Discourage records on 1737 SE Morrison Street is selling music by white power band SKREWDRIVER, including "Blood and Honour", an overtly racist album. In a recent e-mail confronting the selling of white power music, they replied "It doesn't matter, it's punk rock." What the fuck!!! First of all, punk rock by definition is anti-racist. Secondly, just because SKREWDRIVER may have a "punk" sound, does not mean that they are Punk Rock. Racism and fascism is not an ethic valued by punx. Punx used to wear swastika's on their clothing (as a sick joke for shock effect--which does not justify it)back in th '77 days. Does that mean discourage would be justified in selling Nazi paraphernalia if they chose to do so? Would the Punk/Skin (traditional, anti-racist kind of course) and anti-racist/fascist community let them get away with it? Hell no, we wouldn't. What if Discourage began selling local white power music such as INTIMIDATION ONE, a white power band based out of Portland, that falsely claims to be Oi!? There is no fucking way the local anti-fascist community, let alone local Punx & Skins would allow Discourage to sell thier music. Selling anything of a racist or fascist nature, Punk Rock or not (what ever your definition of "Punk" is) is never justified, and should not be allowed, or tolerated. Call Discourage records at(503)528-1093, or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to let them know your opposition to Nazi sympathy (that's what it is isn't it? making money off white power music?). Go to Discourage records and demand them to burn or break the fucking albums. Boycott thier shop. Go to Brick Wall records on NE 7th & Dekum instead. Fight white power, and anything remotely related to it, including white power bands, and the records stores who sell the music.
