I took an air-rifle, shot a Magpie to the ground
And it died without a sound
Your skin so pale against the fallen Autumn leaves
And no-one saw us but the trees

    this is one of the few things i love about britain, such a complex cocktail of emotions and states here..kind of wistful, very embittered, angry, passionate, disgusted, upset and mournful. one of my favourite bands, i love pulp.

    One of the last IMPORTANT british groups to have disappeared ...What a big loss . We love life , wonderful swansong. This album sounds like a big renonciation , the same way as the "Mummer" of XTC . Same disanchanted atmosphere , vegetal inspiration ...

    One of their best, definitely, which is saying a lot for a band like Pulp! A good way to go out.
