A song by the title of Warrior in Woolworths was a hit in the late 1970s by UK punk group Suzie and the Banshees.
I thought the connection was on the more obvious side of delicate obscurity, especially for those of us who weren't asleep during the period! (I'm joking)
As for the connection between 'pure' and 'woolworths', I'll leave it to Ajahn to explain.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
