darren hayman and papernut cambridge

Am I the only one who thinks it should be the law of the land that Darren Hayman should at least commit to releasing at least one record a week, that said no sooner do we fondly despatch his latest for Static Caravan – as the Hayman Kupa band – then along comes another that finds him stepping out from behind stick duties for Papernut Cambridge for a ridiculously limited 7 inch twin set for fortuna pop – and sporting a rather eye catching sleeve whilst pressed on purple wax no less – and found here covering Paul Jones’ ‘I’ve been a bad bad boy’. I don’t know about you but this little gem puts a little razzmatazz into an ailing pop currency that’s sadly bloated, non-descript and seemingly devoid of the notion of fun these days, indelibly festooned in a 70’s vintage and gorging itself on a panoramic bubble grooving showered in sepia trimmings with a distinct MOR / glam tinged oompah to its tapestry, this honey comes caressed and smoothed in an easy pop dusting that’s just the right side of cheesy (blimey that’ll get the Hefnet readership furiously scribbling letters of complaint). The video it should be said is a hoot – Mr Hayman dressed in a penguin onesie – really can it get any dafter we wonder. We’re off in search of the latest Papernut Cambridge album ‘Love the things your lover loves’ a corker by all accounts while Mr Hayman is shortly to release a no doubt turntable cranking beauty for the esteemed Static Caravan entitled ‘trains’ (a picture disc no less).
