Speaking of Coxon's involvement, Doherty said in a statement: "I remember when I was about 15 and still listened to Pet Shop Boys and Chas & Dave, and some lad at school who was a bit of a mod lent me a Blur tape and it had on it a song called 'Bank Holiday. I was like, 'What's this?' I said to him, 'I liked that tape but that one song, it's a bit fast.' And he said, 'Yeah, it's punk. It depends what mood you're in.' "And then something sort of clicked in me. I've always liked Coxon, it seems, and I don't know why." He added: "I was absolutely horrified when he said he was actually a fan of some of the things I've done."
