* JustifiedTitle: "It's Lulu" is a ShoutOut to a 1970s TV pop show starring the singer Lulu. As Martin Carr confirms in his sleevenotes to ''Find The Way Out'', he liked the title so much that he wrote the song as an excuse to use it, and justified it by naming the girl in the song Lulu.

While definitely considered part of the first wave of shoegazing bands, they lasted ''much'' longer than most of their contemporaries (Music/CatherineWheel being the only band that would still be together into the 2000s, Music/MyBloodyValentine aside). Depending on what popular music history buff you talk to, they'll either mark their break up, or Catherine Wheel's break up as the marker between First Wave and Second Wave shoegazing bands (or, to complicate things even more, the release of Music/MyVitriol's ''Finelines'' in 2001).

* SimilarlyNamedWorks: It's often been assumed that ''Giant Steps'' is named after Music/JohnColtrane's seminal album of the same title, though the band have denied this.

* ''Ichabod & I'' (1990) - limited-run debut, dismissed by the band as an LP of DinosaurJr rip-offs but not without its fans

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: ''Ichabod & I'' had one official release, vinyl-only, 500 copies. The band seemed to regard it as OldShame though one track, "Catweazle", was eventually included on the career-spanning ''Find The Way Out'' compilation.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Carr admits that this usually made their records stronger, and that he regrets the times he resisted it (such as when he insisted on "Free Huey" as the lead single from ''Kingsize'' when Alan [=McGee=] wanted... anything ''but'' "Free Huey", basically).

* CreatorBacklash: Carr and Sice both reckon fan favourite "I Hang Suspended" was mere AlbumFiller. Their commentaries on the ''Giant Steps'' reissue website also reveal a shared dislike of "Spun Around", while Carr says "'One Is For' is shite."
