I don’t think any of us look back on this song as a classic but it marks quite an important stage of the bands development. There was a real rush of creativity around the In This Light… sessions and we were all experimenting with different styles and equipment and having a load of fun doing it – nothing was viewed as a bad idea, and a new idea was always being offered up. I loved the massive synths twinned with some mad percussive loops and the dark lyrics, and the overall sound of this song got us going on a bit of an industrial vibe.
