Hatcham Social: ‘Spirit of ’45’

November 18, 2014

~

In the fifth of an exclusive preview series, Hatcham Social release their self-made art movie for ‘Spirit of ’45’. Each of the six films the band have made to accompany songs on their new album will be published on River’s Edge – one per week, with commentaries from band members. Full lyrics below.

 

The film is made up of archive film, as Finn Kidd, the band’s drummer, explains: “Using found footage of Rationing, The rebuilding of Britain after the War and The introduction of the NHS and the Welfare State, I tried to piece together a very literal interpretation of the words of the song.”

Toby Kidd, Finn’s brother and band frontman, adds: “I had read some of Welshman Aneurin ‘Nye’ Bevan’s In Place Of Fear (Aneurin was very much the main force behind the NHS coming into fruition), and watched Ken Loachs film Spirit Of ’45. I was inspired by the spirit of change and energy for social justice that I felt from these. We need to keep a little of that spirit in us: we cannot take these gifts like the NHS for granted, otherwise some sneaky fool will take it from under our feet to make a quick penny.”

 

 

 

 

 

‘Spirit of ’45’ lyrics

 

It’s been like some mad-hatters tea party

Feels like I’ve fallen into the March Hare’s game

Tell me baby, tell me baby

I want to Jump down from Melancholy Lane

 

Show me the spirit of ’45

Show me the spirit of ’45

Honey show me the spirit of ’45

 

Our brain cells set to kamikaze

Too much TV

In place of fear I want to jump down from Melancholy Lane

 

Show me the spirit of ’45

Show me the spirit of ’45

Honey give me the spirit of ’45

 

We could be dancing in the street

Could be dancing in the street

We could be dancing in the street

 

Show me the spirit of ’45

Show me the spirit of ’45

Honey show me the spirit of ’45

Honey show me the spirit of ’45
