All the songs were very much a band effort I think; in that documentary about Pulp, Cocker plays the chords on a casio and it sounds like shit! The producer Chris Thomas had a huge input as well i think.I'm about 4 listens in on this. I'm about at the point where I want to listen on random because my attention drops towards then end so those songs aren't getting a fair listen.
It seems to me that Jarvis gets all the credit but the band deserve as much attention. Common People would have died a death in another bands hands. The energy level of that tune just builds and builds. I don't know of any other "indie" band that "rocked that hard". Mis-Shapes has it too.
I had this on at breakfast in study mode. Herself walks in during Common People and within 10 seconds we're dancing and blinking very quickly pretending we're at Dazed. Unable to resist, the 16yr old joined in. "who's this?" he said.
