Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Gang of Four guitarist Andy Gill and vocalist John "Gaoler" Sterry alternating lead lines. "Because there were these two people talking to each other about someone else, I'm kind of like the narrator person and John is kind of like one of those people who are sneering at someone else he doesn't think has any fashion sense," Gill explained to Billboard magazine. It's kind of a back-and-forth thing between us, which I really liked."
