wonderful Primavera Sound Festival, Barcelona on Monday 28th May.
For those Spanish speaking, here is a bit of explanation of the film in Spanish:  “The Beat is the Law” cuenta el viaje de Pulp desde las profundidades industriales más oscuras de Sheffield, a través de los turbulentos años 80′s de Margaret Thatcher, hasta llegar a la cima del pop.
Pulp played at this festival last year and Richard Hawley will be playing at Primavera this year, continuing the Sheffield music/Spain connection.
