Capstick Comes Home

I just found this on Youtube and felt I had to share it immediately with my readers. This little gem has been a favorite of mine since childhood, and, though there have been many imitators, there has sadly never been another Tony Capstick. Here is a link to perhaps his most famous piece, “Capstick Comes Home”, which must, one supposes, have been inspired by the adverts for ‘Hovis’ brown bread, which used the plaintive tones of the flugel horn to romanticize the ‘Geordieness’ of the Northeast. I do hope you will all enjoy this classically laconic piece of Geordie humour.
