Known colloquially as “the Pulp documentary”, Eve Wood’s The Beat Is the Law: Fanfare for the Common People is a history of the amazing Sheffield music scene, from early 80′s post-punk through the globe-conquering house boom and into Britpop. With Pulp as the through-line, the film also delves into the political and economic realities underlying the music, culminating with Pulp’s underdog triumph at the 1995 Glastonbury Festival, where as last minute replacement headliners, Pulp deliver a set ‘regarded as one of the best in the festival’s history’ climaxing with the era-defining song.
