"The sound of a long-lost childhood...The smell of a damp school cloakroom, from an age when comics were still printed on newsprint...But this is more than just another product of the nostalgia industry - put on this album & immediately you'll be soaring through the air, free of your earthly shackles: for this is the sound of a human soul in flight. A beautiful daydream antidote to an all too real South Yorkshire nightmare. Tha' won't get me down t'pit. Pig, Pig, Sow,Sow. Tha' dun't like being called a bastard does tha'? This is the real thing. This is beauty so fragile it hurts. This is music with the Jesses well & truly off."
- Jarvis Cocker
