Tooker's a tough one to figure out.  Very mundane stuff, but with creepy, threatening undertones and a constant sense of unease and dread.  Sort of like a Thomas Berger novel translated into visuals.  Or maybe the theme of NO EXIT laid out in tempera.  You gotta respect anyone who works in tempera.

Working in a huge building full of faceless cubicles and office drones as I do, I can relate to his stuff.

MP3 players are the technological innovation of our age, don't let anyone bullshit you.  "Surreal" is a good way to describe the act of viewing the mind-numbing blandness of office life while early Siouxsie and the Banshees is piped into your head.
