In Jonathan Miller's Stripped, Martin recounts the concert at 1982-03-30 Rainbow Club, Oberkorn, Luxembourg and the origin of the name for this instrumental B-side:

Martin Gore: "We rarely bother to look at our touring schedules, and so naturally thought we'd be playing in Brussels. But instead we found ourselves pulling into a tiny village called Oberkorn. It was a curious kind of village with a population that would hardly fill the first few rows of any ordinary theatre, so it was quite a fascination for us to find out just what would happen. Instead of our gig being to a handful of people, the place was packed as the audience came from all around and even from across the borders. But there was an interesting twist to this concert. When we got back to our hotel our record company told us that whilst the A-side of our single was all set, they needed a title rapidly for the B-side. We're never all that good with names and the first thing that sprang to mind was the name of this village, Oberkorn. So that's the title we used!"
