Several days ago, Nicole Hanley, a Canberra woman employed by the local branch of the French TNC ‘The Thales Group’, was suspended from her position as a ‘logistics manager’ at the company. This followed the public disclosure of her role as the moderator of an Internet forum maintained by Blood & Honour, an international network of neo-Nazis. Hanley’s suspension was followed by further reportage on B&H’s attempts to spread neo-Nazi ideology by organising a gig in Perth on ANZAC Day (April 25).
In response, the Perth organiser of B&H WA, veteran bonehead Murray Holmes, has thrown a sop (jdn. beschwichtigen) to the local RSL by announcing that the two bands scheduled to jackboot on stage — Murray’s band Quick & the Dead and Melbourne band Ravenous — would delay their prancing for four hours — from 8pm to midnight.
Diggers demand neo-Nazi backdown

According to the above, Murray contacted his comrade in Victoria to discuss the possibility of delaying the gig. Murray’s comrade is presumably Jesse, who warbles tunes for Melbourne band Ravenous. Jesse is a Hammerskin (another foreign import, the Hammerskins ((see below)) work in close collaboration with B&H in Australia) who also dabbles in business. You can help Murray and Jesse promote neo-Nazi ideology by purchasing items from Jesse’s online nutzi emporium 9percentproductions.com. Some of my favourite album titles are:
- ‘Der ewige Jude’ (The Eternal Jew) by Volkszorn;
‘Fetch the Rope’ by The Klansmen;
‘Freezer Full of Nigger Heads’ by Grinded Nig and;
‘Alcoholocaust’ by Jew Slaughter.
Jesse also flogs swastika flags and other nutzi kitsch.
Neo-Nazis back down on Anzac Day concert
April 8, 2009
In the latest exciting installment, Murray “said there would be no bouncers, but that anyone wishing to disrupt the event would have to deal with the consequences. “It would be a suicide mission to do that,” he warned. “Everybody’ll be arriving at once. Don’t incite mob violence when the mob isn’t on your side.”
Perth is on the side of neo-Nazism, apparently.
In the US, the Southern Poverty Law Centre provides the following summary of the madcap antics of neo-Nazi skinheads in the year 2008:
The total number of racist skinhead crews, driven by the addition of a couple of new organizations, rose from 90 in 2007 to 98 last year.
Relatively inactive in 2007, Hammerskin Nation, long a force to be reckoned with in the racist skinhead subculture, came back in a big way in 2008. The diminished tally of Hammerskins chapters (which dropped from 15 to 12) is misleading, as it represents the merging of smaller chapters and Hammerskin leaders weeding out weaker outfits, rather than a real drop in the organization’s strength and membership. On the contrary, the Hammerskins last year stepped up recruiting while forging new bonds with other bonehead groups and hosting dozens of hate rock concerts, white power cookouts, Mixed Martial Arts prizefight viewing parties and other widely promoted events.
The Confederate Hammerskins (CHS), the organization’s southeastern regional division, kept particularly busy, beginning last March with a St. Patty’s Day concert in Central Florida that was heavily attended by bones from across the country. Represented crews included Volksfront, Blood & Honour American Division, Atlantic City Skins, Troops of Tomorrow, and The Hated. Members of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club, a notorious biker gang, also attended.
A close Hammerskins ally, the Portland, Ore.-based Volksfront, held its first annual “Althing” gathering last Aug. 29-Sept. 1 on private land purchased by Volksfront in rural Missouri, about an hour’s drive north of St. Louis. Part three-day hate rock blowout, part bonehead summit, the Althing was held in the “Samuel Weaver Memorial Hall,” named after white supremacist Randy Weaver’s son, who was killed by federal agents during the infamous Ruby Ridge standoff in 1992 (Weaver’s wife and a U.S. marshal were also killed). Among the white supremacist leaders who attended was veteran bonehead organizer David Lynch, leader of the resurgent Sacramento, Calif.-based crew American Front.
Last December, more than 100 boneheads from at least five states gathered in Florida for a “Martyr’s Day” party, co-sponsored by CHS, Volksfront and American Front, that featured a keynote address phoned in from prison by Richard Kemp, a member of the white supremacist terrorist group The Order. Martyr’s Day commemorates the 1984 death of Order founder Bob Mathews, who died in a shootout with the FBI…
Oddly enough, the leader of The Order, David Lane, is in Perth at the moment. Well, parts of him anyway. See : The Battle for the Ashes (March 14, 2009).
