"It's partly about Woking where I grew up. I don't think the swinging 60s ever hit there'. In 1981, I was going through a few changes. I was taking note of what was going on in our country.

It was the start of the hardline Margaret Thatcher years, and places – up north, especially – were being decimated. I was a young man taking it all in and thinking about it."
