It’s finally here. The throne has been claimed. For years, all the fans of the best pop waited anxiously for that group that was going to occupy the space left between THE PIPETTES, LUCKY SOUL and BELLE & SEBASTIAN, heirs of the best pop from the sixties (THE SHIRELLES, THE RONETTES, THE SUPREMES...) and the best Scottish pop (CAMERA OBSCURA, BMX BANDITS...). But it’s finally here, “Loveless Unbeliever”, the debut album of THE SCHOOL. And the Cardiff band, after the singles “Let It Slip” and “All I Wanna Do”, with which they conquered the critics and the public half the world over, in addition to creating uncommonly high expectations, have shown us that they’re the perfect spearhead of a sound that, even today, continues to thrill us. Once again with the production of Ian Catt (SAINT ETIENNE, TREMBLING BLUE STARS, THE FIELD MICE, SHAMPOO, THE BOO RADLEYS…), they demonstrate their incredible ability with melodies and arrangements, releasing an album with more gems than a jewelry store, like “Valentine”, “Is He Really Coming Home”, “I Want You Back” and “Hoping and Praying”, songs that are uncontestable candidates to remain perennially in our stereos.

Track Name: Let It Slip
An apology for today, an apology for a lifetime
My loveless unbeliever, he’s better than the rest

And if you ever leave me, would you go straight to her?
Or is it so easy living on your, living on your own without me baby

Your first was a masterpiece, your second was just genius
But third seemed like mirrors of what had gone before

And if you ever leave me, would you go straight to her?
Or is it so easy living on your, living on your own without me baby

(Slip, let it slip) Oo just say it (Slip, let it slip) I just wanna know
(Slip, let it slip) if you really love her – come on, come on oo boy tell me
(Slip, let it slip) Oo just say it (Slip, let it slip) I just wanna know
(Slip, let it slip) if you really love her – come on, come on oo boy tell me

And if you ever leave me, would you go straight to her?
Or is it so easy living on your, living on your own without me baby

(Slip, let it slip) Oo just say it (Slip, let it slip) I just wanna know
(Slip, let it slip) if you really love her – come on, come on oo boy tell me
(Slip, let it slip) Oo just say it (Slip, let it slip) I just wanna know
(Slip, let it slip) if you really love her – come on, come on oo boy tell me
Track Name: Is He Really Coming Home?
Is he really coming home?
Cross my fingers and my toes
Is he really coming back, coming back for me?

Cos I've been waiting oh-so long
And he's still the only one
Is he really coming back, coming back for me?

Oh well it's been such a long time
Don't you think so baby?
You know it's gonna be a good year
Don't you think so baby?
Track Name: Valentine
Have you ever wondered, baby, how life could be?
Spend some time in some far off places, spend some time with me
Get out of the hole you’re in and come on out and see

So won’t you tell me that you’ll think about it
I really need to hear about it
You know she doesn’t understand you baby, she’s never gonna let you be
So won’t you tell me that you’ll think about it
I really need to hear about it
You know she doesn’t understand you baby
She’s never gonna let you be her valentine
Track Name: I Want You Back
Once upon a time I thought everything would turn out fine, just like lines in books
Now I see I’m caught, caught up in a tangled web
All the things you said I bought, like a fool I’d shout it loud, “I don’t care what they say” And now it’s clear that all of it was make believe

Now and then I think, now and then I think too much about you in my sleep, about you in my sleep

And when the dreams have all come back and settled down
And the stupid nightmares hang around
With the visions of the one you’re with now
I know I tried to get you out my broken mind
And to leave the past we have behind
But it’s no use wishing now for things like that, I want you back

Well I really truly tried in the way you’d want me to, and never do you harm
I see it couldn’t last cos of what I said to you
And you knew it all along, you couldn’t have just said to me “I don’t care about it”, no you Couldn’t say “Hey girl just leave it all behind”

Well now and then I think, now and then I think too much about you in my sleep, about You in my sleep

And when the dreams have all come back and settled down
And the stupid nightmares hang around
With the visions of the one you’re with now
I know I tried to get you out my broken mind
And to leave the past we have behind
But it’s no use wishing now for things like that, I want you back
Track Name: Is It True?
The boy I knew before
Would never have done that
The boy I knew before
Would always treat me right

So I can't believe what they've started saying about you

Is it true what they say? Cos I don't wanna be alone
Is it true what they say? Cos I don't wanna be alone

The boy I knew before
Brought flowers every day
The boy I knew before
Would never ever stray

So I can't believe what they're whispering about you

Is it true what they say? Cos I don't wanna be alone
Is it true what they say? Cos I don't wanna be alone
Track Name: I Love Everything
I, I love everything
Almost everything about you, I do
And I, I'd do anything
Almost anything just to hold you, it's true

And if you'd hold my hand
And let me in your life I know
That you would be the only one
It wouldn't be the worst idea

Oh and I, I'd do anything
Almost anything just to hold you, it's true
I'd do anything

I, I love everything
Almost everything about you, I do
I love everything
Track Name: Can't Understand
I can't understand the reason why you knock-a-knock upon my door
I can't understand the reason why you wanna wanna see me more

You can't pretend, it's happening again
I've no sympathy, it's happening again
Track Name: The One Who Left Me
I tried, but it wasn't enough
Really tried, but it just wasn't enough
And now he's with somebody new
But I still hear him call my name

He's the one who left me, yeah
He's the one who left me, yeah
He broke my heart and now he's back
But I just haven't the time
For the one who left me

He's the one who left me, yeah
He's the one who left me, yeah
He broke my heart and I almost died
But I just haven't the time
For the one who left me

He said that he would always be true
And he's never let me go
How could I have ever been so foolish back then?
Yeah yeah yeah
He said that he would always stay
And he'd never ever leave
But when I got home one day all his things were gone
Gone gone gone gone
Track Name: Hoping And Praying
Hoping and praying and wishing
That maybe he is thinking and dreaming of me

I don't wanna have to tell him so
That I don't ever let him go, oh no no
It breaks my heart to see him
It breaks my heart to see him alone

Every time that he walks by (alone)
He's the kind of boy that looks real shy, oh my my
It breaks my heart to see him
It breaks my heart, and so I'm

Hoping and praying and wishing
That maybe he is thinking and dreaming of me
And one day I can
Hold him and kiss him and squeeze him, and tell him that I'm
Thinking and dreaming of him

Maybe I should run away
Settle down in some old sunny town far, far away
Cos I don't wanna make a fool
Out of me for the third time (fifth time) seventh time (eighth time)

I don't wanna have to tell him so
that I don't ever let him go, oh no no
It breaks my heart to see him
It breaks my heart to see him alone

Every time that he walks by (alone)
He's the kind of boy that looks real shy, oh my my
It breaks my heart to see him
It breaks my heart, and so I'm

Hoping and praying and wishing
That maybe he is thinking and dreaming of me
And one day I can
Hold him and kiss him and squeeze him, and tell him that I'm
thinking and dreaming of him

Hoping and praying
Track Name: Summer’s Here
Something says you’re reading all the thoughts in my head, but I can’t tell
It’s not about the way you look at me as a mess, cos I don’t mind

The summer’s here and there’s nothing you can do
Say you’ll come out and we’ll love it

Something says you think you’re better off elsewhere, but I don’t care
It makes me feel like tearing you away from inside to where it’s at

The summer’s here and there’s nothing you can do
Say you’ll come out, we’ll go some place, some place new
Summer’s here and there’s nothing you can do
Say you’ll come out and we’ll love it
Track Name: Shoulder
I try to ignore you and not to adore you
And shout from the skies that I wanna just hold you
But I feel afraid that you’ll think I’m just foolish
And laugh til the tears start to roll down our faces

But will you give me a shoulder to lean on?
And will you give me a shoulder to lean on?
Cos I can’t keep up my head with just two

I try to convince you she’s not that essential
It’s just cos you want undivided attention
So I grow impatient to know how you’re feeling
I won’t be content til you show me you mean it

But will you give me a shoulder to lean on?
And will you give me a shoulder to lean on?
Cos I can’t keep up my head with just two

I try to ignore you and not to adore you
And shout from the skies that I wanna just hold you

But will you give me a shoulder to lean on?
And will you give me a shoulder to lean on?
Cos I can’t keep up my head with just two
Track Name: All I Wanna Do
I don’t wanna have to hang around this crowd no more in this place again
Everybody thinks they’re having fun getting wrecked up and making wrecked up friends

All I wanna do is hang around with you, if you want me to
All I wanna do is hang around with you, let’s go home

I don’t wanna have to work the week in boredom we can just carry on
Watching people we know falling down, like drunken clowns
And come unstuck, undone

All I wanna do is hang around with you, if you want me to
All I wanna do is hang around with you, let’s go home
Track Name: I Don’t Believe In Love
You’ve really got me this time
It’s too late to leave
And neither of us wants to go home
But as we’re here let’s face the situation
Let me explain, I don’t believe in love

Tonight there’s no-one else above us
It’s just you and me
And all the idiots hanging around
Don’t have a clue what they’re trying to prove now
I soon realise I don’t believe in love until we dance

Well I, I think you’d better stop there
You hold my hand
It makes me wanna cry
Let’s take a vow
Don’t underestimate it
We both know it’s true, we don’t believe in love

And there’s nothing you can do about it
It’s unconditional, it’s unforgivable
There’s nothing you can do to stop it
Not anymore

Well I, I think you’d better stop there
You hold my hand
It makes me wanna cry
Let’s take a vow
Don’t underestimate it
We both know it’s true, we don’t believe in love

But you’ve gotta admit
It was as good as it gets
But don’t give yourself away
I don’t need anyone, no no no no

But you’ve gotta admit
It was as good as it gets
But don’t give yourself away
I don’t need anyone, no no no no
