Irish rockers The Script have blasted Jarvis Cocker's Pulp after both bands agreed to play this summer's T in the Park in Scotland.

Script singer Danny O'Donoghue says Pulp have reformed purely to cash in on nostalgia. “I am not a big Pulp fan. Jarvis Cocky. I'm not into him at all,” says O’Donoghue. “I don't like his style. I don't like his music. I won't be steering clear of him, but he should be steering clear of me.

“I have watched his career. I'd like to think Pulp are coming out with a new album or that he wants to really do a job in the music industry, but I am sure they will release a single, do a tour, make their money and go home. The audacity of Jarvis Cocker to think he is important enough for people to give a damn what he thinks.”
