As a drummer for Hefner, which Peel was a fan of, Ant's music was played by the DJ between 1999 and 2000. He also recorded a solo session for Peel's show during the summer of 2000, featuring 4 acoustic versions of songs that would later appear on his debut album. The debut album, a collection of London home recordings called A Long Way To Blow A Kiss, was quietly released in 2002 on Fortune and Glory Records.
