Speaking to The Observer, Coxon explained this lo-fi sneer was inspired by a night out at a house party in Brentwood which went horribly wrong. He and his two pals took off the tape that was playing and put on a Smiths album. "And then we danced about in quite a… 'faggy' way, for want of a better word," he said. They got really beaten up as a result. "We'd all of us thought we would probably get off with one of our friend's cousins at the party and, well, no," Coxon concluded.
