B-Side Yourself: Pulp – His ‘N’ Hers

His N Hers somehow didn’t make it onto the album of the same name but was rather stuck at the end of the Sisters EP which served as the ‘Babies’ B-side. The song, which stretches on for six minutes, has all the synthy bounce of Babies mixed with the coy, tragically glamourous sex appeal of This is Hardcore, and Jarvis ends it with a whispering play by play of a conversation [which in live versions go off onto strange tangents, in this one he muses on wasps] and breathless moaning akin to My Legendary Girlfriend, which will make you uncomfortable in all the right ways and maybe make you turn the volume down so your mum doesn’t walk in and demand to know what you’re listening to.
