The Cult's front man, Ian Astubury, became interested in Sedgwick while the band were recording their Electric
album in New York: "It was kinda like I was really interested in Warhol's scene, The Velvet Underground
[who Warhol managed between 1965-1967], and really interested in Edie Sedgwick and just was compelled to write something about it." Guitarist, Billy Duffy added: "Just being in New York you can get wrapped up in it. It's a very special place. That's just basically what the songs about. It's not really about her particularly, it's her used as an example."
