Album Notes

Electric Arguments was the third studio album from The Fireman and their first to feature vocals. It is an eclectic and varied albums consisting of thirteen tracks recorded in thirteen days over the period of nearly a year. It's also the first album to be acknowledged by Paul as his work and features both his and producer Youth's names on the artwork for the first time. Released by independent label One Little Indian, whose most notable other signing is avant garde pop artist Bjork, Electric Arguments was made with no external influence, no pressure from any record label executives and no eye on commercial appeal (although it was the first album by The Fireman to reach the UK and US top 75). The title was taken from a poem by Allen Ginsberg, an influence on Paul at the time due to the fact that he'd been "looking at the beauty of word combinations rather than their meaning." The album was a huge critical success, with Rolling Stone referring to it as "the ex-Beatle's headiest music in years."
