John Cage's 4' 33'' shares the same track time.

Just randomly noticed it. Wonder if it was Webber stamping his minimalist mark...

Sometime in Spring 1995, an emboldened Mr Webber issued an ultimatum to the group: "If you don't let me join the band full-time, I will take you from this sickness, dinner parties and champagne...and make you so anti-pop, you'll be lucky if Fire even look at you again..."

Love it. I have one that's alway confused me. What does the following line actually mean? 'If you look under the bed, then I can see my house from here'.
As a kid, I assumed it was something poetic or sleazy that only adults would understand. Now I'm an adult I'm still non the wiser. Any thoughts?

Yeah, I always wondered was it an obtuse/pervy reference to a sexual position but I've never really understood it.

I always imagined it was looking under a top bunk of a bunk bed, out of a bedroom window...

I'm glad I'm not the only one who is still puzzled by this. I like the bunk bed theory.

Yeah, but who of...shaggable age has a bunk bed? Unless, the sisters from Babies were still on his mind.

"If you look under the bed, then I can see my house from here."
By looking under the bed she's bending over. His 'home' is between her legs.
^ Not my idea. I saw people discussing it on Twitter, so don't blame me.

Yep, that was what I thought too.

As for the next line - I've always assumed that when she's "looking under the bed", that also means he can literally see out of the window, across the rooftops to his literal house, which is a reminder he's doing something he very much shouldn't be. So they move over to the wall for some standing-up fun, which has the bonus of not having any such distractions.

It's a grubby little song, isn't it?

"Mucky" as Nick described it in Tim's Listening Party playback of Diff Class last year.

That is a really good interpretation of the lyrics - what a bounder! Even more of a cad than our narrator two tracks later in I Spy.

Also, it's very much in direct contrast to the luckless protagonist of The Boss a couple of years earlier. "I was listening through the wall as he laid you down..."

We're making a move, we're making it now? We'll, someone certainly was...

When I saw Russell at the one public bit of promo he did for his book a few years ago, he expressed fatigue/annoyance at an ageing Jarvis/band still singing about girls underwear etc.

It is an interesting dynamic in a band to think about when most members pay little attention to the lyrics/how the singer acts etc.
