In an interview with getreadytorock.com
, Fin explained how he came to record "Handbags And Gladrags" for The Office
: "My best buddy is a top musicologist, DJ, composer (he wrote the theme tune for Have I Got News For You
), arranger, etc. His name is Big George, and I've worked on a few projects with him, (for example "Well It's Alright," which was a re-working of the Traveling Wilburys tune, for the final episode of One Foot In The Grave
). So, it was the same team as usual who worked on the theme-tune to The Office
. No one was to know just how successful it was to become."
