Album: Rascalize (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Drummer Greg Mighall explained to the NME why they released this track as a single just ahead of the album release: "We've been thinking about what track to have for the next single quite a lot, and then the other day we just thought 'let's go with it' and changed our original plans. It's one of our favorite tunes live anyway already. It always goes down well so we just thought 'let's put it out'."
  • This is about a guy who frontman Miles Kane and Greg Mighall's brother met at a party.
