In Flyin' High (Again)
, an interview with Phil Mogg by Dick Dickson, published in the December 13-26, 1984 issue of Kerrang!
, it was revealed that "No Getaway" is based on a film called The Fan
There are a number of films with that title, but the only one that fits is the 1981 thriller starring Lauren Bacall. The Internet Movie Database said of this film: "A record salesman is an obsessed fan of an actress of stage and screen... However when his letters are rejected, the fan strikes out at the actresses [sic] friends, then at her."
Which is clearly not the sort of thing the charismatic Mr Mogg would ever do! Running to 3 minutes 32 seconds, "No Getaway" is the ninth track in the 1983 Making Contact
album and was co-written with lead guitarist Paul Chapman and Neil Carter.
