Pulp, the intellectual wing of the Britpop movement, have said they haven't discussed making a new album.  

The Sheffield band's seventh and last album was 2001's We Love Life.

They reunited in 2011 and 2012 for live shows and this weekend sees the release of Pulp: A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets, a new film documenting their last show together at Sheffield's Motorpoint Arena two years ago.

Speaking to the NME, bassist and producer Steve Mackey said: "I know you're not going to believe this, but we honestly haven't talked about it [making a new album]." 

Asked if Pulp would ever play live again, front man Jarvis Cocker said: "The thing is, the film company think if we say it's the last concert, more people will come to see it, but we're not so sure... we're not sure ourselves. It could be, but it also couldn't... Is that vague enough?"

The band's keyboard player, Belfast-born Candida Doyle added: "We're just not that kind of band. If you step back into that environment where you want to release records, then all these complications step up." 

Pulp: A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets will receive its European premiere in Sheffield this Saturday (June 7) at the City Hall as part of Sheffield Doc Fest 2014. It will also be screened at Dublin's IFI on Saturday, followed by a live Q&A with the band webcast from their hometown.
