So It Started There: From Punk to Pulp

Nick Banks

This event is sold out

Nick Banks is the timekeeper in iconic band Pulp.  Nick recounts his personal and musical journey through the genres, as a punk, then a goth: how it all started when he was inspired to pick up the sticks by Sex Pistols drummer, Paul Cook. He describes his growth as a musician, the trials of chasing success in the music industry, touring triumphs and horrors, the process of writing and recording their most famous albums and Pulp’s journey from relative obscurity to becoming a global sensation.

“…. Do you remember the first time? Nick does. Great stuff.” – Jarvis Cocker
