Extract from 'Lustmord: The Last Heretic' an interview with Brian Williams (Lustmord) by Kiran Sande for FACT Magazine.
"Well, first of all I think you’re being overly kind say that it was a playful or aesthetic thing when there were a lot of people who were playing with really dodgy stuff. They’d try it explain it off but it’s like, fuck off, it’s just neo-Nazi crap, that’s what it is. That’s why I have a huge problem with neo-folk, you know they’re all like ‘It’s the runes’ blah blah – no it’s not, it’s fucking neo-Nazi crap. At least have the balls to admit it. Don’t give me this shit about it’s the European tradition, fuck off. I always call people up on that stuff, and I don’t get on with those kind of people precisely because of all that bullshit.
“I remember in the early days of SPK, we were on tour in Hamburg, and there were a couple of skinheads in the audience doing sieg-heils because they thought we were a bunch of Nazis. I was doing metal percussion that night, so I had a pair of metal bars, and I proceeded to beat the shit out of them with those. Which felt good. Needless to say our tyres were slashed that night (laughs).
“But to go back to your question, the truth is that the people who I consider my peers and friends don’t have anything to do with that shit. I know people who are caught up in it, but I don’t consider them my peers, for that very reason. I do have one very close friend Monte Cazazza, and he used to play with that stuff, but he’s Monte, he fucks with people, that’s why I like him. Some people think he’s a Nazi and he’s anything but, but he has fun fucking with people. It’s the same with Laibach, actually.”
