A Look at White Power Music Today
by T.K. Kim
Formed in Texas in 2004, the staff at Old Guard Records promise to supply "ass-kicking rock and roll!" so long as it's white-power rockers doing the kicking. Unlike most hate rock distributors, which accept online credit card orders, Old Guard accepts only money orders mailed to a P.O. box – a sign of how small and shaky this business apparently still is.
In addition, Old Guard Records only has one album for sale, a recording by Youngblood, a band from Orange County, Calif., that once participated in neo-Nazi "Rock Against Communism" concerts. But the label has made some headway by working with the highly popular movement band Max Resist on its next album.
