…and they are looking foin. Maybe there’s something to be said for purity of race (I kid, I kid.) I’m not sure which one is Lynx and which one is Lamb, but the one on the left grew up to be an Amazon, and that’s after I doctored the pic in photoshop. This pic, from January 2008, was the most recent I could find, but I’m sure the duo are hotter and whiter than ever.
Not sure what I’m going on about? This seemingly innocuous pair of jail-baiters is none other than white nationalist folk-rock act, Prussian Blue, all grown up with nowhere to go (well, actually, I guess they’re going to the prom.)
Formed in 2003 by fraternal twins Lynx and Lamb Gaede (ie: their racist, failed musician of a father living vicariously through his kids,) Prussian Blue quickly became a media sensation. The then pre-pubescent waifs thrilled audiences at festivals around the globe while simultaneously being vilified by the press as little blond-haired, blue-eyed monsters.
Oi oi oi skinhead boy, you’re my oi boy.
The name, Prussian Blue, stems from white supremacist claims concerning the lack of Zyklon B residue in Nazi gas chambers, citing it as an inaccuracy of the “holocaust myth.” I’m a lazy summarizer, so we’ll let Wikipedia do the rest:
They recorded and released a debut CD at the end of 2004 called Fragment of the Future, which had both an acoustic folk-rock and a bubblegum pop sound. A year later, they recorded their second album, The Path We Chose, which has a more traditional rock sound… Most of the songs on the second album lack the racial and nationalist overtones of Fragment of the Future and are about more mainstream subject matter, like boys, crushes, and dating.
The duo moved with their mother (April Gaede), their stepfather (Mark Harrington) and their younger half-sister, Dresden, from Bakersfield, California to Kalispell, Montana in 2006 because, in their mother’s words, Bakersfield was “not white enough.” Some of their new neighbors did not welcome them… (and) received threatening letters from members of out-of-state white supremacist organizations.
The duo toured Europe in the summer of 2007, performing at events for white nationalist organizations. Their recent activities have been limited by Lynx’s health problems. As of early 2009, the band’s web site and MySpace page are no longer operational.
So, despite all this, is it wrong that these two make my little soldier want to do the Nazi salute? Nein, my friend, nein. You’re in our prayers, little Lynxie. Our prayers and our dreams…
