I should say that I saw Death in June somewhere in North Oakland circa 1997 and quite enjoyed it.
No idea if they actually buy into some the **** they seem to be selling and I don't really want to know.
I think that (use powerful symbolism) is more schtick than anything else.
It's hard to tell. The Current 93 records have swastika images, which are obviously a very ancient Buddhist symbol and he does go by the name of David Tibet.
Either way, there's a fine line there....whether either are really crossing it, is difficult to tell.
Having said that, I definitely believe Boyd Rice is a Nazi.
