Our school is just down the road from where the rock band Pulp used to rehearse so we zoomed down to interview their drummer Nick Banks.

Nick has taken over the family business where the band played.

Watch the film.

  • What did Jarvis Cocker say the group “made rattle? in their time?
  • What did Nick’s parents think of Nick being in a band in the early days and how did their opinions change over time? Why do you think they changed their minds about their son and his choice of career?
  • What according to Nick is the weirdest place he ever went to with the band and why?
  • What did Nick think of Michael Jackson at The Brits?
  • What did Jarvis Cocker do at The Brits?
  • What did Nick think of Jarvis’s actions?
  • What did Nick describe as a bit “like Scooby Doo??
  • How did the press react to Jarvis at The Brits?
  • One thing that makes this film quite watchable is its humour. What, if anything, made you laugh in the video?
  • Do you know any celebrities? Would you like to be one yourself? If so, in which realm? If not, why not?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of being famous?
