Darren Hayman is a thoughtful, concise and detailed songwriter. He eschews the big, the bright and the loud for the small, twisted, and lost. For 15 years, and over 14 albums, Hayman has taken a singular and erratic route through England's tired and heartbroken underbelly. Hayman was influenced by punk through his art college years, but throughout the '90s he was inspired by American lo-fi indie-rock. A chance meeting with John Peel favourites New Bad Things and shows with them in London and Portland USA taught Darren the DIY ethic and soon he was self-releasing records by his first band, Hefner.
Hefner's first records attracted the attention of cult indie label Too Pure and the broadcasting legend John Peel. The band's first album, Breaking God's Heart (1998), mixed raw, sexual words with religious imagery and earned the band a loyal, intelligent following in the UK, Europe and the USA. He'll be performing this seminal album solo and in full on its 20th anniversary.
