Racist Boyd Rice video interview causes controversyPosted on 21/07/08
An old video featuring Boyd Rice being interviewed by the notorious White Aryan Resistance founder Tom Metzger is creating the necessary mayhem (also on the Side-Line forum). In the clip, a 30 minute long interview of Boyd Rice by Metzger and co-host Tom Padgett for the TV program "Race and Reason", Boyd is talking about fostering an Aryan subculture among industrial rock fans. In the interview Rice furthermore calls Current 93 and Death in June proud 'racialist' bands adding how great Skrewdriver's side project is, Skrewdriver being one of the first white power rock bands. Boyd Rice later in the show points out that industrial/neo-folk is a great new thing for the Aryan movement. From the age given by Tom Metzger, it seems this interview must have been made around 1986.
It is not the first time that Boyd Rice' past is being questioned and it surely not the last time he has been linked to dodgy personnel from the extreme right wing movement. In 1989 for instance, Rice and Bob Heick of the American Front were photographed for Sassy Magazine wearing uniforms and brandishing knives. While Rice would later recall it as a prank, the photo has caused boycotts and protests at many of Rice's appearances. When asked if he regrets the photo, Rice stated, "I don't care. I don't think I ever made a wrong move. The bad stuff is just good. America loves its villains."
Below is the video as posted on YouTube. Feel free to comment.
And for the hardcore Boyd Rice fan, here is a short Pearls Before Swine video cut to make things even more blurry.

Um. Has anyone ever actually SEEN this? The editing is highly suspicious, and the whole thing reads like a young Boyd Rice pulling a prank and getting in WAY over his head.
