Moffat used the pen name "Richard Allen".<br>
His book "Suedehead" is suggested as an inspiration:<br>
Len: "For starters, surely 'Suedehead' has something to do with Richard Allen's pre-punk seminal trash novel of the same name? Yet there's no mention of suedehead(s) in the lyrics?"
M: "No, I'd noticed that. Does the song have anything to do with the title? Well, I did happen to read the book when it came out and I was quite interested in the whole Richard Allen cult. But really I just like the word 'suedehead'."
Len: "So it's not even based on an episode from Suedehead?"
M: "No, not really."
Len: "And it's not about anyone in particular?"
M: "Yes, it is, but I'd rather not give any addresses and phone numbers at this stage."
