Interview: Nik Kershaw

Nik Kershaw talks about the new album EI8HT, politics, pop lyrics and how 1980s pop stars thought they were saving the world.

“Back in the day a lot of us took ourselves way too seriously. But we were encouraged to. We were saving the planet with Live Aid, weren’t we? We had this ridiculous sense of self-importance, and it was difficult not to take yourself seriously.”
