Wisconsin shooting: how racist bands recruit for white supremacists

Aug 7, 2012 Full story: www.csmonitor.com 86
The suspect in the Wisconsin shooting rampage was a member of a racist rock band, part of an underground music scene that is a powerful recruitment arm of the white supremacist movement.

Wade Michael Page of Cudahy, Wis., was the guitarist and founder of End Apathy, a hardcore punk band that espoused white power sentiments in its music. The band is identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as one of a dozen bands that have been involved with national white supremacist organizations over the past few years.

Steppenwolf out of those choices. They even coined the term "heavy metal". But go back a little further than that, The Kinks got that "heavy" edge by cutting the speaker cone.
Thanks. Love 'em all.

I didn't say "fuzz=metal," but the Yardbirds played some heavy tunes. I liked their blues, but also the doomy minor-key songs they wrote themselves such as 'Shapes of Things' and 'Still I'm Sad.'

GREAT band. Underrated, if you can be underrated and had Clapton, Beck, and Page all play guitar for you at one time or another...:)
