When you think of 90s Britpop rivalry, three bands come to mind: Blur, Oasis and Pulp. Although Pulp has been around for more than a decade since they've been recognized commercially, many people think they are 90s band. Their first single, Masters Of The Universe, was released in 1982.

The Babies 12" on the picture is their first release of the particular song. This was released under the indie label Gift in 1992. They've re-released it with a slightly different arrangement as part of their 1994 album His 'n' Hers. Personally, the original version is better than the later. It's more raw and edgy.

The picture-sleeved Motiv 8 mix of both Common People and Disco 2000 are very hard to find. They've made very limited copy of those. That solves the mystery why the promo-sleeve versions are the ones circulating on record stores.

On pictures:

1. Babies
2. Common People (Motiv 8 Mix)
2. Disco 2000 (Motiv 8 Discoid Mix)
