Russell Senior is a man too smart to have ever been a pop star. And Pulp were too odd a band ever to have become so big. But we can only be grateful that he was, and they did – and that Freak Out the Squares tells the story in Russell’ s inimitable, entertaining and fascinating way.

The first account of life inside Pulp, Freak Out the Squares recounts the band’ s origins in Sheffield to their glory days at the height of Britpop, revealing the story behind the anthem of a generation, “ Common People” . The book gives a glimpse into the world of Britpop luminaries such as Blur, Elastica and Suede and charts Pulp’ s 2011 reunion tour, which culminated in a triumphant Glastonbury performance.

  Freak Out the Squares is Russell’ s exceptionally witty, unusual and enlightening account of the heady time of being a key member of Britpop’ s best-loved and most enduringly relevant band.

Russell Senior was the lead guitarist and violinist of Brit-Pop band Pulp, and co-wrote the seminal anthem of the 1990s - Common People.
