The song title was inspired by the J. Ballard collection of "condensed novels" of the same name. Ned Raggett of AllMusic described it as "one of the least likely opening songs from any album—even if the core chorus from Ian Curtis is 'This is the way, step inside'". It subsequently featured in live sets before being recorded for the Closer sessions. Barney played bass and I played Счастье Мое - Концертный Ансамбль Электромузыкальных Инструментов ЦТ и ВР* - Счастье Мое - Мелодии П. I was nowhere as proficient a guitarist as him, mind you, but I liked the way it sounds.
Great riff, great bass too. Hannett's production has been highly praised, with Pitchfork describing it as "sepulchral". Hook said that the track was mixed on one of his days off, and when he heard the final product was disappointed that the abrasiveness of his guitar part had been laden with effects and toned down. He wrote; "I was like, head in hands, 'Oh fucking hell, it's happening again. Unknown Pleasures number two Martin [Hannett] had fucking Welcome To My World - Nat Stuckey - Stuckey Style the guitar with his Marshall Time Waster.
Made it sound like someone strangling a cat and, to my mind, absolutely killed the song. I was so annoyed with him and went in and gave him a piece of my mind but he just turned round and told me to fuck off".
The track, especially Stephen Morris's tribal drum pattern, seems influenced by krautrock band Can. According to Raggett, "Morris's drumming has more than a little off-kilter pound and swing to things, while instead of the dramatic foregrounding of those beats he so often does, Martin Hannett pushes them a bit back in the mix, strong but a bit subordinate".
