Boxer's Blood

from by Hope and Social

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    A lovely CD with a bear on it presented inside a bespoke card wallet, designed inside the House of Hope and paid for with the tears of folkie singers. Go on, you'll treasure it for days.

    As usual it's pay what you want or pay what you think it's worth...the minimum price of £1.60 literally only covers the cost of the physical production of the CD and you get a link to the download with your receipt so you can download and listen straight away! We want people to have this album, to enjoy it and to share it around but obviously we're also trying to make ends meet. So if you're not so flush at the moment just pay the £1.60...or just download the digital version below for whatever you want to pay. Even free - we don't even ask for your email address.

    If you feel moved to maybe float us a bit more then as ever, we do very much appreciate it. It's a fairly simple equation... your money makes this music.

    Includes unlimited streaming of All Our Dancing Days via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

I went out as you came back in
My day ends where yours begins
There's money in the kitchen draw
Half there now, I'll try find more

I woke up in a fug and fog
The grinding of the diesel cogs
The days fly by with all these signs
Show me what I've left behind

You came in as I went back out
We're ships that pass and there's no doubt
We'll find a day in two weeks' time
We'll lose ourselves in cheap red wine

These walls, these walls are crumbling round my balls
These door are slamming one by one
There's a boxer's blood in my veins
There's a boxer's blood in my veins

I'm doing the sums, I'm doing the sums
But something is wrong yeah, well something is wrong
I'm making a list and I'm checking it twice
No matter what changes a price is a price
God gave me a brain and a good set of eyes
But these forms and these boxes seem peppered with lies
I don't want to cheat and I don't want to scrounge
But I did what you told me I did what you told me
I'm doing the sums, I'm checking it twice
No matter what changes a price is a price
I don't want to cheat and I don't want to scrounge
But I did what you told me I did what you told me

These walls, these walls are crumbling round my balls
These door are slamming one by one
There's a boxer's blood in my veins
There's a boxer's blood in my veins

I went out as you came back in
My day ends where yours begins

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...

"a big sound from this impressive outfit...inspired, anthemic, great" - Q magazine
