    Good article John, I didn't realise it was you who did that article about Tony and Compulsion. Answered my questions - I guess you're right in that it's just about time that all this stuff was compiled into one place, especially given that Hidden Reverse left it all out.

    Death to False Nazism!

    I'm glad you liked it - and I'm also glad that there are people taking the piss out of all this to people's faces, so I guess a variety of approaches is needed

    I think my favourite was Vjing for an EBM band at the Slimelight which just consisted of me typing slogans on the screen like 'Fucking stupid middle class wankers playing with fascism'. And yeah, I always considered it infiltration - like I'm here, I'm mixed race, I'm queer, what motherfuckers, what?

    Haha, great stuff from vim and mistersloane here.

    I know next to nothing about this 'scene' but all these bands that don't so much 'flirt with' Nazi imagery as drunkenly pull it and wake up next to it with a hangover - it all strikes me as being basically Marilyn Manson for people who think they've outgrown Marilyn Manson.

    That said, I bet Rammstein are enormous fun to see live... *cue death threats from the industrial purists*

    I really like Der Blutharsch, some of it anyway. They're really pretty. The music, that is.

    Is this not a similar tactic to Home's posing as a skinhead in press shots to promote his 90s skinhead books?

    Home WAS a skinhead in the eighties and most of the 90s. Not just in press shots.

    He's generally been very clear about his political positions as well, whereas DIJ have mystified their actual beliefs.

    I dressed up as a skinhead for various publicity photographs and then put a pair of these pictures on the front of two titles published by AK Press. Since potential readers would see what appeared to be someone involved in a youth cult on the front, it would hopefully bring to mind the New English Library skinhead and hells' angel novels of the early seventies.
