Pulp - Razzmatazz (1993)

This was Pulp's final single before signing with Island and embarking on the road to international superstardom. "Razzmatazz" is pop irony at its best with its overtones of malevolent incest and teenage pregnancy. The remaning three tracks are a chronological retelling of Susan's shenanigans. From her pre-pubescence to her end as an unfaithful spouse, the whole thing is a combination of trainer bras, the smell of rabbits and hidden love bites in one unholy mess of hormones on red alert.
