SHEFFIELD favourites Pulp played their first UK show in a decade as the reformed band played the Isle of Wight Festival.

Jarvis Cocker and the gang thrilled the large crowd with a set based largely on their two mid-90s breakthrough albums His’n’Hers and Different Class.

Opening with Do You Remember The First Time, other featured favourites included Disco 2000, Sorted For Es and Wizz and Babies.

Also included were This Is Hardcore, Sunrise, Pink Glove and Feeling Called Love.

A bearded Jarvis dispensed Isle of Wight-related trivia between tunes, including a digression about Victorian poet Lord Tennyson, who lived locally.

And of set closer Common People, he joked: “I hear this was the first dance at the Royal Wedding a couple of months ago.”

The band are due to play a series of festivals, including Leeds at the end of August.
