Bassist Reenie Hollis told Drowned In Sound that Long Blondes singer Kate Jackson wrote the lyrics for this song. He explained: "It's about an ex-boyfriend of hers that she would go and meet at the halfway point between where they both lived. But we never even got to play Peterborough, which I think was a real shame. Sometimes we've asked 'is anyone here from Peterborough?' before we play it live, but nobody in the crowd ever is! I also remember seeing a live review that said 'the best song of the night was the rousing 'Pizza Bar'' - maybe we'd have done better to call it that! I think we localized a bit too much with that song."
