FORMATS: CD [SOLD OUT] / LP [SOLD OUT] / Digital Album

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

THE PRIBATA IDAHO’s third album shows a very self-assured band, sage and experienced but without losing the freshness every good pop band should always keep. They’ve achieved that good oldies sound bringing it closer and making it modern, timeless and eternal, like in the best classics. They’ve escaped the easy arrangements and classic structures, looking for the most suitable atmosphere to enhance the beauty of each melody, and Carlos Torero’s production lets us know the work they’ve done in composition, as the beautiful basslines on “Nowadays Hero”. In this song we find as well the very personal colaborationship by Murky and Guiller from eccentric popsters PATRULLERO MANCUSO, whilst another common friend, Olaf Ladousse from SOLEX, leaves the unmistakable mark of his homemade pedals by the end of “A Gentle Reminder”. Other guests in this record are Carlos Torero and David Gwynn in the exuberant eastern passage which comes after the restrained psychedelia of “Cows, Pigs, Wars And Witches”.

“A Gentle Reminder” shows a different psychedelia, optimistic and full of light this time, with an introduction in a pure delightful 60’s way. “Miseries Collector” is a mid-tempo arranged with a jazzy clarinet as that in “Nowadays Hero”, and “G” isn obsessive psychedelic rant coming back in its reprise “G Again”.

In spite of the pessimistic, wasted feeling which a few titles could transmit (“Miseries Collector”, “Mothers Of Destruction”...), it’s enough with one listen to the smiley introduction of “A Gentle Reminder” or the great chorus in “That Kind Of Pity” to see that the album’s title couldn’t be other than “Hope”, before a brilliant future for a band which has already become a legend in the Spanish pop history.

Track Name: That Kind Of Pity
I felt a kind of pity
And all that sort of things
I took the law into my own hands
And the events that led up to the war
I lay where I have fallen
It didn’t lie with me
I should like more time
I should like to know why

I felt it getting hot
A page littered with mistakes
But, just how many I don’t know
Because I told them to go away
I lay where I have fallen
It didn’t lie with me
I should like more time
I should like to know why

I’m not one to take things lying down
Although I live on hope

And even if
The words don’t fit
Together, I promise
I won’t walk away
That and nothing else
It’s all that I can say
But you don’t forget
I’ll do my level best

I felt about in the dark
Trailing behind broken dreams
Where the plants grow in the ground
Although everything’s really as it seems
I lay where I have fallen
It didn’t lie with me
I should like more time
I should like to know why

I’m not one to take things lying down
Although I live on hope

And even if
The words don’t fit
Together, I promise
I won’t walk away
That and nothing else
It’s all that I can say
But you don’t forget
I’ll do my level best
Track Name: Nowadays Hero
You could have got down on your knees
you could have said please
But you can’t get it right climbing
Over walls
At dead of night

You wouldn’t believe how much I cried
When I watched the law take another child
But you can’t get it right climbing
Over walls
At dead of night

Nowadays hero
You are less than zero
Sooner or later you will have to change

You made rich by publishing my songs
But love always came out wrong
But you can’t get it right climbing
Over walls
At dead of night

I’ll never forget all the good times
Although you’ve left me far behind
But I can’t get it right climbing
Over walls
At dead of night

Nowadays hero
You are less than zero
Sooner or later you will have to change
Track Name: Failures And Successes
The moon is over there
Covered up with sores
Lighting the sky from a wet hole
And closing the doors on the world

The moon is still over there
And I really don’t care
Who she had been with before
If she’s got a key to lock every door

But she’s laughing at you
And she’s waiting an answer from you soon

I guess you know by now
There’s a heaven waiting
For all good and bad lovers
Wrapped around broken flowers

But she’s...

And there’re no circles to go around
Like no miracles to be found
And there’re no failures called success
Like no water at the desert
Track Name: Cows, Pigs, Wars And Witches
Cows, pigs, wars and witches again
News hot from the fucking press
Humpbacked men balance on a knife edge
And a lot of questions of public interest

But they have been for...
As long as we have known
And they can take plenty of hard knocks

They would be able to laugh at themselves
But least of all would I wish to offend
Although that’s the kind of things I mean
Cows, pigs, wars, witches and press

But they have been for...
As long as we have known
And they can take plenty of hard knocks
Track Name: Tangerine Beer
I’m going on my hands and knees
The beer has a hold on me
And I see the game was up
Although I’d give my life
To know the reason why

I want to hit my head
Against a wall, because
I’m really sick at heart
Although I’d give my life
To know the reason why

My hair is frosted over
And my feet are like ice
But I go off into the desert
Although I’d give my life
To know the reason why

We can’t change the ground
Rules at this stage
They won
On their own
And I went the shortest way
Track Name: A Gentle Reminder
First one
Better than the last one
But they wouldn’t come inside
Come inside...

I can’t
Go by looks alone
But I should have done it long before
It long before

Where does it hurt you?
It’s only a gentle reminder
You can’t keep from wishing that...
They leave you till last
They leave you till last
Till last

Sad lights
Sad times, sad crimes
Wrong words I used to say
I used to say

No one
To ask, nowhere to go
We were lost and feeling low
And feeling low

Where does it hurt you?
It’s only a gentle reminder
You can’t keep from wishing that...
They leave you till last
They leave you till last
Till last
Track Name: Mothers Of Destruction
Mostly unseen
And you know it
The time is passing by
But don’t let it get you down
And save up all your pride

Sweet and odd
Follow the wind
And let me get the sadness
Like something I feel it mine
And it never seems to change

Mothers come, mothers go
And they’re gliding to the door
The party has...
The clock is ticking on
It’s late to get drunk
The party has begun

Lovely child
If you could hear
If you could see
Who takes a look around
And says there’s no way out

Which comes next?
Likes or dislikes
It’s hard to choose
But isn’t hard to find
A sad piece of news

Mothers come, mothers go
And they’re gliding to the door
The party has...
The clock is ticking on
It’s late to get a drunk
The party has begun
Track Name: Miseries' Collector
I came from the Bible land
The news damage me hard
But with my sins and mistakes
With my hard look and my pain
You can imagine how I felt
Terribly lonely out there
Trying to take my own faith

As near as I can recall
The fascist christ superstar
Didn’t believe it himself
And he was like everybody else
You can imagine how I felt
Terribly lonely out there
Trying to take my own faith

The big cross rolls on and on
And I admit I was wrong
The big cross rolls on and on
But I haven’t got that long
Track Name: G
Go against the tide
Forget your pain
And feel yourself
The voice of rain

Climb over a wall
But keep on the ground
You should become
Longer in your arms

When you’re so tired and all alone
And the words lose its meanings at all

Turn the world
With your magic wand
And cure yourself
Your open wound

When you’re so tired and all alone
And the words lose its meanings at all
Track Name: Between My Bones And Me Skin
Between my bones and my skin
There’s blood and there’s meat
There’s veins and also speed
And nothing more to see
Between my bones and my skin
There’s...
Needles and pills
But I don’t know how can it be
There’s...
Guts and tin
But there’s nothing that can gainfully be taken

Between my bones and my skin
Also there’s dreams and sea
There’s pain and there’s pith
And nothing more to feel
Between my bones and my skin
There’s...
Hammers and nails
But I don’t know how can it be
There’s...
Bullets and pitchs
But there’s nothing that can gainfully be taken
