Fortunately Darren is not a picture hanger — he is a modern day minstrel whose tunes have been of a consistently above-average standard.
Darro's habit for knocking out corkers is quite clear on his new album 'Secret Codes & Battleships' (pre-order details here if you're in the mood for purchasing it) but the decentness of this album is not what we are all here today today discuss.
What we are in fact here for is a competition in which you and one friend can go and see Darren do a special performance in London on September 28. The performance will be acoustic (!) and two songs long (?!) and will take place in the screening room of a posho members club. We have also been advised that "he will probably stay and talk to people for a little bit".
There will only be 35 people in the room and they will all be media idiots except you and your friend, so this is quite the prize for a Darren Hayes fan or, let's be honest, any fan of music and/or the concept of sound itself.
To win, we would like you to email [email protected] with your favourite cake recipe. The winner will be the person whose cake recipe looks the nicest. The competition closes at 6pm tomorrow (Friday).
While we've got you, let's watch the 'Bloodstained Heart' video.[youtube]NZlFIKYIegg[/youtube]
