‘They Suffocate At Night’ was the first single in the build up to the release of ‘Freaks’, Pulps first album to be recorded whilst signed to Fire. The release was much darker to that of their debut album ‘It’, but a lot had changed in the 3 years since. By this time every member bar Jarvis had moved on but the addition of Russell Senior proved to be a pivotal turning point for the band. No longer did Pulp sound pastoral, easy-natured; now they were darkly romantic, brooding, noisy and a little bit Gothic, in the way young folk who brush their hair a certain way are always a little bit Gothic. Pulp were out-of-tune with the times: but the times didn't satisfy Pulp. On blue and yellow split vinyl.
