Christian Girls – Single

Christian Girls

Originally released April 2000 on Too Pure.

Released on CD and 7-inch with the b-sides ‘We Don’t Care What They Say About Us’ and ‘The Fear’ (omitted from the 7-inch), the single version of ‘Christian Girls’ represents the third recording of the song; having signed Hefner on the basis of its original recording, Too Pure placed pressure on the band to re-record it as a single. After recording ‘More Christian Girls’ (the same song with different lyrics), the band relented and released the final version of the single, which would subsequently appear on Boxing Hefner.

Revelations! – EP



Originally released January 2000 on Top Dog Recordings.


Recorded live from one of the band’s Peel Sessions, Revelations! is a four-track EP of gospel covers, inspired by bassist John Morrison’s habit of playing tapes of gospel songs on the band’s tour bus. John himself selected the soul-influenced ‘Nobody Knows (The Trouble I See)’ and ‘Dragnet For Jesus’; Darren chose the folkier tracks ‘He Got Better Things For You’ and ‘Turkle Dove’.
