  • Guitarist Phil Manzanera recalled to The Mail on Sunday June 28, 2009: "In 1979, I had just built my first recording studio and I rang up Bryan (Ferry) and asked if he'd like to check it out. We decided to have a jam together, Bryan on bass and me on guitar with a rhythm box. Within five minutes we had written this track."
