It appears on The Jam's 1982 album The Gift and also as a double A-Side single along with "Town Called Malice". It reached number one in the UK Singles Chart, but received much less airplay than "Malice". It was a departure for the band from their punk and Mod roots, involving a funk like sound that the band had not previously explored. Some fans and critics have noticed the song contains similar resemblances to "Papa's Got a Brand New Pigbag", which was a relatively new release itself at the time. Weller himself was to admit in 1998 he had indeed used this song as part of the inspiration for Precious.
