Nick Lowe produced this track along with the rest of the first Damned album. It was recorded at Pathway, an 8-track studio in London with few amenities. Lowe's production style leaves little room for refinement but can capture a live feel; he was a perfect fit for The Damned, who had been leaving crowds gobsmacked with their frenetic energy. In a Songfacts interview with lead singer Dave Vanian
, he explained: "It was an amazing experience because the idea was to capture the essence of the band - the live essence of the band. And if we had a big fancy producer, a big studio, and spent time, I don't think we would have gotten that. Instead, you got this perfect encapsulation of seeing that band live, and it was an explosion of sound that was very rudimentary in production. In fact, no production - just the volume was set. I remember singing in the hallway because there was too much of the music coming into my microphone. I had to sing out there with the door shut, and it was still very loud because everything was full volume. There was barely enough room for the band when we recorded it, but it was a fantastic experience."
