All Songs by Murdoch? I don't think that's right.[edit]

If I recall correctly, "Electronic Renaissance" was written by Stuart David, and "She's Just a Baby" and "I Don't Love Anyone" by Stevie Jackson. I'll dig around their site to see if I can verify.

Quotes in title[edit]

Is it Tigermilk or "Tigermilk"? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.220.99.334 01:06, July 26, 2007

If this helps clear it up, the back of the album reads as follows: This is the first record by Belle and Sebastian. They've called it "Tigermilk" with the quotes as such. For what it's worth, if I saw only that statement and not the front cover, I would *not* think that the quotes are part of the title. Everdred (talk) 04:25, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

The Cover[edit]

The cover is of course fascinating. According to this article it's apparently a spoof of the cover of Mama Lion's debut album, but I can't find a better source - one that quotes the band - and Wikipedia-ising this observation is complicated by the fact that Wikipedia doesn't have an article on Mama Lion (only the lead singer, Lynn Carey). Presumably the band thought up the name Tigermilk after buying a used copy of the Mama Lion album - god, what a crap name for a band - and commissioned the cover photograph to match the concept. -Ashley Pomeroy (talk) 21:31, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Modern Socks article link is now dead - just found a link with the Mama Lion - Preserve Wildlife cover (nsfw obviously) http://www.ugo.com/music/mama-lion-preserve-wildlife

& there was me assuming Tigermilk's cover was parodying Tori Amos apparently suckling a piglet (Co-incidence, or Tori's album art referancing Mama Lion?) - http://mst3kriffaday.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/toriamosboysforpelepig.jpg?w=584 (nsfw again) inside or back cover photo from Boys For Pele (inexplicable not mentioned in it's wiki article). If the article's dates are right Boys for Pele came out January '96, 5 months before Tigermilk's original release - more likely reference point?

Erroneous trivia?[edit]

I believe the following statement that appears in the "Trivia" section, though accompanied by a citation which presumably gives it credibility, is completely erroneous:

"Melodic elements of "The State I Am In" bear a striking similarity to those of Blondie's 1979 hit single "Sunday Girl".[2]"

The extent to which this may in fact be true is not at all obvious listening to both songs side by side, and, as such, I think it should be removed from the page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.170.215.136 (talk) 19:48, 12 May 2011 (UTC)
