An Evening with Nick Banks

Join us for an entertaining evening with drummer of Pulp, Nick Banks, as he discusses his memoir ‘So It Started There’. Written with warmth, humour and inimitable northern charm, Nick tells all. And with it, tells the story of a band that defined a generation.
 
About the Book
 
‘So It Started There’ chronicles the life and career of drummer Nick Banks, and how he came to be in one of the UK’s most iconic and beloved bands: Pulp. 
 
Beginning with his childhood in Rotherham, Nick recounts his personal and musical journey through the genres, first as a punk, then as a goth: how it all started when he was inspired to pick up the sticks by Sex Pistols drummer, Paul Cook. 
 
Flash forward to the eighties, Nick has been playing in a handful of Sheffield groups and spies an ad from his favourite band, Pulp, in a local club. He pays Jarvis and the gang a visit and the rest is history.
 
From there, Nick describes his growth as a professional drummer and musician, the trials and tribulations of chasing success in the music industry, touring triumphs and horrors, the band’s journey from relative obscurity to becoming a global sensation, and the process of writing and recording their most famous albums.

Reviews

 “Nick Banks is the time-keeper of Pulp, and within these covers are the early times, the good times, the not-so-good times and the WTF times. Do you remember the first time? Nick does. Great stuff.” - Jarvis Cocker
