So Knowle West Boy is his answer? "I've made this for all my fans. And I'll do that with my next album. Because I'm very punk rock - I do Maxinquaye and people go mad over it, and straight away I do Nearly God to say 'fuck you'. And you get into that sort of attitude, which is great. My fans love Pre Millenium Angels, that's one I couldn't have done without that attitude, but also I feel like I wanna give a bit more now, not critics - I don't give a fuck - but these are the people who've stayed with me. And I've got kids who are fifteen who know me who shouldn't even know who I am. So this is like my people phase, it's exciting. And I think I'm just gonna get better, and that my next album's gonna be much better than this one, because I wanna give. It's a different vibe." [musicOMH]
