    General Commentdoes the weird voice during the chorus remind anyone else a whole lot of the electronic "Crazy Beat" voice?

    Song MeaningFrom beginning to end, it's like an artist gone mad who's sporadically tossing cans of paint against a blank white canvas and anticipating the end result. A strap-yourself-in kind of song, purely abstract; one of my favorites.

    General Commentit's a referance to the relationship between the band and the EMI record company.

    General Comment"Group using a loop, Of another pop group"? Sounds like a shot at oasis (the way they idolize the beatles) to me.

    General Comment'Group using a loop
    Of another pop group
    Completing the cycle
    Until the teenage maniacs
    They'll bring it all back'

    hah. It sounds like Damon's slagging off the new Indie scene a decade in advance.

    My InterpretationThis song is about the way trends from earlier years and types of music come back into use. Example: Britpop is brought back from 60's mod music. It could also be about plagiarism, seeing that another pop group is stealing an older pop groups sound, and feeding it to the new generation that's too ignorant to see that it's all been done before.

    General Commentit is either an applaud or a dig at the music scene in general - take your pick, you (the listener) is the decider.

    blur are emi.

    Sex Pistols have a similar song, more related to them than Oasis!

    General CommentDamon had seen all these second rate bands rip off the first wave of Britpop and he'd probably had enough. By 1998, we were talking about bands like Travis and The Stereophonics still milking the old derivative cow and enjoying mass commercial success.

    I think the title nods not only to the record company, but to the Sex Pistols also, who had their own song called "EMI". The song itself is quite punky, so that's a natural connection to make.
