Dire Straits frontman Mark Knopfler told about this song that the inspiration for it came from a sad performance by a band calling themselves that way. Mark K found the contrast between the lacklustre performance and the shining name amusing.
Not only was I buying a lot of singles during this time, but apparently I also accepted that some of them were without proper sleeve. Like this one, it came in a company jacket. Is that caused by the demand being so high the pressing plant just adds a common jacket? Or did the shop lose it? Did they have to remove them to sell them for less? Were these exported to smaller countries like the Netherlands?
