real life : information

JK: "On our first 90s album, Real Life, we thought that if the melodies were tehre, we'd be fine. They weren't there. Up until then, it was a group thing, but then it was all on Charlie's shoulders. We thoguht we could sail through this, but it was fragmented. Engines were falling off, leaving only Charlie and I. At the time, it was going to be tough anyway. For a band of your generation, with one or two exceptions, you're going to get it in the neck with what's coming next. For us, it was The Stone Roses or Happy Mondays coming over the hill. At times like that you need to have all your wits about you and be at the top of your game. Ironically, we never saw it that way."

CB: "Real Life was a big selling album, but everyone was talking about slippage. Becasue we weren't selling quite as much, there was a negative air about it. We were still trying to change sounds, but we overshot the mark at times."
