Songfacts®:

  • This song was a originally a B-side to The Strypes debut single "Blue Collar Jane." Producer Chris Thomas hadn't heard the tune because the band did it with Squeeze member/Strypes mentor Chris Difford. They re-recorded the track for Snapshot after Thomas asked for another song for the album. Vocalist Josh McClorey told NME: "We'd sort of written it off but Chris was asking for another song so we played him that. Now we're very happy with it."
