Pram Town was Darren Hayman's sixth album since disbanding Hefner in 2002, recorded with a folk orchestra featuring members of Ellis Island Sound, The Wave Pictures and Smile Down Upon Us. 'Losing My Glue' was co-written with Dave Tattersall from The Wave Pictures. 'Pram Town' is the affectionate name given to Harlow, Essex in the early 1950s. It was coined to reflect the sudden influx of young families to the 'New Town'. New Towns were designed for modern and future life and intended to be the antidote to the city. 'Pram Town' is a set of songs about someone who doesn't escape. A big fish in a little pond who is thrown a lifeline whilst fare-evading in a first class train carriage. This record is about good ideas gone bad. It's about high and low ambition and the gap between.
