Good Fruit – Single

Good Fruit

Originally released 14th August 2000.

‘Our most successful song from our most successful album’, muses Darren. Featuring vocals from Amelia Fletcher (whose indie pedigree includes Talulah Gosh, Heavenly, Marine Research and Tender Trap), the single achieved substantial radio play and was packaged as a 2 CD edition: disc 1 included the home-recorded b-sides, ‘Jubilee’ and the instrumental ‘Blackhorse Road’, while disc 2 featured ‘I Will Make Her Love Me’ and ‘Seafaring’. The 7-inch included two remixes by The Wisdom of Harry and Piano Magic.

The Greedy Ugly People – Single

Greedy Ugly People

Originally released 2nd October 2000.

Darren’s favourite Hefner song for its ‘simplicity of lyric and sentiment, but done in an original way’. The double CD edition featured, on CD-1, the b-sides ‘Milkmaids’ and ‘Kate Cleaver’s House’, and ‘Everything’s Falling Apart’ and ‘Don’t Give Up On Us Babe’ (a David Soul cover) on CD-2, while the 7-inch included two remixes by Baxendale (a band previously released by Darren on his now-defunct label Evil World) and Electric Sound of Joy. A rare twelve-inch also exists featuring a longer version of Baxendale’s mix.
