Following a secret SXSW show in March 2011, the Mystery Jets set up a home recording studio in a country house by the Colorado river in the Westlake area in Austin, Texas. During their flight to Texas the band encountered a missionary from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints who tried to recruit guitarist William Rees to the Mormon faith. This song is based on that experience and the title is taken from her business card, which she handed to Rees as they landed.
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.
