Pulp 'warming up nicely for Isle of Wight Festival'

Isle of Wight Festival headliner Pulp have been praised for a recent show that was a warm-up for their performance at the event.

Jarvis Cocker and the rest of the Sheffield band played at the Parc Del Forum in Barcelona as part of their comeback after many years out of the spotlight.

Music critic Charlotte Pattullo, writing for the Observer, was full of praise for the indie act's show at the Primavera Sound festival, stating that the singer has an "imposing stage presence".

The journalist added that Cocker even introduced a marriage proposal at the front of the stage in the middle of the band's set.

"Pulp don't promise any new songs and there are no plans to tour: they are simply a band having fun doing what they want to do," she said.

The Sheffield group are scheduled to play on the Saturday night (June 11th 2011) of the Isle of Wight Festival, while Foo Fighters, Kasabian and Kings of Leon are some of the other major acts on the bill.
