  • Weller is assisted on this cryptic tale of forlorn love by Noel Gallagher on guitar. He told NME of the ex Oasis axeman: "we just cracked on with it and tried lots of things together. In the end Noel played guitar on 'The Attic and bass on 'When Your Garden's Overgrown.' I brought him in because you just know you're going to get something good out of him."
  • An attic is a space found directly below the pitched roof of a house. The word is ultimately derived from the Attica region around Athens, Greece and it originally referred to a specific Athenian way of decorating a building and giving it symmetry and refinement. When eighteenth century English architects revived the ancient classical mode of construction, they ornamented the top floor of a house with the Athenian - "Attic" - kind of pilasters. Hence people came to refer to the top storey as the "attic."
