That's Jarvis solo, Pulp split up a few years earlier.

It was Jarvis and Steve. He other members were Phil and Johnny from Radiohead, Jason Buckle from "All seeing I" and Steve Claydon from Add N to (X).

Jarvis has had solo cameos in a couple of Wes Anderson films : Fantastic Mr. Fox and the upcoming French Dispatch.

Of course there's Strummer's relatively substantial role in Alex Cox's Straight to Hell. Not exactly naff but not a great film either.

He also has a role in one of the segments of Mystery Train, which I haven't seen in a long time, but seem to recall him being an arsehole and accidentally shooting Steve Buscemi.

The Clash have a very brief cameo in The King Of Comedy too.

Ian Brown is in one as well but he is not in the slightest bit cool

Lol, thanks for the reminder of him stirring his tea with magic like a cunt.

In the Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas starring film Tough Guys you get to see Hillel Slovak-era RHCP play as themselves to be the cool modern sounding band that Kirk Douglas dances to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRsj3YjwGg0

Never listened to anything pre-John Frusciante but if it all sounds like what's in that clip they must've been terrrrrrrible.
