A reference in the song is made to Black Star Liner.

Black Star Liner is also the name of a band from Leeds who played Asian influenced dance music and dub reggae.
Recently I picked up a cheap copy of one of their singles Rock Freak from 1997. The title track is a load of pants but the other songs on the single are not too bad
