Song use[edit]

The track "Somebody Hurt You" was used in series 3, episode 1 of the BBC animation show Monkey Dust to link two different sketches in the show.[12] The juxtaposition of the light sounds of a song against the dark dystopian comedy of the program is a feature of Monkey Dust. The song "Heartache" was used in the Polish brothers' film For Lovers Only.
