"Someone Like the Moon"

This album will be all of 25 years old next week. Like a lot of things I listened to heavily in the '90s, it hasn't always sounded fresh to me in the years since, but it's sounding pretty damn good to me right now.

CD bonus tracks should not be included in album polls

I agree, that's why I didn't include 'Razzmatazz'!

'Babies' isn't really a bonus track, though. I mean, sure, it wasn't on the vinyl edition, but CD was the primary format when this album was released.

Babies had been a single two years earlier, it's totally an artefact of the CD-gets-an-extra-track-to-justify-costing-$10-more era on His & Hers

Babies or David's Last Summer, though "Jesus it must be great to be stray-ee-yaaaaay-ee-yay-ee-yay-ee-yay-aight" is probably my favourite moment.

I was a relative latecomer to Pulp but I still remember the first time I fell in love with them. It was dancing at Tiswas at Coney Island High in 1997 and they played the title track. I remember thinking omg this is fantastic and immediately went out and bought the album the next day. For that reason alone I'm tempted to vote that but really it's between Babies and Pink Glove for me. AHHHHH. OK, Babies.

Looks like there was a Geir poll from the ilx middle ages with a really unsearchable combo of quote marks in the title:
What's the best track on "His'n'Hers"?
Between Acrylic Afternoons and David's Last Summer for me, my 1/2 in the big Pulp poll. I'll relisten, see where I am with it.

I’ve always loved Pink Glove. Prob the song I listen to most.

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Tuesday, 9 April 2019 10:55 (one week ago) Permalink

My favourite Pulp album.
I got to know it through a cassette copy of my sister's CD, she'd tagged on the Sisters EP at the end, those three songs are of the same high quality as the album tracks - if eligible, I might even have gone for Seconds.

I went for Acrylic Afternoons, which may have everything in it that makes any other of these songs great.

Valentijn, Tuesday, 9 April 2019 13:16 (one week ago) Permalink

I can imagine the Sisters EP tracks would go really well with the rest of the album - apart from 'Babies', they were all recorded at the His 'n' Hers album sessions. I'm guessing they were left off to keep the album at a reasonable length, and also maybe the band felt they weren't amongst the better tracks the band had recorded at the sessions.

I find myself trying to decide between 'Acrylic Afternoons', 'Pink Glove', 'She's a Lady' and 'David's Last Summer', but then I see 'Joyriders', 'Lipgloss' and 'Babies' and just... argh!

Le Baton Rose (Turrican), Tuesday, 9 April 2019 13:28 (one week ago) Permalink

I remember the cover of this album freaking me out slightly when I was younger. Much in the same way as my dad's copy of Stranglers IV. I must have an aversion to highly-chiseled cheek bone shadows

xp, I'm listening to it now. I must have heard all of DC, just not all the way through.

frame casual (dog latin), Tuesday, 9 April 2019 14:57 (one week ago) Permalink

The Sisters EP is probably the most life-changing record I've ever bought, was already obsessed with Babies having only managed to hear it two or three times on the radio, but then to discover that the other three songs were fantastic was quite a discovery, even if it gave an unrealistic view of what all "indie" band singles would be like. Already had Suede's equally high-quality Stay Together single in the collection. Being 13, it seemed like the right direction to go in and move on from parent-friendly AOR.

PaulTMA, Tuesday, 9 April 2019 15:01 (one week ago) Permalink

I hate that they didn't retain the segue between Your Sister's Clothes and Seconds on the delxue reissue. A seemingly minor detail which loses a lot when removed.

PaulTMA, Tuesday, 9 April 2019 15:07 (one week ago) Permalink

I forget how much of Britpop and proto-Britpop is actually just new wave music. The Oasis school of Britpop, no, but His'N'Hers, Parklife, yes definitely.

frame casual (dog latin), Tuesday, 9 April 2019 15:12 (one week ago) Permalink

Yeah, that's pretty OTM. Blur, Pulp, Elastica and even Sleeper fit into this category. I don't think "new wave" when I think of Suede, but I do (like Blur) think of Bowie.

Le Baton Rose (Turrican), Tuesday, 9 April 2019 15:19 (one week ago) Permalink

I don't want to turn this into yet another all purpose '90s British guitar music thread, but for all the comparisons made with a certain '60s guitar band, I hear more of a T. Rex/Slade influence in early Oasis, as well as small things cribbed from shoegaze ('Columbia'), punk (Liam's delivery) and baggy (again, 'Columbia') ...

Le Baton Rose (Turrican), Tuesday, 9 April 2019 15:26 (one week ago) Permalink

I've read that detailed Mark Sturdy book about Pulp a few times, though not in years, so can't remember why Babies was on the album. Was it simply that Island saw it as a hit that got away and they insisted on it keeping it?

PaulTMA, Tuesday, 9 April 2019 15:50 (one week ago) Permalink

i remember in 1997 listening to a mixtape i made myself with some of the songs from this album on it -- over and over -- for like 5 months or so -- i was 22 and in a "complicated" relationship -- i don't think i could pick a song other than one of the ones on that tape:

Lipgloss
Have You Seen Her Lately?
Do You Remember the First Time?
Pink Glove

-- though I was listening to the actual album a month or so back, and I feel like "Happy Endings" is really great, it's like one of those songs that is perfect when you are sobering up and the maudlin is kicking in

i also kinda feel like people's choices here are gonna definitely be informed by gender and sexual orientation ... like, reading this thread and not seeing the majority of posters going for "pink glove" ... and then, the realization ... there are a lot of straight cis-men on ilx

can't remember why Babies was on the album. Was it simply that Island saw it as a hit that got away and they insisted on it keeping it?

Like I said, it was still the time of major labels including one bonus track on CD to justify the higher price - but yes, probably Island did see its hit potential, especially given that they’d already released it on an album about six months before, and would release the remix with a new video a few weeks later.

I used to do a blog where I wrote about every Pulp track, still mean to finish it one day. Here are the entries for this LP, if anyone's interested

Joyriders
Lipgloss
Acrylic Afternoons
Have You Seen Her Lately?
Babies
She's a Lady
Happy Endings
Do You Remember the First Time?
Pink Glove
Someone Like the Moon
David's Last Summer

My vote, boringly, is for Babies. Worst track for me is Joyriders, though I used to like it a lot. The B-sides from this era are amazing.

also, considering this is ilx, i don't feel like it's too nerdy to talk about "joyriders" in relation to Suede's "we are the pigs"

sarahell, Tuesday, 9 April 2019 17:45 (one week ago) Permalink

I honestly can't get on board with this "'Babies' as bonus track on the CD edition" theory, particularly as more people were buying on CD rather than vinyl by 1994 and a lot of record stores had begun to or had already stopped stocking vinyl in huge quantities. It's plausible that Island picked up on 'Babies' as a potential hit single and pushed to get it on the album, however I think that the UK CD edition (minus Razzmatazz) is ultimately the record the band wanted to release. It would make sense to drop 'Babies' from the vinyl as it brings the runtime down to about 45 minutes which is reasonable vinyl album length without compromising sound quality.

This hadn't occurred to me before, but I guess the vocal line of the former does bear a similarity to the opening guitar riff of the latter!

Both produced by Ed Buller, Dog Man Star was the album he produced immediately after His 'n' Hers, but maybe you know this already and I'm being patronising, sorry!

I remember being a bit thrown when I found out Ed Buller had produced this - it doesn't sound anywhere near as much of a reverb fest as his '90s work with Suede does!

Le Baton Rose (Turrican), Tuesday, 9 April 2019 18:03 (one week ago) Permalink

xp - uh, i was thinking more along the lines that they are "political" songs whereas most of the rest of the songs of the album are relationship / emo / personal type stuff?

sarahell, Tuesday, 9 April 2019 18:04 (one week ago) Permalink

To hear what Ed Buller did, compare Pink Glove to the Peel Session version - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLGfuMmpj38 - or just listen to Someone Like The Moon, he should probably get a writing credit on that one.

Don't know if Joyriders is political, I agree it's trying to sound like it's political, sure, but it's all drama really.

Weirdly, I've never warmed to this record; I look at the song titles and think, "Wait, how does this one go?"

okay, thank you! I have a very soft spot for "Have You Seen Her Lately?" but I'm sure a lot of that is personal associations ... but it's kinda like polling Smiths songs, where a lot of the appeal for some people is "relatable content"

leaning towards Babies, but I gotta spin it again to make sure.

to halve and half not (voodoo chili), Tuesday, 9 April 2019 20:30 (one week ago) Permalink

I'm going for Acrylic Afternoons - but to be honest i'd go for Razzmatazz and definitely anything from Sisters over most of this - despite adoring it as an album... Sisters is by far their best release.

Jarvis obviously realises how fucking good His N Hers the song is because it got revived for those 2011 shows, and he's playing it on current solo tours.

i am dropping this here just because it should be in this thread:

Hmmmmm (jamiesummerz), Tuesday, 9 April 2019 21:48 (one week ago) Permalink

There's just something so emotionally wrenching to me personally about all the His 'n' Hers material, even the earlier non-EP B-sides which I didn't get to hear until many years later. Different Class was an incredibly exciting time - especially getting to attend the Leeds gig right after Glastonbury - but the impact of the new album's release was dampened somewhat by already knowing most of the songs in advance due to their appearances on singles and broadcast live gigs. For entirely non-contrary reasons I'll always believe that His 'n' Hers was the perfect era, even if they only managed a small fraction of what they achieved culturally in the following two years

PaulTMA, Tuesday, 9 April 2019 22:10 (one week ago) Permalink

this album is alright, i just felt it was not as consistent as the next three by them which i love to death. i even think i like the B-Sides from this era better. i think "Babies" is the first song i ever heard by Pulp so hard not to vote for it here.

Bee OK, Tuesday, 9 April 2019 23:50 (one week ago) Permalink

Hmm. I think one or two here need to re-familarise themselves with It, Freaks and particularly Separations before faulting the consistency of this record!

His 'n' Hers IS awfully reverby though. It always sounds like you're listening to it in the bathroom. Could be a better record (and it's already a really good record) with different production.

AlXTC from Paris, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 12:45 (one week ago) Permalink

agree Joyriders sounds like Suede.

Babies was my first Pulp song, I heard it via buying Independent 20 vol 16 because I'd seen the videos for Medication by Spiritualized and Winona by Drop Nineteens on The Chart Show's Indie Chart (yeah yeah 90s nostalgia blah blah), and I don't think they ever topped it so it's hard not to vote for it, whether it's really part of the album or not (I had no idea it wasn't on the LP tbh)

I had a passing resemblance to Jarvis in the mid-90s, I don't really look like him imo but I have floppy hair, am tall and at the time was very skinny, and wear glasses and that's enough for most people. So I kinda shied away from Pulp a bit around Different Class because I didn't like people thinking I was some kind of fanboy trying to copy his style. I came back around a bit after hearing The Fear at a friend's house.

Colonel Poo, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 12:52 (one week ago) Permalink

When I first got into indie-type music there was long time when this and the Suede s/t were two of the three indie-type albums I actually owned on CD (the third was Monster), I never made the Ed Buller connection at the time but I can definitely hear some similarities in the guitar sounds, 'Joyriders' for sure but also 'Do You Remember the First Time' (I can remember a friend saying that was the only Pulp song he liked because it sounded like Suede).

Gavin, Leeds, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 13:04 (one week ago) Permalink

I remember hearing and loving ...First Time on the radio at around the same time, but the first Pulp song I got my very own repeat-playable copy of was Lipgloss on a free CD with a magazine, and I became slightly obsessed with it, playing it on repeat, almost living in every swell and wiggle and bubble of the synth line

so, Lipgloss, with an apologetic glance in the direction of First Time (and Babies tbf)

In fact, thinking about it, This is Hardcore is probably more reverby than His 'n' Hers. The drums are absolutely soaked in it, particularly on 'This is Hardcore', 'The Fear' and 'Help the Aged' ...

Le Baton Rose (Turrican), Wednesday, 10 April 2019 15:34 (one week ago) Permalink

I should have listened to this before voting! David's Last Summer didn't hit me like I remembered until the somewhat ominous (and reverb drenched) last minute and a half. The disco drama of She's a Lady on the other hand had me punching the air, and I'd forgotten the chorus of Have You Seen Her Lately. Really anything could have got my vote except for Joyriders, Happy Endings, and Someone Like the Moon.

I agree that those albums have their highlights, just that I find them far less consistent than what followed.

What do people generally consider to be the beginning of prime Pulp, anyway? His 'n' Hers? The Gift Recordings? The single version of 'Countdown'? Separations?

Le Baton Rose (Turrican), Thursday, 11 April 2019 14:19 (one week ago) Permalink

Separations is the start for me. But it's an odd one as it was recorded before the hiatus in 1989 and half of it is in their Slavic folk style which was very much not part of Prime Pulp.

I like early Pulp a lot (love Freaks), but prime Pulp for me starts with the Gift singles. 1992-1994 Pulp rivals 1980-83 New Order for me as best era of a band I love - so many great a-sides and fantastic b-sides, and HNH is such a fab album.

lingereffect (Kent Burt), Friday, 12 April 2019 00:33 (one week ago) Permalink

Yeah, the Gift singles is when things really get good. Intro actually makes a really solid album with some of their most underrated songs (O.U, Stacks, Inside Susan). If I'm going to listen to Pulp these days, it's either that or the second disc of the His 'n' Hers reissue. The B-sides on there are almost Suede level of brilliant. The Sisters EP alone is one of the highlights of their career. Seconds is my favourite Pulp song.

finally listening to it again, and still leaning towards babies, though it doesn't have the sonic heft of 'first time' or 'pink glove,' it's probably the prettiest pulp song, which counts for something.
