I heard of Darren Hayman on one of the mailorder sites either Darla or Tonevender (check em out if you have time). Something about the description made me think it’d be just perfect and I was right.
Apparently Darren was in some protracted contract dispute with Too Pure over his previous band The French, when he recorded these songs in his wife’s dad’s caravan, literally in the caravan (for the non europeans out there that would be a trailor).
Caravan Songs is a 4 song ep available now on Static Caravan Records. If you’ve got a fast connection here’s a link to the video Darren shot for the song “Caravan”. There was a fifth song left off the 7″ ep because of space limitations it was “Victim Song”.
