With nods back to sixties & seventies artists; this sound feels timeless nevertheless.
The production is stellar and the Horns are used to perfection.

"25th ELEFANT RECORDS ANNIVERSARY" COLLECTION 008

Continuing with our planned re-releases in honor of Elefant Record’s 25th anniversary, this time we have the debut album of Wales’ THE SCHOOL, whose “Loveless Unbeliever” will be re-released as a 500-copy limited-edition vinyl, changing the red color of the original for green, both for the album cover as well as the vinyl color. Another coveted out-of-print album from Elefant is coming back into circulation in limited edition.

In that not-so-far-away 2010, THE SCHOOL were already one of the most promising new groups. With two magnificent singles like “All I Wanna Do” and “Let It Slip” in 2008, they made fans of groups like THE PIPETTES, CAMERA OBSCURA, and LUCKY SOUL focus on them, and the arrival of their first full-length was anxiously awaited. And when the album arrived in stores, it confirmed what those singles promised: ultra-melodic songs, agile and deliciously pop arrangements, chu-chu-ruchus and para-papas, prodigious wind instruments, and heavy echoes of the girl-groups of the sixties that we love so much. With the production work of the still totally essential Ian Catt (SAINT ETIENNE, TREMBLING BLUE STARS, THE FIELD MICE, SHAMPOO, THE BOO RADLEYS…), the group from Cardiff give us songs like “Valentine”, “Is He Really Coming Home?”, “I Want You Back” and “Hoping And Praying”, which we were already saying back then were unquestionably going to become an irresistible part of an unforgettable repertoire.

What’s more, with this limited re-release, two extra songs are included: “Tell Me” (which was included on the compilation album “Space Escapade (Aventura Espacial) Unit 1 - Destination: Pluto Sector 68”) and “Can You Feel It?” (B-side of the “Hoping And Praying” single, which was released after the album).

Maybe enough time hasn’t passed yet for us to realize how great “Loveless Unbeliever” really is, an album that made it half-way around the world, that was included on hundreds of best-of lists of the year, and that was mentioned and collected by some of the most prestigious media and personalities in the music world and in the cultural world in general. Listening to it again definitely comforts and stretches the echoes of its memory, where its songs continue to grow, day by day.

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

Well 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

Well 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 think that I can tell him so
That I don't wanna 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)
Track Name: Summer's Here
Something says you’re reading all the thoughts in my mind
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 you’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 you’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 town 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

All I wanna do is hang around with you, if you want me to
All I wanna do is hang around with you, is hang around with you
I wanna be 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
Track Name: Can You Feel It?
Ooh, Can you feel it? Ooh
When you kiss kiss kizza me
And I kiss kiss kizza you

Show me you care
One more time, we can overspend it
No-one else can show me like you
You know that it’s more than having a good time

Say that you’re mine
Like you said oh when we first met
It’s looking pretty good to me
We’ve got something more than just having a good time

Ooh, Can you feel it? Ooh
When you kiss kiss kizza me
And I kiss kiss kizza you
Track Name: Tell Me
I knew something wasn't right boy
When you last kissed me goodnight boy
And you turned around so quickly
Like your lips would never miss me

And you never called the next day
Nor the next to say you're ok
When I saw you with your friends out
You were so cold and left me distant

Don't disappear
Don't disappear

Tell me, are we through?
Tell me, are you still dreaming of me?
Are you saving all your kisses up for somebody new?
This is the time to make up your mind what to do
