Best album/starting point?
it is a very good set of songs
is my favourite.
Fidelty Wars is classic - beauiful record, b sides one is ok but after a while as songs not as goos his voice grates on me a bit
Hefner Brain is really good, where angels play their drum machines is cool and that baggage reclaim song, I love the keyboard sounds with it, really cool, wondering why the girl inside she loves you do, the hoiday is over etc...
then chronologically !
Since The Fidelity Wars is second anyway, I'll do that. Thanks.
albums are going to be re-released sometime (this year maybe) with bonus tracks etc.
So maybe start with the best of and then get the re-issuses.
afford for him to do this.
and then We Love The City, which has Painting & Kissing - my favourite Hefner song.
although We Love The City is my favourite album.
I've never got hold of Breaking God's Heart (think it's deleted now) although it says above it'll be released so that's probably true
Darren has bought the rights back from Too Pure and is supposedly sticking an extra disc on the end of everything for eventual reissue. I'd go chronologically too, incorporating Boxing Hefner.
the version of Twisting Mary's Arm on that. When he plays it live it sounds so much better. I wish I could find a live recording of it because it's a great song, it's just the production on the album version is horrible.
an excellent 'best of Hefner' mix CD by Sophie at ATP. They really are pretty awesome.
