Do You Like My Tight Sweater? (Turquoise Vinyl)

Brand new sealed double Limited Edition album, Numbered, Reissue, Turquoise vinyl.

Do You Like My Tight Sweater? is the first album by the electronic/dance duo Moloko, released in October 1995 in the UK and Australia, while being released in March 1997 in the US. The title of the album is derived from the singer Róisín Murphy's chat-up line to Mark Brydon at a party in 1994: "Do you like my tight sweater? See how it fits my body!" A romantic and professional relationship between the two continued for several years after. Do You Like My Tight Sweater? combined three tracks ("Where is the What if the What is in Why," "Party Weirdo," and "Ho Humm") from a 1995 independently released EP Where is the What if the What is in Why? (also known as Moloko EP) with fourteen new recordings. It was reported by Billboard that in 1996 total sales have reached 100,000 copies. [3] As of 2003 it has sold over 250,000 copies worldwide.

This is the only Moloko album, before 2006's Catalogue, to receive a release in the United States (via Warner Bros. Records) as part of the electronica hype of the late 1990s. The album's first single, "Fun for Me", was used on the soundtrack of the 1997 film Batman and Robin, and was used as the theme for a Lucky Strike advertisement in Spain. "Fun for Me" had a US video directed by Bill Fishman, inspired by Batman & Robin, but for the second single "Day for Night," the UK video was used instead.

The album was certified silver by the British Phonographic Industry in July 2013,[1] for UK sales exceeding 60,000 copies.
