Various Notes:
  • When the first Different Class single, Common People, was released, it entered the charts at number two selling 70,000 copies within a week.
  • In its second week, Common People remained at the number two spot while Michael Jackson's new single, 'Scream', came in at number three.
  • Common People's storyline (greek girl wanting to move in, etc) was true except that the girl didn't want to sleep with Jarvis.
  • The term "mis-shapes" was taken from pieces of chocolate which weren't shaped correctly, so they get sold wholesale - even though they taste just as good.
  • There was an advanced order of 180,000 for the Mis-Shapes/Sorted For E's And Wizz single.
  • The sleeve for Sorted Out For E's And Wizz was banned due to an origami diagram showing how to fold a speed wrap. The Daily Mirror put "BAN THIS SICK STUNT: Chart stars sell CD with DIY kids' drugs guide" on the cover of their 20 September edition.
  • Tabloids tried to get pictures of Pulp accepting drugs from kids to create controversy.
  • Mark Webber became an official member.
  • The title of this album had a double meaning, it was a phrase used in Sheffield to denote top quality and it was also referring to the class system, which is a major theme on this album.
  • Something Changed was written just after the release of It.
  • The guitar riff in Disco 2000 was nicked from Laura Branigan's 'Gloria'. The girl in Disco 2000 was originally named Gloria, but Pulp changed it so they wouldn't have to pay royalties.
  • The Fountain that's mentioned in Disco 2000 is some sort of pub located in Sheffield, I believe.
  • A set of chord changes in Live Bed Show is similiar to David Bowie's 'Cygnet Committee'.
  • Bar Italia's title was taken from a late-night cappuccino hang out in Soho.
  • The album sold 301,000 copies in its first week.
  • Singles released:
  • Common People with b-side Underwear
  • Mis-Shapes and Sorted For E's And Wizz with b-side P.T.A.
  • Disco 2000 with b-side Ansaphone
  • Something Changed with b-side Mile End
  • Please understand. We don't want no trouble.
    We just want the right to be different.
    That's all.
