  • Lyrics
  • This largely instrumental track written by Mott guitarist Mick Ralphs is the opening song from the Mad Shadows album. In the official biography of the band, bass player Overend Watts said of the title, "We found the name scrawled on a toilet wall in the Pied Bull. I think it was the name of a group."
  • The song was first played live at the Country Club in Hampstead. >>
