"It's about competitiveness, people getting at you, imitating you and your habits. Plagiarism really obsesses me, that's why I don't like giving away secrets about how I write." (Phil Sutcliffe: Lyricists: Mark E Smith: Q no. 68, May 1992) 
Brix Smith formed her own band taking its name, The Adult Net, from a line in the song.
