The song is built around a descending riff, with the dominant instrument being composer Syd Barrett 's electric guitarfed through an echo machine ; the resultant sound has been likened to a "sinister" Duane Eddy. Though the lyric frequently refers to Lucifer Sam as a cat, some speculation has arisen as to whether this was in fact slang "a hip cat" for a man, real or imagined, in some type of relationship with Barrett's then-girlfriend, Jenny Spires referred to in the song as "Jennifer Gentle".
Barrett later performed the song with his band Stars. Lightning Seeds covered the song as a B-side, and it appeared on their best of collection. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
