Jarvis Cocker 'anxious' over Pulp comeback

Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker has said that he is feeling anxious ahead of the band's reunion this summer.

They are entertaining fans on short breaks through a number of festivals later this year having been on a nine-year hiatus.

Speaking to BBC 6 Music, Cocker said that he has been experiencing "anxiety dreams" where he turned up late for performances.

Guitarist Mark Webber said that the death of a close friend was the stimulus for finally getting back on stage.

"I always thought we'd do something together again eventually, but when he died, I realised [we] should maybe grasp that opportunity."

Cocker added that the death "had a lot to do with it", stating that "you suddenly realise you can't take things for granted".

Pulp will be appearing at Wireless 2011 in London's Hyde Park on Sunday July 3rd, with further gigs planned for T in the Park, and the Reading and Leeds festivals.
