Common People Comic

While Jamie Hewlett is best know for creating Tank Girl and all those eclectic Gorillaz characters, very few ever had the pleasure of meeting the rather hip characters he illustrated based on the lyrics of Pulp's Common People. I was recently re-introduced to this little gem, giving a fresh perspective on a time when Mr. Cocker and Co. had the London scene on a string with daft lyrical commentary and an insatiable appetite for all things cool. And yet, two decades later, Cocker's little number on social class still continues to pulse the downtown set, strangely taking the dance floor into another realm of hip with each and every play. Go ahead, bust out the black-rimmed glasses, light up a fag and take her to the supermarket.
