Some of the group's older work can be found under the names "Talkhouse," "the Slowdown,” “Bigsleep,” and most prominently “Drive Like I Do.” Their current name was inspired by a Beat poetry notebook that Matty Healy found on holiday. The book was dated “1 June, The 1975.” Healy states that his attraction to the name was only RuleOfCool.

No / Broken phone, retching on the floor alone...'), is even [[NoFourthWall called out by the narrator]] ('I can't believe that we're talking about him!') and eventually gets arrested ('I'm searching you, mate, your jaw's all over the place... / Look, the dog won't bark if you don't lark about...').
