Martin Davis, the lead singer of the Buckinghamshire based group Dirty Mavis was walking his dog through the woods in Great Missenden when he bumped into one of the lead campaigners against the proposed High Speed 2 rail link between London and the North.

Martin Davis told Mix 96 "I met the anti-HS2 campaigner Joe Rukin who told me they'd approached another band to write a song for them to support their campaign; but nothing had come of the request. So after thinking about what Joe had told me about the plans to build part of the through the Chilterns and over the Missenden Plain, I started to come up with some lyrics and a tune for the campaigners."

Martin added "On my drive home through the Chilterns I began to put the song together, and by the time I reached home, I had the full song ready to go in my head!"

His 6-piece group Dirty Mavis, based in Buckinghamshire were fully behind the idea and release the track on download from today.
