Sleeve notes

Well do you?
And why did you choose them?
Was it the drink or the time of year
or the position of the planets?

Or was it just their hair?

Reviews

NME, 19th March 1994:

Sexual favours single of the week

All things have their place. First adolescent zip fumblings; first secret drug voyages; the first time you realise that after the first time, the whole process may never be as good again.

Pulp are about to experience their first hit single. Not the glossy, synthetic thrill of 'Lip Gloss' (marvellous as it was) but a success that, somewhere in the pop world will make them Top Five idols, the stuff of sleek, white lumousines and (deliberately cheap) plastic sunglasses.

Jarvis is enquiring after our sexual debuts here, but the noise and confusion – the, erm, 'With Or Without You' U2 atmospherics – make this something more splendid than even that. Glam rock stops and glitterbeat synths zoom all over it. That the thrill it provides may only last as long as it takes Jarvis to yelp "I don't care if you screw him!" seems to be the point. After all, falling in lust with lust is never that difficult. The 'Lexicon Of Love' updated.
