They shouldn’t be driving day or night
They can’t think left, they can only think right
The sun reflects off their bald head
Like Ian Stuart they’re going to wind up dead
Nazis… shouldn’t drive (their cars)
They should’ve paid attention in driver’s ed
Instead of hating foreigners, queers and reds
Keep your eyes on the highway you loser thug
Now you’re squished on the highway like a bug
Ian, Ian, “King of the Pit”, no friend to you or me
Aaaaaaaaaaaah! Watch out for that tree!
Next month, on September 23rd, the Australian franchise of the neo-Nazi international bonehead network Blood & Honour will be holding a gig somewhere in Melbourne to commemorate the death of B&H founder, Ian Stuart Donaldson, in 1993. Donaldson — more commonly known as ‘Ian Stuart’ — was born on the 11th of August 1958 in Poulton-Le-Fylde, near Blackpool in Lancashire. He was educated at Baines Grammar School, talked a lot of racist shit, then died on the 24th of September 1993 in a car crash.
The annual ISD memorial gig is one of few semi-public events organised by the handful of boneheads who form the core of B&H, but the gig itself is reported to attract as many as 1-200 boneheads from all over the country. (The boneheads’ last gig was at the Hamilton Hotel in Newcastle, NSW, on the 25th of February.)
While MDC ridiculed Donaldson’s death with their song Nazis Shouldn’t Drive — as did FYP with their song Ian Stuart as a Crash Test Dummy — the three local bands advertised as playing at the gig are not expected to be doing cover versions. Instead, the three — Bail Up!, Blood Red Eagle and Ultraviolence — are more likely to be singing the praises of being White and manly. Viking ships, convict blood, the evils of Communism and the duplicitousness of Jewry are other common motifs.
From Eye of the Storm:
A state of emergency, living inside hell
You see but you don’t understand and no-one sounds the bell
From Blood Red Eagle:
Now return to the ground in a world of pain and regret
With a scarlet Blood Red Eagle, carved upon your chest!
Blood Red Eagle.
We make our stand against the reds
‘cause those bastards don’t make no sense
Then again, bastards like Douglas (vocals) — with his fetish for all things ‘Viking’ — and Damien (vocals, Bail Up!) — spending almost 40 hours under the needle — don’t really make a whole lot more.
Plus, their music’s shit.
[NB. The other notable bonehead car crash casualty is Violent Storm: they were sadly unable to appear at the B&H festival on the 14th of March 1992, in Valencia, Spain, as only one member survived a crash on the way to Heathrow Airport. To catch their flight | Blood Red Eagle have played with Blasting Process, Changeover, Charter 77, Creeping Jesus, Demolition Highstyle, Exhibit A, Out of Order, Thoughtcrime, Unclean and World War XXIV | Local NSBM bands include Abyssic Hate, Destroyer 666, Gospel of the Horns, Raven’s Wing and Spear of Longinus.]
