Hugh Cornwell, Jet Black, Dave Greenfield, Jean-Jacques Burnel of the Stranglers in 1981 released in the USA late in that year and in the UK in 1982. It was also included on the album La Folie and was the bands second single from their 6th Studio album.

It was quite successful despite not making the charts in the USA it made the top 10 in Belgium The Netherlands and Ireland as well as the UK where it peaked at #2

The Stranglers "claimed that the song's lyrics were akin to an aural Rorschach test and that people only heard in it what they wanted to hear, although this did not prevent persistent allegations that the lyrics alluded to heroin" Hugh Cornwall their guitarist said it worked on 2 levels 1 about a girl the other about heroin

Sneaker pimps self released a covers album of 6 tracks in 2004 and made it available on cassette and MP3 it consisted of previously unreleased material from shows held at the Institute Of Contemporary Arts (ICA) on the Mall, London, 2000.
