[Intro music and imagery by Theberton.]

 

[00:42]

 

Hello again there, folks.

 

 

A few months ago I was walking past a village in Northumberland with my dog and I heard some sort of address, or sermon, being given. Most of the towns and villages in the North East have memorials and statues and plaques dedicated to their own pit disaster and this one was no different.

 

 

 

Mining disasters were so common in the north that the men and boys who worked down them used painted tin bait boxes for their lunch. If the shaft collapsed and they faced slow and gradual suffocation they could at least scratch their names and last goodbyes into the paint of the small metal tubs containing their sandwiches.

 


In this village was there a gathering of about 30-40 people standing solemnly in a light drizzle. A vicar was giving the address and a brass band provided the music.

 

 

I’d actually tried to do one of my off the cuff outdoors videos, but the weather wasn’t really helping me. So I decided to make a few notes and come back to the subject in the future. And well, here I am.

 

 

Because the fact is the little scene left a deep impact on me and I felt it was one of the most touching and sombre scenes I’d seen in a long, long time. The vicar was saying short prayers, and then the band would play, then the vicar would continue to address the villagers on their own history, and the long story of their little place in the world.

 

 

 

By the beginning of the 20th century mining disasters in the north of England, and in Wales, as well, were becoming too common and the loss of life too great to be ignored or downplayed any longer. The vicar recounted the various legal battles and formation and organization of Unions, which would eventually see something of an overhaul. In theory, anyway.

 

 

He then went on to speak of both World War 1 and World War to, and the affect it had on the village. Not in a bombastic way. Nor in the crass, postmodern, memery of the internet today.

 

 

The wars, especially the first, were an ordeal and a tragedy on the personal level of families, before they were grand civilization changing events, or geopolitical earthquakes.

 

 

And so what this little gathering in the drizzle really represented, without irony, or putting on a show, or being over the top, in a real and genuine way, was blood, soil, and spirit. Even I felt like an outsider, and I’m only from a few miles down the road.

 

The people in the village had a collective story, history, and shared identity. But here, through the local vicar, it was being retold and reinforced. All of this is the opposite of what is today’s norm, which is atomizing, alienating, disconnected, and rootless!

 

But also this sombre scene hadn’t been deconstructed, or retooled, or politicized and weaponized by cynical mind-benders in academia and the media.

 

 

And what struck me most of all, was the brass band. The brass band, which is usually associated with Yorkshire, became synonymous with working class movements around labour and unions.

 

When I was a boy we still had jazz bands marching down the streets in full uniform. I never used to like the music because so much of it sounded miserable and slow. It didn’t have the artistry or romanticism of proper classical music, as I saw it anyway.

 

Brass bands were an activity of working men, not maestros. And it was encouraged by captains of industry as a way to keep them occupied in something which is a little bit more safe than politics.

 

Nimrod, Abide by Me, and Danny Boy, may not have the technical wizardry, or grandiose statements of a Beethoven or Wagner, but they do have something, something very special, and very British.

 

The elephant in the room I think I should point to here is, of course, nostalgia. Nostalgia seems to be built into the brass band style and even seemed so in the past. In fact, even the more militaristic tunes have a tint of nostalgia to them.

 

 

On my monthly classic movies streams with Endeavour, we often discuss old movies which centre on the wars of the British Empire. Whether Zulu, Man Who Would Be King, or Lawrence of Arabia, the brass band gets aired heavily, but also mixed in with the local music.

 

Stories of British men at the far side of the world engaging in acts of daring do, or hubris, and greatness, set to brass band music, makes us feel just how far away from home they actually are. The brass band music in that context symbolizes home. It’s wet streets, cricket, and smokey pubs, the familiar and known juxtaposed to jungles and deserts, and people whose ways and customs are alien to us.

 

 

More cynically Pink Floyd used brass bands in The Wall, and The Final Cut, to represent the post-war era and Britain’s withdrawal from Empire. Into a more exhausted and broken nation reduced once again to being just an island off Europe. Yet, despite it all, the brass band still meant home, even if it was more gloomy now than before.

 

It seems on a deep level the emotions and feelings which come through in the music resonates with something deep in the native British psyche. I’ve often been accused of reveling in nostalgia and yearning for a time which is long gone, that I need to be less reactionary and more forward thinking. And there’s some truth to that. But the point is, authentic British patriotism has always been nostalgic.

 

 

But I suppose this begs us to question, what actually is nostalgia? The word derives from the Greek “Nostos”, which means “homecoming”, and “algos”, which means ache, or pain. Nostalgia then, literally means a yearning for home which is so intense it feels painful or in some way stressful. Nostalgia is usually triggered by a smell, or a song, which unlocks distant memories of emotional states. We have the sense of loss at a time which was, but is now past.

 

Over the years I’ve been highly critical of certain aspects of British identity and patriotism, especially relating to the self defeating narratives to emerge after World War to.

 

Nobody is really nostalgic for Spitfires, bulldogs, and Winston Churchill. They may have been once, but all are now nothing more than postmodern symbols, which have been colonized by political ideology and utility. They’re images or memes to be worn to signal a certain set of view points, it’s patriotism as a badge, not a genuine identity to be felt in the marrow of your bones!

 

British patriotism became a whirlwind of imagery, images of the Queen, images of Kate Middleton, images of redcoats laughing, or Bomber Harris, or Norf FC, or Greggs, or Thatcher. And it’s all hollow, postmodern trash in service to the meta-narrative that the good guys beat the bad guys in World War to! And liberalism, and multiculturalism, and universalism, won out in the end.

 

It’s pure astroturf, and doesn’t actually encapsulate anything authentic, or meaningful, at all!

 

And while the mind-benders and propagandists got to work creating this self image of ourselves for us, forgotten about and neglected because it is the wrong form of expression, “the band played on”!

 

This is what I felt when I watched that little memorial in the village, that this is real, authentic!

 

The demolition job that’s been done on British identity in modern times has been so severe, and so thorough, the gentle, sombre music of a brass band seems like that shrine in Japan that survived the atom bomb at Nagasaki!

 

 

The local vicar has been replaced by the mass media and Big Tech who tell us lies, hate us! And then tell us how to think about the lies. It’s identity and narrative scaled up to monstrous proportions, and then weaponized against its subjects! A truth creation industry, which engulfs and overwhelms authenticity and meaning, or genuine human feeling and sentiment.

 

 

And this brings me back, once again, to the question of nostalgia. If nostalgia is a painful yearning for a home which is now gone, it then creates a secondary question. If we’re not home, then where exactly are we?

 

We’re in the crisis of postmodernity, a wasteland of broken identity and collapsed forms of meaning. Our ethnic and cultural, and even sexual, touchstones have become severed and disconnected from ourselves, like an anchor which breaks loose from the seabed. We’re drifting around on the tide, un-moored, and without direction.

 

 

The little memorial made me realise that our identity hasn’t actually evaporated, and it isn’t something which only exists in nostalgia and memory, vague and abstract. It was right there in flesh, and blood, and spirit! In fact, it was more real than what the shoddy, synthetic replacement we’ve been handed, is.

 

And it’s ours as well! It’s not universal, it’s exclusive to us. Which probably explains, why it’s been neglected. But it is there, still, like a fly caught in amber.

 

 

Like British soldiers of a bygone age, trekking through distant deserts and jungles, it reminds us of home.

We have it the same in Eastern Europe. Not as far gone as you are in the West and a different history but the memories of grey, gloomy, really modest but mostly straight poor environment of the socialist and post-transformation Poland has inherent warmth and deeply rooted, organic feeling to it. It is a constant reminder that the souls found a way to thrive despite the circumstances and a whitepill that they will again.

Yes. It is hard.
I remember a few years ago when I went on a road trip with my father to see Delville Wood, where the South African contingent died in the French forests for the Empire, as their relatives launched a failed rebellion back home.
The previous year the government had intervened to mutilate the memorial to address the racial grievances still felt, for a war in which they had no part. My parents had attended, and saw the veterans, whose acts in service of the country against Soviet invasion continue to go unrecognised, relegated to the back, behind the overpaid ANC bureaucrats and cabinet ministers.
When I went, it was deathly quiet – the government had decided, after changing the memorial, not to sponsor its upkeep any more. It was still in fine condition apart from the modifications, but I felt a very peculiar sense of bitterness as the drizzle fell there.
Not much to say about it, just pain – every article of memory defaced before being left to crumble, not just here, but even overseas. Not one trace of heritage which may be publicly acknowledged or celebrated, our entire identity, all our history in this land, whether Boer or Brit, entirely criminalised, vandalised, relegated to the shadows.
Holding onto the pain. It is all that provides any kind of grip.

I feel the melancholy nostalgia of a homeland doubly lost, having emigrated as a young boy. Old enough to have formed memories of a time and culture lost to both time, distance, and cultural change itself. I feel the double sadness of a home left and lost never to return. A literal hobbit with no Shire to return to even should the Ring be unmade. I am still a Yorksher lad in my soul, whether or not the Shire remains….

Bandsman here. My band regularly warm up with the hymes in the intro and outro. Brass and concert band traditional hymes really are something that resonates heavily with the ethnic British People, regardless of strife. There has been a very long push to poz the band scene, especially with the post war good guys properganda. But it’s also a vessel for the dissent right can win over, simply because of the people who started it in the first place…ie the working class right thinking British and in extension Western Europeans. Put a band on any side of the street and the right people, regardless of their taught understanding of identity, will naturally, and instinctively embrace it.

I moved to a small town in CA a year ago and we have some amazing parades with all the local marching bands and men on horses and people cheer for the firemen. It was really something and I did cry a little to experience it for the first time. The worst thing they had was suffragettes. I hope it stays that way. They used to do a boys only soap box race in the 60s. That would be so cool to try to bring back. Just last weekend we had a Lumber Jubilee with arm wrestling and tug of war. On the 4th of July there’s a grease pole competition for the kids. It’s the best.

Within the mines, they used to use wooden props and when they started to replace them with metal ones the miners voiced their concerns because the wood props used to speak to them and creak and give a warning when there was going to be a collapse. Metal ones didn’t. The fact that the right can hear Britain creaking under the weight of the daftness is an advantage that the left will not have when the collapse comes and falls upon their rainbow flag and multicultural dreams.

@NOWHERE PEOPLE this movement is full to the brim of young men (even Zoomer children) who fancy themselves as either luminous intellectuals or rugged adventurers, often both, when in fact they embody the negatives of both archetypes with few of the positives. They have the soft hands of the intellectual and love too much the solitude of the adventurer. And all the while they look down on blue-collar people of the soil with an unearned sense of superiority, just seeing them as another part of the “normie” herd.
Essentially, they’re a bunch of callow keyboard warriors who need to touch grass.

But when he began making fun of working class…and on top of that,claim himself Stalin 2.0 i realized he’s got no moral fibre.
Too much intellectualism,with airs of aristocracy…Now,there’s nothing necessarily wrong with aristocracy,or higher echelons,but manlets like Fuentes,are not,at the end of the day,of the caliber of O. Mosley,not in the least.

I would love to see your take on the film “brassed off” Morgoth. Personally, having grown up in a Yorkshire mining town, I cannot stand that movie. It is a middle-class fantasy, one last thrust of the bayonet as the remnants of British heavy industry was mothballed. When the woman joins the band this was an early nineties feminist insert, utterly false and would never have happened . Brass bands where, as you point out, a man only affair (and rightly so). Today we men are not allowed to have our own space even though my wife and daughters know to leave me alone when I am in my workshop ‘tinkering’. There are no real brass bands anymore because men back then where proud of the job they did, digging coal or working steel was real man’s work! Not many jobs left these days that have the same respectability or purpose. Abide with me makes my eyes well up…

It’s actually even surprising that towns in Britain even at least still have these bands and sense of community left in the first place. My town used to have boat festivals on the nearby river every where people would build their boats and sail them on the river on that day but that was decades ago. It’s now a town-sized motel where white-collar commuters go to sleep at the end of the day after working in the big city nearby.

Absolutely sublime again Morgoth. I’m on the same page as you entirely, even as a Welsh Independence supporter. Our peoples on these isles have been cast to the margins entirely by this post-modern ‘reality’ we have been forced to endure. Which as you so brilliantly Intuit, is so patently false and spiritually leaden.And how could it be otherwise really bearing in mind it’s all been devised by the modern ‘truth benders ‘ who wield such power and influence today.
”A truth creation industry which engulfs and overwhelms authenticity and meaning or genuine human feeling or sentiment’ . Wow. Just Wow. Such power and depth and truth in those words.
You truly are a wordsmith for our times, who makes me believe there’s still hope for the ordinary people of Wales, England, Scotland, and Ireland despite all the dark forces ranged against us who want to wipe us off the map in essence.
Keep the faith and God Bless.

Seeing the footage of Whitley bay, and that hymm playing brought tears to my eyes. These streets, parks and beeches of Tyneside, iv trod since a boy in the 1960s. I walk these streets now as a 62 year old. The view has not changed in much off my beloved Tyneside. Yet now when i walk my region, i feel a sence of unease, a sence of loss? Because the demographic is rapidly changing? These foreign faces i see in ever increasing numbers, are not my people? Its hard to explain, i feel under threat, not secure? But most of all i dread what will happen in the near future, after me? How will my 16 grandchildren fare in the land of their ancestors, as our number rapidly shink, and that of the uninvited and unwanted rapidly grow. God help my people!

The footage and music remind me so much of my childhood, growing up in the small pit village of Eldon. The jazz band marched through the streets every Sunday, after the local football match. Every body knew everybody else, warts and all. We had grown up together and our parents and grandparents had done the same before us; there were no strangers. The fellas compared the prize veg and flowers they had grown, trading secrets on fertiliser recipes and sharing seeds. The kids were out all day, climbing trees or scrambling on dirt bikes and there was always a basic home cooked meal on the table, to eat together when we got home. I am feeling that ache something terrible right now, but I’m also greatful to have had those times. If the collapse does come, as seems likely, life will be harder, but simpler and we will need to know and rely on each other again. Maybe those who remember can help those that don’t bring some of that good stuff back.

West coast USA really is a 20th Century creation. “California” the icon/image, it’s really greater Los Angeles, which is a post-WW2 creation. Seattle WA is a post-WW1 creation with its big first growth thanks to aircraft building for military and commercial purposes; a 2d growth after Billy Goetz’s daddy arranged that sweet sweet venture capital. Both regions have no real history, no connection to how or why the USA was created. They are both outposts of the original 13 colonies’ various commercial and engineering-based activities, and the Wall Street based financial gamesmanship’s constant internal one-upmanship on how best to squeak “value” out of thin air.
Folks who grew up along the west coast prior to, say, the Vietnam War? They experienced a bit more history than what followed, as the greater LA and greater Seattle areas became sprawling (for their respective geographies) monstrosities serving “the service industry” where nothing durable or physically tangible ever is created (celebrity, entertainment, software and software-as-service).
But it’s still nothing like growing up in the mid-Atlantic. Or in one of the big industrial towns of the midwest, where there is some legitimate history of making things. Not selling ideas, but making things.

The worst thing of all the decay, is the loss of memory where our ancestors are rooted. It is like a millionfold extermination. But I have insofar a problem with the “nostalgia” as long as it’s not laying the foundation for a new organic growth of our culture. It’s correct that there is something still there, ready to be retaken. However, as history proofed, it was not capable to withhold our current madness. So we have to incorporate it, but find new ways. New ways which are experimental. New ways which are multifaceted. Thus, we should be open to them.

I moved to England from South Africa when I was 8, December 97. My mum met me and little sister at Heathrow and then we drove for hours and hours to a little pit village in the north east that was to be our home (my mum is English). It was dark by the time we got there. It was grey, soggy and so cold. But the all the Christmas lights were out and lit up your breath and in a little square, in front of the memorial, a brass band was playing. That brought a little tear to my eye that did Morgoth.

That was a nice one, Morgoth. Thank you.
The offshoring of industry, and the mechanization of mining & timber extraction, they were not just a reduction in human-done jobs. They were a removal of a man’s source of identity and pride: what he can build with his own two hands. Men who understand this, they cannot just go “learn to code” and imagine that playing with sequences of characters & symbols ever could provide a sense of satisfaction, a feeling of accomplishment. Towns that once had lively evenings at the pub then become towns with somber men drowning sorrows at the same pub.
I went to college in the Ohio River Valley in the USA, a place where for most of the 20th Century the majority of working men were affiliated with coal mining or steel making. Through WW2 these towns were full of vigor and pride in their productivity, etc. But as things offshored in the post-Vietnam era, the towns grew somber. By the time I was in college (80s), most of those formerly busy towns were now grey and somewhat sad.
The current left, and their obedient “I’m not political” leftish-voting acolytes, llike to talk about “vibrant” cities and towns. But the “vibrancy” they imagine is fictitious and fantastic. It’s nothing like how a working town is vibrant when the work is steady and the families know where they will get the needed funds to pay bills, buy necessities, pay plumbers and electricians and doctors and veterinarians, etc.

I’ve often been gripped by the true feeling and meaning of nostalgia. It took me a very long time to unpack the feeling. It would grip me and I would feel a bit embarrassed because I couldn’t contextualize it. I would be at a classical music concert maybe and would all the sudden be overcome with a strange mixture of joy and sadness that would make me cry real tears right on the spot. I could tell it wasn’t connected directly to the music as a piece of art: there was something deeper going on. I realized little by little that it was nostalgia. Seeing the collective orderly efforts of a symphony orchestra reminded me of a culture that was unified in purpose and identity towards something higher. Something I never really experienced but, being an older millennial with greatest generation grandparents, I was only once removed from. Hearing what beauty had arisen out of western civilization filled me with a longer for return. I realized just how much of a desert we live in today that this feeling was rising up in me and I was completely unaware of its origins at first. Strange how emotions can manifest in the form of a mystery. We are the Israelites wandering in search of a home except each of us is just over the next dune from each other, just out of sight. As an American, its stranger still because its even more abstract. I’m not nostalgic for any one European identity. I’m nostalgic for the whole tradition of the west. I think living with that pain and surrounding ourselves with the mature and beautiful fruits of our ancestors is the healthiest thing we can do. Read the classics, gain a true unironic and authentic knowledge and love of classical music. To read only what is good to read. To look at only what is good to see. We still have the freedom to do that for the most part.

These local parades, county fairs, and sports competitions would have been a form of local entertainment. Produced locally and consumed locally. One problem we have today is with television and radio they can beam in high production value entertainment that takes the place of the various community programs. Its hard to compete with productions costing hundreds of millions of dollars. But they still occur in small town America.

It’s pretty depressing how even within my life all the green spaces I enjoyed as a kid in my town are rapidly being replaced by soulless newbuilds and flats. Even some of the older Victorian buildings get knocked down on occasion to be replaced by an Aldi or some shite; or even worse, a Pakistani hive buys them and cuts down all the old English oaks that once surrounded it so that they can pave over the garden for taxi parking. The people too are being replaced with those of a darker complexion.
Still it is nice when you’re hiking through the moors and, when passing through a small village or farm, you share a bit of banter with some English lads or men at work. You give the border collie a stroke and then laugh at the Asians who get bussed into the middle of the moors from York just to take a selfie and then go home. Warms the heart it does.

I’m croatian and grew up in Germany which I always loved since our cultures are very similar, different but still very european… I also used to work at their Schuetzenfests and hearing the bands made me cry even 10+ years ago, I always loved it and I miss the old Germany I grew up in with its traditions (especially in rural areas), it’s all gone now, but unlike Germans and you Anglos I could still go to Croatia and experience something that literally felt like time travel, when I moved back to Croatia for good and took the bus from the airport to the nearest city I was crying like a baby because all I saw was White people for the entire 45min ride, my own kin! ZERO diversity! No degenerates! Youngsters were kind and polite to the elderly, there was no noise, no weird looks, no violence, nothing, groups of kids on the street in the middle of a town or city will greet you with respect… it was just like Germany used to be 20+ years ago… I am crying again…

What to do? England is obviously not my country, but anyone who does care for it and has deeps roots in it must make sure the band indeed marches on.

In the morning, the same group of guys meet along with myself. We have great convos with each other as well as with the staff, and it reminds me that their is still something to small town America. A community of people can easily come together and just enjoy each other and the little town in which we live. It’s the first time I’ve felt connected to anything real in a long time. I get to have this feeling almost every morning. I hope you, Morgoth, get to feel it more often!

Away from home so long, far away, it’s the smells I remember and long for, the smell of home, of food, of the fields, the streets, the river and on and on. I never thought that’s what would make me nostalgic. Taste also is a powerful memory, it colludes with the imagination and like smell we conjure it up but desire the real thing with a certain intensity.. Every country has its own smell(s) but nothing smells like home. The architecture changes, fads come and go, celebrations alter and context shifts often with the landscape; but so many smells and tastes preserve themselves as though they emanate from the very land itself.

Everytime I hear the “we need endless migrants to do the jobs Brits won’t do” I think to my grandparents, proud and hardworking, who worked as farm labourers. Jobs now viewed as slave chattel by the cafe latte elite

I’m nearly 50 years old, I grew up in the North-East of England (Newcastle) I’ve worked and travelled in many different locations around the world. I have got no interest in ever going abroad ever again, I don’t even have a passport now, and don’t want one. I miss the olden days so much, I miss the people, the community, I miss living in a terrace street with an outside toilet. I miss the old cobblestone back lanes with the goal man, the pop man, the dustbin man, especially the way they had the knack of carrying them old tin bins over their shoulders, the rag and bone man with his horse and cart, shouting out some noise which no one could understand. I miss the way the postman, window cleaner, milkman always whistled when doing their rounds.
But most of all, I miss my people and their old values. I don’t feel part of this society I feel like an alien in my own land. We have fallen so much! We need to turn back to God almighty as a nation. (2 Chronicles 7:14) “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” King James Version
God Bless England!

To see old England – the way it was just 20-30 years before I was born – makes me feel like I could shed a tear. It’s a gloomy melancholy feeling because it had started to disappear completely by the time I was able to talk. We’ve been robbed.

The secret to identity is who you want to be in the future, as life is a process of continual creation or re-creation and redefinition. Rather than arguing about what defines the British based on interpretations of the past, it’s much more practical to ask ordinary people who do we want to be in the future, what kind of nation and people do you want to be moving forward. As for the past, it’s reactions to or views
about events that matter more than the so called events themselves. The only reason to do anything in the end is because it’s an announcement of who you are.

I’m not romanticizing it, it is what it is. They didn’t work 12 hours a day but 6 and more disposable income than people do now.
You may as well just mash your keyboard with your fist, you’d make more sense appear to know more about what you’re talking about.

Sorry of I made that cryptic man.
The RMT Union bloke, the big bald salt of the Earth lad left school at 16 heid of the railworkers Union. He was quite out of kilter in the question time audience it was close to an atmosphere “Oh gawd a pleb is being allowed to talk”
I would say he is what the left used to be at its less socially subversive height, it is comical how angry establishment media get when a genuine working class power position appears for all the Tory talk of free speech they utterly despise any point of view outwith their framing of the world, democracy lol.
