„On the 8Th Of February Smily (bassist of Produzenten der Froide) was arrested by an excessive police operation with the SEK (Special Forces of the German police – comparable to SWAT). He was then taken into remand. He was accused of threatening witnesses, who could prosecute him, on Facebook to prevent them from testifying in court. On the 17TH of February the law suit against Smily was negotiated. He was charged because of Insult, damage to property and bodily harm.
What the state didn’t want to see: A few of the right-wing „witnesses“ composed an unbelievable awkward and embarrassing flyer. In the context of the flyer Smily was depicted as open to right-wing propaganda or rather as a right-wing extremist. This Flyer was openly distributed on greyzone-shows in the region of Stuttgart! In Addition Smily had to defend himself against other provocations in public by this people. The Sentence: 10 Months in Jail without Probation for an insult, a damaged base drum and a swollen cheek of one of the witnesses.
The right-wing scum was even collaborating with the state security. Even though there was no real evidence for the threat, that Smily was accused of, he was arrested because of „danger of suppression of evidence“.
To support Smily and to show our position against any kind of right-wing or greyzone activity within our scene you can now download the Produzenten der Froide Songs „Hey Kameramann“ and „Ich scheiß auf euren Oi“ from Mad Butcher as solidarity offer.
The money collected by that goes straight to Smily to pay off the costs of litigation.
In this spirit:
FREE SMILY /// FUCK THE GREYZONE
! SIAMO TUTTI ANTIFASCISTI !“
„Saturday, November 13th, 2010 the National Socialist Movement gathered in downtown Phoenix, Arizona, as a part of their humorously titled “Reclaim the Southwest 2” tour. The NSM consider themselves to be on the forefront of the push toward more draconian, discriminatory, and racist laws, and increased militarization on the southern border. This is the context for anti-fascist action in Arizona. Anarchists resisted and some now face intense state repression.

Dane Rossman, of Tucson, AZ, is in need of urgent support in the face of multiple felony charges stemming from the riot which occurred on that day. In a worst case scenario, Dane could be looking at over 20 years in prison. He is charged with 6 counts of aggravated assault and 1 count of rioting.
As of right now, Dane is out on bail and attending scheduled court dates until trial in May. No plea offer has been made so far and it remains difficult to tell how aggressively the state is pursuing the charges. Dane and his supporters are currently attempting to obtain private counsel and strongly feel that this could be the best route for things to work out as well as possible for Dane – that is, to keep Dane out of prison.
Please help out Dane in any way you can, financially or otherwise, and forward this information to anyone interested in the ongoing struggles against white supremacy and fascism.“

A few exciting additions this week to the music catalogue, all of them from the band that has stood the test of time…Banda Bassotti.
Their new album, „Siamo Guerriglia“ is being released on CD this week, and is available for discounted pre-order immediately. This is interesting enough, but even more exciting is that what are in our opinion the two greatest and most classic albums of the band are finally being re-released on vinyl. These are of course their debut album „Figli della Stessa Rabbia“ and „Avanzo de Cantiere.“
All three are available as of today and for one week as discounted pre-orders, and will be shipped as of 19.3.
In our humble opinion „Figli…“ is a great album, and „Avanzo de Cantiere“ is simply one of the top 5 all time greatest albums of the Redskin scene. It was formative to the cultural scene that was to come, and as all true classic albums do…it stands the test of time. Sure, sometimes you hear it more, sometimes less, and sometimes not at all, but you will never get tired of it or reject it. Few releases can do that. This is an exclusive category, shared with albums such as „Kick Over the Statues“ (The Redskins), „Mai Morirem“ (Opcio K-95), the original Brigada Flores Magon album, and a few select others.
The music, the inspiring lyrics, simply an all time classic.
Highlights (if we can call them that, since there really isnt a poor song on this release)…
Avanzo de Cantiere, live in Rome…
