Amy S. They really sound like they're having a ball letting their creativity run wild here. Sometimes when I listen to it I just marvel and laugh at how brilliant this album is. The variety of collaborating artists makes for an eclectic sound indeed. (Seriously, Dress You Up sounds NOTHING like H&S - in a really good way.) At the same time H&S are definitely the glue that holds this thing together, meaning the overall sound is not only eclectic, but solid and cohesive. Favorite track: Dress You Up.

Steve Lawson not a single weak track on here. Pulling together their amazing collaborative covers project. All so so great. Favorite track: A Good Heart.

Wind in the Willows It's very hard to choose a favourite, as these cover versions are all quite brilliant. And ingenious. And brilliant. "Vol. 1" suggests there will be more - which is good! Favorite track: Keep the Customer Satisfied.

Richard Harrison (@mr_spoon) When H&S can create songs as good as these (with a video) in one day...Lady Gaga can suck her own balls. Favorite track: Won't Back Down.
Neil Sumner

Neil Sumner I absolutely love this album. Hard to pick a favourite...."Addicted to love"- THE definitive version (sorry Robert). "Ghostbusters" - try not to smile when you play it, I dare you . "I'd do it all again" - wow, goosebumps every time. She Makes War on gritty double bass...oh, just buy it.

about

A fan-chosen cover version, recorded in collaboration with another musical artist and a video artist - made and released within a day. You can see the videos, read the live-blogs, view the "directors' commentary" and find out much more at www.hopeandsocial.co.uk/crypt-covers/ - but this is the album. Hope you love it.

NB - Please note that the although everything we do is normally on a Pay What You Want basis, for Crypt Covers Vol. 1, to ensure that the original writers get paid, we have to set a minimum cost for the download.

We're also paying all our collaborators on a straight profit split on this - so the pie is getting divided 30 ways (10x guest artist, 10x videographers, 10x H&S), so if you can drop a few extra quid in the pot, that'll go towards paying us and our musical and videographic collaborators ... plus we shelled out a grand on food for the bands who came to visit... and we've worked - admittedly it's not like working down th'pit like, but work nevertheless, long days. So if you can, dig deep and pay what you think it's worth.

Thankin' yoooou!

about

Hope and Social Leeds

In the tradition of the travelling bands, we guess we’re a bit like a Yorkshire E-Street Band...meets Arcade Fire...meets The Faces…meets Dexys Midnight Runners…meets Prefab Sprout…at a party...in an argument about who gets to have sex with David Bowie. We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...

Track Name: Hope and Social with Ellen and the Escapades - Addicted to Love
Your lights are on, but you're not home
Your mind is not your own
Your heart sweats, your body shakes
Another kiss is what it takes
You can't sleep, you can't eat
There's no doubt, you're in deep
Your throat is tight, you can't breathe
Another kiss is all you need
Ohh oohh

You like to think that you're immune to the stuff...oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough
You know you're gonna have to face it
You're addicted to love

You see the signs, but you can't read
You're runnin' at a different speed
You heart beats in double time
Another kiss and you'll be mine, a one track mind
You can't be saved
Oblivion is all you crave
If there's some left for you
You don't mind if you do
Ohh oohh

You like to think that you're immune to the stuff
It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough
You know you're gonna have to face it
You're addicted to love

Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love

Your lights are on, but you're not home
Your will is not your own
Your heart sweats and teeth grind
Another kiss and you'll be mine
Ohh oohh

You like to think that you're immune to the stuff
It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough
You know you're gonna have to face it
You're addicted to love

Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Track Name: Hope and Social with She Makes War - Dress You Up
You've got style, that's what all the girls say
Satin sheets and luxuries so fine
All your suits are custom made in London
But I've got something that you'll really like

Gonna dress you up in my love
All over, all over
Gonna dress you up in my love
All over your body

Feel the silky touch of my caresses
They will keep you looking so brand new
Let me cover you with velvet kisses
I'll create a look that's made for you

Gonna dress you up in my love, in my love
All over your body, all over your body
In my love
All over, all over
From your head down to your toes
Track Name: Hope and Social with Sam Airey - Won't Back Down
Well I won't back down, no I won't back down
You could stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down

Gonna stand my ground, won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down
Gonna stand my ground and I won't back down

Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won't back down

Well I know what's right, I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
But I'll stand my ground and I won't back down

Hey baby there ain't no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won't back down
Track Name: Hope and Social with Chris Helme - A Good Heart
I hear a lot of stories
I suppose they could be true
All about love and what it can do to you

Highest risk of striking out
The risk of getting hurt
And still I have so much to learn

Well, I know
'Cause I think about it all the time
I know
That real love has quite a price

And a good heart
These days, is hard to find
(A good heart)
True love, the lasting kind

A good heart
These days, is hard to find
So please be gentle with this heart of mine

My expectations may be high
I blamed it on my youth
Soon enough
I'll learned the painful truth

I'll face it like a fighter
Then boast of how I've grown
Anything is better
Than being alone

Well, I know
'Cause I learn a little every day
I know
'Cause I listen when the experts say

That a good heart
These days, is hard to find
(A good heart)
True love, the lasting kind

A good heart
These days, is hard to find
So please be gentle with this heart of mine

As I look back
On all my childhood dreams
My ideas of love weren't
As foolish as they seemed

If I don't start looking now
I'll be left behind
And a good heart these days
It's hard to find

Well, I know
It's a dream I'm willing to defend
I know
It will all be worth it in the end

And a good heart
These days, is hard to find
(A good heart)
True love, the lasting kind

A good heart
These days, is hard to find
So please be gentle with this heart of mine

And a good heart
These days, is hard to find
(A good heart)
True love, the lasting kind

A good heart
These days, is hard to find
So please be gentle with this heart
With this heart of mine

A good heart, a good heart
A good heart, a good heart
A good heart, a good heart
A good heart
Track Name: Hope and Social with Louis Barabbas and The Bedlam Six - Keep the Customer Satisfied
Gee but it's great to be back home
Home is where I want to be.
I've been on the road so long my friend,
And if you came along I know you couldn't disagree.

It's the same old story everywhere I go,
I get slandered, libeled,
I hear words I never heard in the Bible
And I'm one step ahead of the shoe shine
Two steps away from the county line
Just trying to keep my customers satisfied,
Satisfied.

Deputy Sheriff said to me
Tell me what you come here for, boy.
You better get your bags and flee.
You're in trouble boy, and now you're heading into more.

It's the same old story everywhere I go,
I get slandered, libeled,
I hear words I never heard in the Bible
And I'm one step ahead of the shoe shine
Two steps away from the county line
Just trying to keep my customers satisfied,
Satisfied.

Track Name: Hope and Social with Duke Special - Golden Brown
Golden brown texture like sun
Lays me down with my mind she runs
Throughout the night
No need to fight
Never a frown with golden brown

Every time just like the last
On her ship tied to the mast
To distant lands
Takes both my hands
Never a frown with golden brown

Golden brown finer temptress
Through the ages she's heading west
From far away
Stays for a day
Never a frown with golden brown

Never a frown
With golden brown
Never a frown
With golden brown
Track Name: Hope and Social with The Traveling Band - Rebel Rebel
You've got your mother in a whirl
She's not sure if you're a boy or a girl
Hey babe, your hair's alright
Hey babe, let's go out tonight
You like me, and I like it all
We like dancing and we look divine
You love bands when they're playing hard
You want more and you want it fast
They put you down, they say I'm wrong
You tacky thing, you put them on

Rebel rebel, you've torn your dress
Rebel rebel, your face is a mess
Rebel rebel, how could they know?
Hot tramp, I love you so!

You've got your mother in a whirl cause she's
Not sure if you're a boy or a girl
Hey babe, your hair's alright
Hey babe, let's stay out tonight
You like me, and I like it all
We like dancing and we look divine
You love bands when they're playing hard
You want more and you want it fast
They put you down, they say I'm wrong
You tacky thing, you put them on

Rebel rebel, you've torn your dress
Rebel rebel, your face is a mess
Rebel rebel, how could they know?
Hot tramp, I love you so!

Rebel rebel, you've torn your dress
Rebel rebel, your face is a mess
Rebel rebel, how could they know?
Hot tramp, I love you so!

You've torn your dress, your face is a mess
You can't get enough, but enough ain't the test
You've got your transmission and your live wire
You got your cue line and a handful of ludes
You wanna be there when they count up the dudes
And I love your dress
Youre a juvenile success
Because your face is a mess
So how could they know?
I said, how could they know?

So what you wanna know
Calamity's child,
Where do you wanna go?
What can I do for you? looks like you've been there too
Cause you've torn your dress
And your face is a mess
Oh, your face is a mess
Oh, oh, so how could they know?
Eh, eh, how could they know?
Eh, eh
Track Name: Hope and Social with Merz - Old Town (This boy is crackin' up)
The girl's a fool
She broke the rule
She hurt him hard
This time you will break down
She's lost his trust
And so she must
All is lost
The system has broke down

Romance has broke down
This boy is crack'in up
This boy has broke down

She plays it hard
She plays it tough
But that's enough
The love is over
She's broke his heart and that is rough
But in the end you'll soon recover

The romance is over
This boy is crack'in up
This boy has broken down
This boy is crack'in up
This boy has broke down

I've been spending my money
In the old town
It's not the same honey
When you're not around
I've been spending my time
In the old town
I sure miss you honey
Now you're not around
Now you're not around
This old town

This boy is crack'in up
This boy has broken down
This boy is crack'in up
This boy has broke down
This boy is crack'in up
This boy has broken down
This boy is crack'in up
This boy has broke down
This boy is crack'in up
This boy has broken down
This boy is crack'in up
This boy has broke down
Track Name: Hope and Social with Dancing Years - I'd Do It All Again
Ooh, you’re searching for something I know,
won’t make you happy
Ooh, you’re thirsting for something I know,
won’t make you happy
Ooh, you did it all again, you broke another skein
It’s hard to believe this time, hard to believe
That my heart, my heart’s an open door
You got all you came for, baby
So weary, someone to love is bigger than your pride’s worth
Is bigger than the pain you got for it hurts
And out runs all of the sadness
It’s terrifying, life, through the darkness

And I’d do it all again, I’d do it all again
I’d do it all again, I’d do it all again
You try sometimes but it won’t stop
You got my heart and my head’s lost, ooh yeah
I’ve been burning down these candles for love, for love
So weary, someone to love is bigger than your pride
Ooh, someone to love, mm, someone to love
Someone to love
Ooh, you’re searching for something I know,
won’t make you happy
Ooh
