Two months ago, when last we spoke about Prussian Blue – the white-power kiddie-pop twin-sister singing act – S.O.L. commented compassionately: “The only brainwashing that’s been done is to those poor, cute kids. Someone had to raise them to think the way they do and that’s just tragic. I feel sorry for them.”
S.O.L. nailed that one. In July, a TV documentary titled “Nazi Pop Twins” debuted in Britain. Filmmaker James Quinn got up-close and personal with the girls – Lamb and Lynx Gaede – and their neo-Nazi stage mom, April. (And their grandfather, who brands his cattle with swastikas.)
The surprising theme (or maybe not so surprising) is that Lamb and Lynx, as they’ve grown into adolescence, are starting to rebel against their controlling mother. They want to write songs about love and other normal human stuff... not Aryan supremacy. And mom ain’t having it. The tension between them is remarkable to witness.
“Nazi Pop Twins” is up on YouTube in bite-sized segments. I’ve pulled a few segments onto my Video Bar. Or you can watch the complete 50-minute documentary in one sitting by following this link. (Hat-tip: the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Hatewatch.)
Regardless of where the Gaede twins end up politically or spiritually, they’ll never be pop stars. Poor things... they just can't fuckin’ sing. But I do wish them good mental health.
