From Punk to Pulp: An evening with Nick Banks

We are delighted to welcome Nick Banks, drummer of beloved Britpop band Pulp, to Deansgate to discuss his new book, So It Started There: From Punk to 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 first 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.

Written with warmth, humour and inimitable northern charm, Nick tells all. And with it, tells the story of a band that defined a generation.

This event will consist of a talk from the author, followed by an audience Q&A and signing.
