  • 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.

Written for the Bring the Happy shows in Stockton in November 2013. Stockton has been the only town so far in Bring the Happy's Journey around the UK with more memories on the high street than on the hospital. In the 50's and 60's everyone played the Globe,and the Beatles were playing the day Kennedy was assassinated and news of his death was announced over the tannoys to a packed high street full of Beatles Fans.

Recorded live on just 4 mics at the Arc in Stockton this is a digital only download and is not included on the CD copy of the album.


from Bring the Happy, released March 11, 2013
Recorded and mixed by Craig Rothery




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
