  • Compact Disc (CD)

    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

Bring me some moonlight
And in these long nights
We'll play all night on Dodgem Cars
Bring me my sparkler
Out on Woodhouse Moor
We'll gather stars in bucketfuls

We'll stroll, enrich our souls
In 300,000 yards
Then we can bless all gracelessness
With the love of old Hyde Park
We'll stroll enrich our souls
In a green and pleasant land
This city's mess can try its best
'gainst the might of old Hyde Park

Did summer acquiesce
To days of uselessness
Play all night on dodgem cars
And did we not roll
Our drunken way back home
To the roads and lanes of Headingley

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
