Whenever I curl up with a warm, soothing cup of milk & rum and begin to make my way through a well-worn copy of Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr. Fox (every Saturday), I will invariably put on an equally well-worn record of Pulp's Different Class. There's just something about working class, disco-inspired Britpop that meshes perfectly with the comic exploits of an anthropomorphic fox stealing food from some mean old farmers.

None of that is true, but Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker will reportedly be providing some of the score to Wes Anderson's stop-motion adaptation of the book, so we'll find out if they really do mesh as well as I dream--like milk and rum.
