Single of the Week

Hold the front page! Stop the presses! This is what I thought working for the NME would be like. At the fag end of a very ordinary singles column, we grudgingly sling on one last disc... and it is fantastic! Do you hear me, you drop-outs! Fantastic! A throbbing ferment of night-club soul and teen opera. World Of Twist play the theme from Shaft with Cathal Coughlan on vocals. Mysterious and grand. Maybe we could have done without the rude noises, but let's not carp. Steve Lamacq tells me that this is the worst song in their set. Which means that Pulp are the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world. I think.

Unknown publication:

Interesting. After a long spoken intro, the vocalist bears his soul in a chorus which wouldn't look out of place on a Julian Cope album. It was the last thing I expected, and after a second play I came to the conclusion that I really rather liked this. The B-Side is bloody tedious though. Fire continue to produce some of the funniest press releases around, in case you were interested. (AO)

Unknown publication:

I suspect Pulp are Yello fans. This starts like a Bernard Herrman passage for Alfred Hitchcock with a guiltily obsessive spoken intro over a maelstrom of panicky fake strings. Almost manic in a grainy monochrome Yorkshire way.
