A long, long time ago, in a land governed by an Iron Lady who was suspicious of Europe and sure of Britain’s greatness, Rog Patterson quietly released his debut album. It was 1989 and with the Cold War ending and the Berlin Wall crumbling, his folk-prog tales of injustice and rage seemed out of time.
