about

Chris says: A keyboard-only instrumental which is entirely Elliot's work; he produced this to go on Tales From Rivelin and to make the album a bit longer, and we agreed to include it without too much thought. With hindsight, it might have been better if we'd worked on improving the sounds somehow during the recording, but nevertheless...

Interesting trivia- we were interviewed a little while ago over the internet by a webzine run by someone with entirely questionably (and particularly obvious) political beliefs. We agreed to do the interview simply because I figured any press is good press, and there was no danger of us coming across as a nationalist or racist band. When the questions arrived, one of them made me laugh out loud; the interviewer had entirely betrayed his own political ideas in the question, and was effectively asking us to defend bands with questionable views against accusations of being racist.

Well. I had a field day with that question. I sent him back a long, focussed essay explaining quite why the very idea of national socialism (in general) and national socialism in music in particular makes me sick, how Northern Oak have never and will never have anything to do with that, and how, quite frankly, the very idea of white supremacy and anti-immigration in the UK is retarded because technically most of us are immigrants anyway. The Anglo-Saxons that many BNP supporters claim proudly to be were a Germanic tribe that came over from Europe to inhabit England, so those people are essentially saying that they're proud to be immigrants. The hypocrisy makes me chuckle. Anyway, to his credit the interviewer did print our interview where we tore apart his political beliefs without editing it, so yes. The relevance of this story, however, is that he felt Lost In The Dusky Moors was the strongest track on the album, a fact that frankly bemused the rest of us.

Maybe racists listen to music differently, or something?
