Any album with a song called "Porn Shoes" and a track about Peter Gabriel in an airport has to be worth trying. It's a complete winner. Think Belle and Sebastian mixed with Pulp at their best and wittiest, all mixed up with a good dose of eighties kitch and catchy tunes. Truly refreshing. I don't know Hefner and bought it on the strength of the single that I heard on the radio, but every track's brilliant. If you buy this album you won't be able to put it down. I'm listening to it right now with a big grin on my face!

The French are the new incarnation of Hefner (or at least part of it and well, this isn't Hefner but it certainly is special. Gone (almost) are any guitars and drums, here the synths first seen prominantly on the album Dead Media take over. If you liked it when Hefner started branching into the electronic department then this is definetly for you, if you didn't then don't give it a second look. The lyrical content of the songs will be familiar to anyone who has listnened to Hefner but somehow here it lacks the raw bite. Still the first track, Porn Shoes, is a corker and for me only the last track was a let down

Darren, John and a dog, are the band known as 'The French'. This band fromed from Hefner have produced a most welcome debut album. I think 'Local Infomation' should not be compared to anything by hefner as indeed Darren and John's 'French' should not be compared to Hefner as a band. Too many people dwell on the fact that Darren has written so many great albums in the past. Instead they should concentrate on what a beaufitul record his new one is. It is indeed a collection of songs which are local to many of us in one way or another.
A new sound of electric pop poetry, full of the under appreiciated synth and brilliant writting. I found it quite easy to drift into the stories the songs create and at least relate to a few. I love this album because of it's wonderfuly humbling british-ness and it's empathy with suburbia.
Greatly reccomend it, thank god there's still good music.
