How to be English
posted by Jonathan Calder |
At the heart of the album was a John Major-ish vision of a traditional English village green - part of a litany of what Ray calls "things that are really uncool, and not just English things, either. Some of the songs on that album are about really square things. In a strange way, that's part of the fabric of this country: what we are is also what we're slightly ashamed of."
