"I was very nervous about doing Live Aid, it was such a huge gig. People were queuing up to do it because of the exposure, they were talking about the amount of TV coverage and whatever. It was hard to convince some people that we were there for the right reasons."

The song 'New Year's Day' is about the solidarity movement going on in Poland in the early 1980's. The government had promised changes and reforms, which would take effect on Jan. 1 of the following year, but the promises were empty.
