Someone said to me the other day, when do you think people will stop putting ex-Hefner after your name? I don’t suppose they ever will, but I thought I’d do Pete a favour and not list the four (at least) great bands he has been.

Pete has been a friend of mine since about 98 but I’ve been a fan of his since about 88. It’s very strange to hear a voice that is instantly recognisable as your mate and one of your favourite artists. It’s an odd feeling.


from Darren Hayman & Fika Recordings advent calendar, released January 12, 2011
Pete Astor did the singing, guitar and bells. David Sheppard did everything else. Recorded at Westminster Studio by Alejandro Pelaez.
