Please deliver us from matching sweatshirt and 'Chicken In The Rough', from evenings sat
on couple row admiring the flock, from Sundays spent parading the aisles of Meadowhall.
We don't want to live like this. It's bad for our health. Do something soon or it's curtains.
(Just as long as they match with the walls and the sofa)

Various Notes:
  • Part of the video for Razzmatazz was shot inside The Ideal, a favorite hotel of songwriter, Jacques Brel (an inspiration of Jarvis'). The rest inculded footage from the Paris district, La Pigalle, and London's Sunset Street club in Soho.
  • Joyriders was inspired by a couple of 14 year olds who hot-wired Jarvis' Hillman Imp after it broke down. Meanwhile, Jarvis had to sit in their stolen Ford and listen to techno tapes.
  • She's A Lady borrows from Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive".
  • There's been some discussion over whether Pink Glove refers to a diaphragm. But the song's title was inspired by one of Candida's pink gloves, giving Jarvis the idea of a woman who keeps a man by wearing sexy accessories. Perhaps it has a double meaning.
  • The fire extinguisher was used to making a pinging sound (they didn't actually spray it)
  • The cover art was an airbrush by Philip Castle who did the original poster for the acclaimed Kubrick film, A Clockwork Orange.
  • Do You Remember The First Time?, a tale about virginity loss, had an accompanying documentary in which the band members confessed about how they gave it up.
  • Nick Banks - lost his in a loft conversion on some orange cushions.
  • Jarvis Cocker - in Weston Park in Sheffield when he was 19 with another virgin
  • Candida Doyle - to her boyfriend and then bandmate, Peter Mansell
  • Steve Mackey - to a blonde woman who was 9 years older than him
  • Russell Senior - to his friend's girlfriend by mistake - he rolled over onto the wrong girl
