Feel like stirring some shit up, haven't done so in a while.......my mind was sparked by a "comment" I
recieved today from someone who just tripped over one of my old "Nazi Rock" posts that you folks love so much.......this comment was something like (paraphrasing) :"Yeah preach it bro! White Power!".......Uhh, yeah, OK....
I DO NOT, as I have explained many times, post Nazi-rock bands/skinhead bands/racist bands because I agree with thier ideology......I post them because I am GLAD that I live in a country where people are ALLOWED to be racists, and NOT have thier thoughts censured.....it's rare that someone understands this, and I'm THRILLED when someone DOES absorb the message completely, but I must admit I get a laugh or three out of comments like the above, as well as comments preaching at me that I should not acknowledge that this stuff even exists......I always counter that with where were you when I was posting Rage Against the machine, or Crass, or Le Tigre, or Tom Robinson Band, or any of 100 OTHER "hateful" LEFTIST bands I have posted.......I ask, again, are only persons of the liberal/leftist persuasion "allowed" to be hateful? NEVER ONCE has anyone answered this, in general they prefer just to call me names and then disappear.
The album in question here, "Best of Nordland", is pretty decent AS THESE THINGS GO, meaning if you are 100% DOWN on this type of music, likely you aren't going to like this one, and maybe you will even bitch about my posting of it......have at it, nothing wrong with an adult discussion on the topic, name-calling, however is another matter, so please check yourself.
As for the album: well, if one were a FAN of this type of thing, I would say they'd probably enjoy this one a good bit......No Remorse checks in with "Farewell Ian Stuart", an almost embarassing ode to the late Skrewdriver vocalist. Involved Patriots "Three Years of Winter" is a fairly interesting track that I hadn't heard before. Garrison present a couple of fairly good punk/anger stompers, and the finale is from Svastika, whom were featured here in full-post mode a while back.
OK, it'll never sink in to some, but once again......I enjoy that rock n roll scares/threatens some
people.....punk, rockabilly, gangsta rap, and a few others (incuding this stuff) SCARE people......and THAT is rock n roll.....it's personal shit, it's supposed to scare your parents, your girlfriend, annoying holier-than-thou liberals etc......at the end of the day, it's generic, second line punk, with hateful/racist lyrics to draw in the target "audience"......I personally, "get" exactly what they are doing, the people who will complain about my posting AS WELL AS anyone making "White Power" comments in regards to it, well, they are opposite sides of the same coin......they simply don't get it.
I will continue from time to time to post these, not because I really enjoy them that much, but because they stir thought/debate/arguement......a few of you (happens every time) will "never read my blog again"......you will be missed, what can I say.
This costs you nothing, check it out and see what you think.......perhaps you will HATE it. Great. At least, though, you will have HEARD it, rather than just making unfounded criticisms in the dark......ready,aim,fire guys, I am ready for the usual "hater" comments and the like, but the point remains, this IS rock n roll, and that is what I attempt to explore each time I make a post here.
There it is, fire away, I can take it......it IS rock n roll.......is it GREAT rock n roll? Nope, but not everything needs to be. It's loud and crude and attempts to be intimidating. It's listenable, at least once. Just remember, if you are going to criticize me for putting this up (completely your right), examine your own thoughts and wonder why you gave it not a thought when I have posted the aforementioned "hateful" leftists?
That said, BigScott loves you all, really, just like to start shit really. Please, go see "The Hunger
Games: Mockingjay part 2" this weekend, and report back.....I have LOVED the Hunger Games series, the novels as well as the films, both REALLY right up my alley, plus Jennifer Lawerence has that NICE BIG ASS, mmmmmmmmmmm........gonna go see it tomorrow myself, but if you've been here any length of time you will know of my love for distopian fiction........what a weekend? Ohio State vs Michigan State, Minnesota vs Green Bay, AND the fucking Hunger Games.........and with layoff looming in the air for me, HOW COULD LIFE GE ANY BETTER? (I've always loved winter and it's coming up fast!)
Maybe something else tonight, certainly tomorrow, more stuff from da Big Boy.......I'm in a posting mood.........TELL me what ya want, OR better yet, create/contribute someting like my great friends Brian, Cliff, Jonder, Apantabapanta (MIA?) Dave Sez, Psychlist, and everyone else who has helped over the years to make this scene what it's been, I can't tell you all enough how much it's appreciated.
