These were the words of Eric Clapton, followed hot on the heels by David Bowie's unbelievable admiration of Adolf Hitler.
Since then, thanks to Rock Against Racism and lately Love Music Hate Racism, musicians have been relunctant to become involved with fascism.
Sadly, also hailing from the Midlands, a popular clubbing DJ /promoter/producer who DJs in Nottingham has been exposed as being a BNP activist. A 21 year old speedcore DJ called "Crazy2nr" was listed on the BNP membership list as a racist activist for the far right party, the contents of which is now in the public domain.
Sadly, "Crazy 2nr" is a highly paid resident at the Blueprint Nightclub on Alfreton road, Nottingham. (see the following review in the national newspaper The Metro): -
It is feared by anti-fascists that DJ Crazy2nr (AKA Mr Shane Coxhead of Stanwick Alfreton, Derbyshire), has been using regular events at the Blueprint Nightclub in Nottingham to reach out to young fans with his message of race hate, to win clubbers over to fascist ideals.
Sadly the promoters of this event which are a company from Holland do not realise that one of their resident DJs is a nazi - not merely a silent member but a BNP activist - and performs alongside DJS from the whole of Europe. Someone like this, must not be allowed to become famous so they are able to use their infamy to pollute impressionable minds.
Lancaster Unity is a regular supporter of Love Music Hate Racism, so it would be fitting if this blog could alert clubbers in Nottingham (and their parents) over the very tangible fears that that weekend clubbings sessions may be used to recruit young speedcore lovers to race hatred.
Anybody who is concerned for the mental and physical wellbeing of young people should contact the company behind the Rigormortis events, asking them to sack the (allegedly) white supremacist DJ.

How many black, Asian, gay and Jewish clubbers know that there is an active nazi in their midst, spinning records to an increasing number of fans?
Coxhead (Crazy 2nr) is part of Nick Griffin's concerted efforts to reach out to a younger audience just like the National Front tried to achieve through Eric Clapton and David Bowie through bars and nightclubs.
Concerned clubbers and parents should contact the venue direct, insisting that the venue stops hosting the event is Coxhead isn't fired from his Rigormortis residency.
It is worth remembering that it is the prerogative of club promoters to decide who they will and will not pay to perform, and normally DJs do not often sign legal contracts of employment.
Getting rid of a (seemingly) neo-nazi DJ from a nightclub is an ethical choice that most clubbers would support, given the black music origins of popular electronic music.
House music began in a Chicago nightclub called the Warehouse, which was popular with a young, vibrant black and gay audience, and house music was an offshoot from disco, whih came from funk and soul, with beats that came out from Africa.
Hopefully, with the help of your readers you can assist the campaign to rid the dance music scene of racial hatred. We're not just talking Nottingham, but emerging DJ Shane Coxhead has also played at large parties in Holland, the country where Anne Frank died.
Hopefully, if promoters are made aware of his fascist activism, Cockhead's (excuse the spelling mistake) bookings will dry up overnight.
