The concert will take place between Veneto and Vicenza, only fifteen kilometers away from the city Montecchio Maggiore and the town Lonigo and fifty kilometers away from Vicenza. Via Email-newsletter the addresses of hotels in Montecchio Maggiore and Lonigo are spread. The Bands “Bully Boys”, “Brutal Attack”, “Estirpe Imperial”, “Kill Baby Kill”, “Armco”, “Strappo” and “Heiliger Krieg” will play there. The concert is advertised on international Neo Nazi homepages.
Bully Boys: This Neo Nazi band from North Texas, USA was “founded in Florida in 1983, it was turned by band members into a racist band shortly thereafter. The Bully Boys are closely linked to the racist Hammerskins skinhead group. In 1990, drummer Sean Tarrant was one of several Confederate Hammerskins sentenced to nearly 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to civil rights convictions for involvement in the vandalization of a mosque and a Jewish community center in Dallas, and chasing and assaulting minorities in a park. Their current lead vocalist has also spent time in jail on assault charges. In their various incarnations, the Bully Boys have concentrated on playing at venues rather than recording albums.” (http://www.adl.org/education/neo_nazi_music.asp). One of their most popular songs is “Six Million More” which refers to the National Socialist Holocaust.
Brutal Attack: This British band was founded in 1980, it belongs to the core of the British Neo Nazi milieu. The band has produced about 30 racist and Neo Nazi releases and has participated in many split-releases and samplers, for example one can find a song on the “Blood and Honour”(a Neo Nazi network)-release “Blood & Honour Vol.1”. In the song “Aryan child” the vocalist sings: “(…)Aryan child, listen to what is said So rise your hand and learn to love your land For the white revolution needs your uncorrupted hand. (…) Child awake now for your lands been robbed & sold, by men of high finance, the truth you must be told. What your ancestors fought for, sacrifice untold, has all been stolen by bankers of the Jewish fold (…)”
The Spanish Neo Nazi Band “Estirpe Imperial” was founded in 1991. It contributed for example to the sampler “White Pride/World Wild Vol.3”.
The Band “Kill Baby Kill” from Belgium was founded in 2002. Their songs are strongly racist and anti-Semitic: “There’s nothing wrong with racial pride, so I don’t understand the fuss. Just take a look at the Niggers and Muds, they are even worse than us (…) Some say all men are equal, I can tell you that ain’t right. Pakis, Niggers, Muds and Spics: They sure as hell ain’t white. We all know that Niggers are lazy, while greed reflects the Jew (…)” (from the song “diversity” on the release “Give back the Oi! to the white working class”, 2007).
The Italian Band “Armco” first released an album in 2001. In 2007 it contributed to a “Tribute release” for the German Neo Nazi “Lunikoff”, also known as Michael Regener. Regener was the front man of the Band “Landser”, which has been deemed a criminal organization in Germany. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landser_(band) )
The Italian Band “Strappo” was founded in 2005 and consists of members of the extreme right bands “Provos 18”, “Fronte 82” and “Mannaz”.
It is assumed that the name “Heiliger Krieg” of an also playing German Band is a pseudonym for the band “Race War”. The band was founded in 2000 in Schwäbisch Gmünd, Baden Württemberg. Because of the openly racist and Neo Nazi attitude of the band, it came to house searches, preliminary proceedings and an indictment by the Public Attorney’s Office Stuttgart because of the founding of a criminal organization. On 22nd of November 2006 all band members got suspended sentences. One song of the band is also named “Heiliger Krieg”. (http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_War)
