The New Prussian Blue

posted by on August 13 at 15:22 PM

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.

Who the hell names their kids after a predator and a prey animal? I mean, wouldn't a lynx eat a lamb? I'm pretty sure a lynx would eat a lamb. It's like naming your kids Alligator and Chicken or Fatman and Bucket-of-KFC.

And the fat man shall lie down with the Bucket-of-KFC, and they will be best of friends.

In three more years they can leave home and claim they were raised as orphans.

Hard to say -- but if she did I'm reasonably confident Charles would post pictures of it on Slog and figure out a way to use Classical philosophy to explain to us all why sister-on-sister love is the highest intellectual achievement of western culture.

i did like the prussian blue song(s?) i've heard. cool recording qualite and nice nasally choirgirl sound. might be the lyrics are likelywritten by the mom. reminding me though of the olsen twins, or whoever those twins are in LA Ashley kate and sister kinda weird.

Judah, can you find some sister-on-sister porn for us/me? I've had a repressed day, ala perversion.

Dude, if you can't find your own pr0n on the internet you don't deserve my help or anyone else's.

Ooooh, so that's where Peter David got the inspiration for the current X-Factor storyline.

Does this mean that you are going to take them off the "enemies of Slog" list?

The article I read said that they weren't ashamed of their lyrics but that they were ashamed to have tossed about with narrative like some stupid schoolgirls or Ayn Rand...or TV.

Funny, I didn't see this and just emailed you guys about this video (given that they're on your "People We Hate" list). Almost gives you hope for the future.
