For many years, the Charlatans were perceived as the also-rans of Madchester, the group that didn't capture the zeitgeist like the Stone Roses or the band that failed to match the mad genre-bending of the Happy Mondays.

Working from a Stonesy foundation, the Charlatans added dance-oriented rhythms and layers of swirling organs straight out of '60s psychedelia.

On the A side run-out groove it has etching that reads "There's no message just pure politics",then flip the record over to the B side run-out grooves it says "Good,arn't we?",with a spelling mistake in "aren't" though the correct spelling has been etched then scored out before the flaw.Regardless of this most reviewers and listeners couldn't fail but to agree,the single being a top 10 hit reaching the number 9 spot a week after it slid in the charts at number 24 on it's 2 June release.One thing I found confusing on the sleeve was the songwriting credits.The bands surnames are all there apart from Jon Baker,his surname is displayed as 'Day'.Before I thought it was a different person,until I saw this statement from Jon Baker,quote;"As a joke I once put my name down as Jon Day and it was something that stuck and even ended up in some of the songwriting credits".
