Songfacts®:

  • Pete Wakefield was asked about this track by Product #8, in particular was it based on a true life experience, to which the English Dogs vocalist replied it was a reference to their bass player Wattie being beaten up over a woman. That's the polite version!
  • Running to around 3 minutes 20 seconds, it is the second track on Side B of the 12 inch EP Mad Punx & English Dogs, and like the rest of the record is credited to Wakefield/Murray/Pinching/Watson.

    Another classic angry Punk track, it is most notable for its driving bass line. >>
