This song is named after the symbol of Coventry, which is Enemy's home city.
Frontman Tom Clarke told The Sun April 17, 2009 that this song was inspired by the band's first trip to Japan. He explained: "It's about being on a plane for 12 hours and landing in Tokyo and it seeming like another planet. It's an amazing place, it's like Mars."
Bruce Springsteen wrote "Blinded By The Light," which was a #1 hit for Manfred Mann's Earth Band. The "Madman Drummers" line is a reference to Springsteen's first E-Street drummer, Vinnie "Mad dog" Lopez.
