Cocker was so good with perversely second-guessing inner monologue that listening to his lyrics were like putting on a pair of corrective lenses--the guilt of dislocation at the end of the party, the painful crush on the beautiful girl who is used for sex, & the ensuing morose sadism moralizing about her whorishness.

Although the music was still power pop, the band began adopting a more crunchy, garage-band sound, thanks primarily to Lally's purchase of a Les Paul Standard, which helped to unleash his heretofore untapped ability to wrench the perfect note from any spot on the fretboard with real feeling and panache.
Tensions within the band began to increase, compounded by disastrous tours, low-selling but highly regarded releases, ill-attended local shows and volatile lineup shifts that culminated in an uncharacteristically well attended breakup show in March 1997 at Luciano's, a coffee shop and occasional music venue which stood across Forbes Avenue from the Duquesne campus.
The band felt that their first show without Rust, on January 30, went as well as could be expected.
