It was the group's first recording sessions since they completed work on their third album The Queen Is Dead six months earlier. During the interim period, bassist Andy Rourke had been fired due to his heroin addiction. The band hired Craig Gannon to replace him, but after they rehired Rourke, guitarist Johnny Marr offered Gannon a position as second guitarist.The now five-piece band worked with producer John Porter at Livingston Studios; this was his first work with the group in two years. Porter added several layers of tracks by guitarists Marr and Gannon. Porter was concerned that the song was too short, so he copied the band's first take from 5 May and spliced a repetition of the first verse at the end to increase its length. The group was unimpressed and opted to leave the song as they originally structured it.Within weeks of release, an effigy of popular BBC Radio 1 DJ Dave Lee Travis was hung from the lamp posts of High Wycombe in response to the song's lyrics. It was removed by police within hours and no arrests were madeThe posters will be sent out in plastic tubes all carefully packaged to help prevent damage.
