Music The New Prussian Blue

Now with less racism?
Remember Prussian Blue, the White Nationalist ‘folk-pop’ band fronted by twin girls Lynx and Lamb Gaede? Well, an eye-opening documentary, Nazi Pop Twins, which aired last month in the UK caught up with the girls, now 15 years old, to see how the media attention has changed their lives. The biggest shock is that we learn that the girls are really normal. They just want to play guitar and write love songs—a far cry from the hate pop they recorded when the were 11. It turns out that the girls aren’t into the whole racism thing after all; like other child stars before them, their mother, April Gaede, was just living vicariously through them.
The video is up at Jezebel. The interview is fascinating—and wait until you get a load of the April Gaede’s parenting style. Calling your daughter a “cunt” while the cameras are rolling and your mic is on, and telling her that they way she’s behaving is making her look bad (and not, oh, the racist CDs mom wants her to sign), well, she makes Alec Baldwin look like Parental Role Model of the Year.
