Marty about 'Our town'

We put this track down and, with all the synthesizers on, it just sounded like a city song. It's written for the kid who lives in an area he should really get out of. So many youngsters in this generation are crowded into badly designed housing schemes - and when old enough to be independent, they should get out into the world and explore. If our song influences young people to think about that possibility, then the song succeeds. (1)
