    Hup is the second album by The Wonder Stuff. The Hup album contains several references to the 1980s BBC sit-com The Young Ones. "30 Years In The Bathroom" features the line: 'Now it's time to share the joke that the latch on the bathroom door was broke.' The song name is taken from an exchange between Neil and Rik after Neil has been waiting outside of the bathroom door for Rik to come out. Rik asks Neil 'How long have you been waiting there?' and Neil replies "30 years". There is also another Young Ones reference in the song "Cartoon Boyfriend". In the episode called Sick, Mike walks into a room and says to the other house mates "What's this fish doing in my bed?" before walking back off set looking perplexed. In the song Hunt sings the line "there's a worm in my head and a fish in my bed, she said. Confused? You will be..." "Let's Be Other People" mentions the book by Leonard Cohen called Beautiful Losers. "Piece of Sky" was originally planned to be the next single after "Golden Green", but this plan was abandoned when Rob Jones left the band in December 1989. The promotional video originally filmed for "Piece Of Sky" was re-worked and ultimately used for their next single, "Circlesquare", which was written on the same day as "Can't Shape Up"; May 9, 1989.
