Other information[edit]

  • The video for this single features 50+ friends/fans from Hull watching the band perform in a London pub until a fight breaks out. Lead singer Tom Atkin is thrown through a glass door by an angry gig goer after he kisses his girlfriend.
  • Pete Doherty performed this song live on stage at Hedi Slimane's Birthday Party at Triptyque in Paris and got the timing of the song wrong, due to him only knowing the demo version of the song.
  • An alternative (acoustic) version of the song is available through iTunes.
