  • 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.

Outside in the autumn light
A child slides up a riverside
Jump for joy and you're doubled with pain
Both at once it's sublime I'd say
All you'll need is here

Outside in the puddles and rain
A child soaked to the bone again
Heart melts but your stomach sinks
Both at once it's sublime I think
All you'll need is here

Pulling apart around and back and forth
How can a heart take this tug of war?
Every day is your best and worst
Every hour is a peak and trough
All you'll need is...
Smallest thing makes you feel the most
A couple kiss in the Evening Post
All of this you'll be going through
God knows I'm so jealous of you
All you'll need is here

Leave us now and go and hide away
That's what I'd do with my time again
Jump for joy and you're doubled with pain
Both at once it's sublime I'd say
All you'll need is here

Lucky soul...off you go

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...
