Storyline

Glastonbury Festival, 1995: The Stone Roses pull out of their headline set after a mountain bike accident and Rod Stewart is unavailable. As last minute replacements, Pulp take to the stage to face 80,000 people. They deliver a set regarded as one of the best in the festival's history and are catapulted to the forefront of the Britpop movement-an achievement that ten years earlier seemed like an impossible dream. Made with the full cooperation of Pulp, The Beat is the Law brings together original interviews, performances, promos, newly unearthed live footage and home videos to tell the story of Pulp and their contemporaries' journey from the darkest industrial depths of Sheffield to the pinnacle of pop via the consciousness-raising techno/house of Warp Records. Featuring original interviews with Pulp's Jarvis Cocker, Russell Senior, Candida Doyle and Nick Banks, plus Richard Hawley (Longpigs), Mark Brydon (Chakk/FON/Moloko), Rob Gordon (FON/Warp), Adi Newton (Clock DVA) and many more!
