In June 1996, Chris Evans discovered Something For The Weekend, the first single taken from the album, at a friend’s party. On the following Monday, during his Radio One broadcast, as he couldn’t find the CD, he phoned his friend and the song was played for the first time on the radio via the phone. It quickly became his Breakfast Biggie. The single hit the 14th place on UK charts, to stay 4 weeks ahead of release in the Top 50.

Amongst the B-sides is ‘Songs Of Love’ which became famous thanks to the Father Ted series, but this is not the actual theme music of the series.
