The other people I was hanging around with at that time - Tricky, Howie and Graham - they didn’t mind sitting in a studio listening to albums and arguing wheter they were good or bad. Sort of to challenge me about. So I ended up working with them, which as completely unplanned. It just showed the kind of musical contacts I had at that time. Where that spark was and where it wasn’t. I also think this describes very well what was going on in London in that period. When I made ’Debut’ I was incredibly shy and didn’t know anyone, more like a beginner. But when I made ’Post’ I’d got to know a lot of people and I thought the hanshakes between me and the people doing the duets were very genuine.
