This was kind of a surprise when released, as this was a product from The Hague while Amsterdam and Rotterdam were rivalling each other in the Dutch house scene. It also caused a lot of mayhem among clob owners as the intro of the "Naked to the bone", "Bow Chi Bow" and "Gabberianic Verses" versions really could blow the speakers when played loud.

The "Bow Chi Bow" version was the most popular one, containing a then popular gimmick of a looped vocal sample (XTRO, one of the people behind "Hocus Pocus" also did "Dikke vette pannenkoeken" for that matter), founded on a solid, hard techno background. Only the final "Gabberianic Verses" version is real hardcore gabber similar to what was released on labels such as Rotterdam Records and KNOR.

The artist name Vicious Delicious was used only once. Subsequent releases were released under the artist name Hocus Pocus, including a remix of the "Bow Chi Bow" version which was released with the title Bow Chi Bow. In an interview in a popular Dutch dance music magazine, the people behind Hocus Pocus explained that they were mainly inspired by 70s glam rock, but "a techno outfit gives us more room to experiment than a rock band setting".
