All words by Jarvis Cocker
All Music by Pulp.

This album comprises the three singles released by Pulp on Sheffield's
Gift Records during 1992/93. It is intended as an introduction to the group for those
who may have missed these songs the first time around. Welcome.

Various Notes:
  • It was this collection of songs that showed Jarvis' definite transition from concentrating on freaks and oddities to concentrating on the mundane side of life. This transition was inspired by the American novelist/journalist, Tom Wolfe.
  • The Inside Susan story was supposed to "follow Susan from Rotherham puberty through wild teenage yeras in Sheffield to her eventual marriage and settling down somewhere on the outskirts of London".
  • 59 Lyndhurst Grove was inspired by a party Jarvis attended in a fancy part of Camberwall.
  • "Susan" was a combination of two girls Jarvis had known.
  • 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.
  • Russell had begun wearing sunglasses because of his odd, staring eyes and would often wear glitter eyeshadow as well.
  • Razzmatazz became Pulp's third Melody Maker Single Of The Week in a row.
  • The songs showed Jarvis' technique of writing from first hand experiences. One of his girlfriends would hit him for being too personal in his songs.
  • The compilation made it into the Top 30 album chart.
  • Although the time of these releases introduced Pulp to musical succeess, Jarvis' favorite memory from this period was "sexual activity in St. Paul's Cathedral".
