Now that was made in three weeks, were the songs also written very quickly?

No, that was part of the problem, there were some of the songs that were argueably recorded better earlier on when we were still called On A Friday and it was that kind of nightmare situation of being a professional band and having time to record already quite old songs which would have been fine but the plan was to tour in England once and then do the second album and things kind of got stretched and put into stasis by the success.
It's kind of like a collection of our greatest hits as an unsigned band or our supposed greatest hits...
...yes, in a way thats fine for us, these songs were written so quickly and we're the kind of band who would before we were signed were writing songs every week, sometimes they were very bad...
Pablo Honey is one of the most dreadfully sequenced records ever.
With the first record everyone was telling us how important it was, that it was happening but for this record we've got no expectations because we think the terms 'crossed over' into a frighteningly diverse people we had people turning up at our live shows and would then leave after Creep, five or ten people everynight so we'd get security to stop them and ask them why are they going... "Do you hate the rest of the songs?" or something and luckily or unluckily they were saying, well no we do this to all bands you know and we saw Nirvana last week and we left after Smells Like Teen Spirit because we don't like live bands but we watch MTV we know the single, so there's this whole kind of bizare crowd of people who wee obviously into our music which was great possibly not a very accurate indicator...
