Nick Banks (born Nicholas David Banks, 28 July 1965, Rotherham, West Riding of Yorkshire) is the English drummer in the British band, Pulp.[1] He lives in Sheffield with his wife Sarah and two children. He is the nephew of Gordon Banks, goalkeeper of the 1966 FIFA World Cup winning England squad, and is related by marriage to former BBC 6 Music radio presenter Vic McGlynn, and journalist and writer Victoria Segal.

Nick started playing drums aged 14 and was inspired by Paul Cook from the Sex Pistols and Blondie's Clem Burke.[2]

In their early years he saw many of Pulp's performances in Sheffield and eventually joined the group in 1986.[3] He joined because they were his favourite band.[4]

Banks also played drums in a Sheffield-based band called Pollinates.

He currently runs the family business 'Banks Pottery'.
