SUGGS: We were teetering on the cusp of the whirlpool of ’80s nostalgia. We could have quite happily stopped flapping our flippers and slipped gently down into the hole with everybody else. But we flapped and flapped like mad and tried to write what we thought would be an album to stand with anything else we’ve done which I think we did. That gave us the ability to get out of the black hole. The album didn’t sell in its millions but was extremely well received in the intellectual music circles and that has an effect on how you are perceived generally. If we just knocked out some old crap then you wouldn’t be held in high regard. It all added to the pot of being perceived as a working band again; we aren’t just lolling on the lilo of novelty we’re actually sailing around a bit on our own steam.
