Me Me Me were a short-lived English Britpop supergroup formed in 1996, consisting of Alex James of Blur (vocals, bass), Stephen Duffy (vocals, guitar) previously of Duran Duran/The Lilac Time and Justin Welch of Elastica (drums), and James' friend Charlie Bloor (credited as "musician"). The band's first, and only single, "Hanging Around" was released on 5 August 1996 and reached Number 19 on the UK Singles Chart.[1]

"Hanging Around" was released on 7-inch single (DUFF005) and cassette (DUFF005C), also featuring "Hollywood Wives", and on CD-single with a third track, "Tabitha's Island" (DUFF005CD). There were also promotional versions released in July 1996 on 12-inch single (DOLE041) and CD-single (DOLE044).[2] The tracks were originally recorded as a soundtrack for Damien Hirst's film Hanging Around, first shown at the Spellbound Exhibition, which took place at London's Hayward Gallery in March 1996.[3]

The lead track was produced by the band. The other tracks were produced by Stephen Street.[3]
