Charted coincidentally at UK #6.
"Legacy", "Being A Girl (Part One)", "Negative" and "Six" were each released as singles.
"Being A Girl (Part One)" is literally the first two minutes of "Being A Girl" it was in this form that it was released as a single.
"Six" was re-recorded and produced by Arthur Baker for its single release.
The album's sleeve art was a painting produced by Max Schindler, and commissioned especially for the album. It contains many references to personal interests and obsessions of the band, such as a
TARDISand an image of Tom Bakeras Doctor Who, and Patrick McGoohanas Number 6, from The Prisoner. There is also a depiction of Winnie the Poohstanding close to a painting that may be a reproduction of Vinegar tasters, a Taoistallegorical painting. Guitarist Dominic Chadis known to be both a Taoist and a fan of A. A. Milne, and the album's name is in fact a reference to Milne's book Now We Are Six.
The cover also depicts a number of (perhaps non-existent) books, including:
*"Life As A Series of Compromises" by
*"Who On Earth Is Tom Baker?" by
Tom Baker(the actor's autobiography)
Nineteen Eighty Four" by George Orwell(1984 was one of the album's working titles)
120 Days of Sodom" by Marquis De Sade(referenced in the lyrics of "Legacy")
Book of Mormon(referenced in the lyrics of "Cancer")
The Bible Code" by Michael Drosnin
*"People Places" by
Richard Rogers(referenced in the lyrics of "Anti-Everything")
*"The House on Pooh Corner" by
A. A. Milne(referenced in the lyrics of "Shotgun")
Dianetics" by L. Ron Hubbard(referenced in the lyrics of "Negative")
*"The Schizoid Man", Refers to an episode title of "The Prisoner"
*"Paint It Black" by
Geoffrey Giuliano(a book on the death of Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones, an important influence on Dominic Chad)
The inlay booklet includes enlarged images of the piles of books from the cover, making it easier to read the authors and titles.
One book perhaps notably absent is
Benjamin Hoff's " The Tao of Pooh", given Chad's interest in both Taoism and A. A. Milne. The book is also arguably one of the major influences behind the lyrics to the song "Shotgun".
