** "Touched by the Hand of Cicciolina" combines a reference to NewOrder's "Touched by the Hand of God" (itself a reference to Maradona's "Hand of God" goal in the 1986 World Cup) and Ilona "Cicciolina" Staller, an Italian porn actress who had won election to Parliament in 1987, married at the time to American artist Jeff Koons. (She lost her 1991 re-election bid.)

Three important things happened in the process of PWEI recording their follow-up album: Graham Crabb abandoned the drums in favour of vocals and other instruments, being replaced with a drum machine nicknamed "Dr. Nightmare", the band signed a record contract with RCA Records, and they hooked up with AlternativeRock RecordProducer Mark "Flood" Ellis. ''This Is The Day... This Is The Hour... This Is This!'', released in 1989, saw the band develop its sound further with increased HipHop influences, kaleidoscopic sampling, metal-flavoured {{Epic Riff}}ing and more electronic elements, all sharpened by Flood's production, over which Mansell and Crabb barked, {{Piss Take Rap}}ped and sang their amusingly silly lyrics like an English Music/BeastieBoys. Being synchronised with a stream of nationally popular bands that either combined rock with dance music (Music/TheStoneRoses and Music/HappyMondays) or bands that had a similar [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly everything-goes]], danceable alt-rock sound as the Poppies (Jesus Jones, Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine, their Stourbridge comrades The Wonder Stuff, Ned's Atomic Dustbin and Diamond Head), ''This Is The Day...'' was greeted with great reviews, went to #24 on the British charts and spawned three successful singles: "Def. Con. One" (a hit on the US Modern Rock charts), "Can U Dig It?" and "Wise Up! Sucker..." (which featured backing vocals from their former bandmate Miles Hunt). Next year's follow-up album, ''Cure for Sanity'', largely continued in the same style and with Flood behind the mixing boards again, and was similarly well-received.

'''Pop Will Eat Itself''' (PWEI or The Poppies for short) were an AlternativeRock[=/=]Alternative Dance[=/=][[IndustrialMetal Industrial Rock]] band from Stourbridge in the West Midlands, active initially from 1986 to 1996. Their sampletastic, hip-hop and electronica-influenced alternative rock style was nicknamed "Grebo" in music magazines like ''NME'' and ''Melody Maker'', largely from their songs "Oh Grebo I Think I Love You" (from ''Now for a Feast!'') and "Grebo Guru" (from ''Box Frenzy''). They're nowadays rather more famous for being the band ClintMansell started his career in than their actual music.
