FORMATS: 7" Single [Red Colour Vinyl] [Numbered Limited Edition of 500 copies] / Digital Single


Here at Elefant Records, we are absolute fans of HELEN LOVE, and it’s no secret. It’s not just because of their addictive, spot-on songs, but because we identify completely with their hedonistic, carefree, youthful philosphy that their lyrics and attitude give off. This new 7” limited-edition, red-vinyl single is new proof of just that. And if there’s any doubt, look at the title track, “Pogo Pogo”, a song composed with Ricardo Autobahn, a British producer specialized in remixes and mash-ups, who plays with the group in live shows. We see ourselves jumping and dancing like crazy in the first row while our beloved girls shout that “The first punk boy in Rome... And he plays bass guitar like Dee Dee Ramone” to the rhythm of crazed techno-pop.

The rest of the songs are every bit its equal, as you can image. “Make Up, Break Up” is an impetuous song full of humor about the moment of breaking up that has all of the styles that HELEN LOVE usually plays: punk, bubblegum, disco, indie-pop, and eighties sounds, with those amazing vocoders on the bridge. “Red Light” is one of the best pop-punk songs that we have heard in a long time, full of the anxiety and urgency to see a person you want to be with, that manages to get immediately inside your head and pierce your brain with those speedy guitars and Ramones spirit. Finally, the B-side closes with “Julie’s Got A New 7 Inch Single”... Yes, a song about the incredible pleasure of going to the store to buy a new vinyl, taking it out of the cover, and playing it for the first time. All of this is an invitation to listen to one of the best singles that HELEN LOVE has put out in their career. And their most steadfast fans already know that is saying a lot. Now, go enjoy!

Track Name: Pogo Pogo
The stars were shining brightly as the sun went down
There a magic feeling in the air and all around town
It’s time to meet the boy she loves who comes from Rome
Who smells of summer days and Hi Karate cologne

She held him for the first time on a Saturday Night
And took him by the hand and squeezed it tight, she said
There’s only one thing I wanna do with you
And I know what you want, cos I want it too
And we can do it all night...

Pogo pogo, hey my Italian boy
Pogo pogo, I’m gonna pogo with you
Pogo pogo, hey my Italian boy
Pogo pogo, I’m gonna pogo with you!

Inside the Sistine Chapel where the tourists go
Looking at the work of Michelangelo
She’s happy taking pictures on her mobile phone
Of the boy she’ll lead tonight into The Pleasuredome

The first time she saw him outside The Colosseum
She knew in her heart he was the perfect human being
The first punk boy in Rome...
The first punk boy in Rome...
And he plays the bass guitar like Dee Dee Ramone
Track Name: Make Up, Break Up
Can’t work out how long we’ve been together
All I know is it feels like forever
Were the TV shows still in black and white
Did you take me dancing on a Saturday night?
I can’t remember

Do we make up, do we break up, how do we shake it up?
How do we shake it, how do we make it... up

Everydays like the last day of Summer
There must be something that keeps us together
And what it is well I just can’t remember
Was it ever there, did we ever care?
Track Name: Red Light
Red light, I gotta hold on tight
Yellow light, now you are in sight
Green light, this is the perfect time
To fall in love with you!

Look left, look right
Hold tight, it’s alright

Well I’m counting down the hours till I see you again
(Can’t wait to be with you)
I got my foot to the floor, and I’m breaking the law
(Just got to be with you)

Give me your loving
Give me your heart
Give me your loving now
Right from the start

Turn the radio up, a little louder

I’m gonna rev right up to you

Chewing out a rhythm on my bubblegum
The sun is out and I want some
Chewing out a rhythm on my bubblegum
Your still the boy for me
Track Name: Julie's Got A New 7 Inch Single
You walk into the record shop
Can’t wait, to see what they got
You find a 7 inch single you’ve been looking for
Under a cardboard box

Now you get home from the record shop
And you shaking and your feeling hot
And you can’t wait to see what you’ve got
It’s the one you’ve been waiting for

I get it out of the bag
I take it out of the sleeve
I hold it up to the light

I got something to do
That’s much better than you
On a Saturday night

7 inch plastic, one sided fantastic
Colour sleeve collectible and always beautiful
I asked the boy from Lowdown Kids
He told me it’s worth 20 quid

Julie’s got a new 7 inch single
The worlds a better place today now

Pink vinyl, such a lovely shade
There were only 500 made
And the singers had them under his bed
For the last decade
