CHART-topping Irish stars The Script have blasted Jarvis Cocker’s Pulp after both bands agreed to play this summer’s T in the Park.

The Script’s singer-songwriter Danny O’Donoghue, says the Sheffield band have reformed purely to cash in on nostalgia.

O’Donoghue said: “I am not a big Pulp fan. Jarvis Cocky. I’m not into him at all.

“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 Script are making their third T in the Park appearance and will be playing songs from their recent No1 album, Science & Faith.

Not that his views are likely to bother Pulp, who return 17 years after they performed at the first ever T - originally held at Strathclyde Park, Lanarkshire, in 1994.

Cocker, 47, stormed the stage at the Brit awards and shook his bottom at Michael Jackson as he performed Earth Song, in 1996.

O’Donoghue added: “The audacity of Jarvis Cocker to think he is important enough for people to give a damn what he thinks.”

Their T in the Park appearance follows a concert at Glasgow’s SECC on March 21.

Foo Fighters and Blink 182 will also be among the headliners.
