  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    CD copy of the album in card wallet. 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 immediate download of 10-track album in your choice of high-quality MP3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire

    Includes unlimited streaming of Bring the Happy via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

We're dancing at the Mecca
It's gone now
We're dancing the Gay Gordons
It's gone now

We're dancing at the Mecca
It's gone now
I'm here now with my best friends
They're gone now

Step one and I glide by
I make damn sure that you see
Step two this is just bliss
To be swept up in your stride
And the night was everything

This is where we first met
This dance floor
Strange that I'm in black dress
On this dance floor

I came in through the front line
Unnoticed
With a boot lace as a neck tie
For your kiss

Step one and I glide by
I make damn sure that you see
Step two this is just bliss
To be swept up in your stride
And the night was everything
Step three Oh well who'd tell
That a half life would fly by
Boutiques stand where we'd meet
Now a half life has gone by

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...
