True To The Skinhead Cult: The Argument About Oi-Band Stomper 98
Ah, yes. The old "I'm not a racist, I have friends of color" angle. *Insert facepalm here*
In this case, I've always got, how can a black skinhead possibly be associated with neo-nazis? Well basically because he's virulantly anti-immigrant and anti-communist, it's insane, but in this world, where we have neo-nazi Israeli skinheads, nothing should ever shock you again.
I saw The Templars "final" show (it wasn't) years ago. They played two Skrewdriver songs. Not the explicitly racist songs, but it was still really weird seeing a band with a black drummer and another guy who looked possibly multiracial playing Skrewdriver songs.
I only posted this because I found a local flyer the other night, 'Vis Vires' immediately my antifascist spidey sense started tingling, just the combination of gothic font and oh so edgy Latin phrase was enough, sure enough, members of the Templars are in the band.
I've known some black skinheads who were totally into Skrewdriver and R.A.C. Oi! bands in the past. What a crazy, mixed up world we live in.
fuck them.as a same age punk as stomper here in germany i can tell you they are stupid idiots.knew one off their first members , an idiot with mohawk and skrewdriver-shirt,i`s more than 20 years ago,nth changed.bomb.
Fuck the greyzone! Kein „Stomper 98“ Konzert im Juha Herrenberg! in german,but maybe understand
Once again my computer is acting up and this is not the font I mean to respond with. Anyway I have a built in translator on my computer, so it was easy to read the article. I am very disappointed that Lars Fredrickson would be associated in any way with these boneheads, as I have been a long time fan of Rancid, and, after all these years I thought he would know better than to do Skrewdriver songs, even the ones that have no racist/political messages. Very sad, and disappointing indeed. First I find out the 4 Skins are a bunch of xenophobes, and now THIS.............
The 4 Skins were always dodgy. I've always thought that the bands who played that infamous gig in Southall in London in 1981 have never been called out for it properly. I mean a lot of white skinheads going to a predominately Asian area for a so called gig? They always hide behind this neither 'red nor racist'nonsense when the reality is that they ARE racist and ARE anti communist.
I love OI! It really pisses me off, that I feel like, I have to do detective work on some of my old faves. If any be racist, then fuck em'! Would like to ask a favor of anyone who could post a sort of approved list of OI! bands who haven't become corrupted. Thanks Much! aint ashamed
