A Look at White Power Music Today
by T.K. Kim
After Panzerfaust Records collapsed in early 2005, when racists discovered that Panzerfaust founder Anthony Pierpont's mother was Mexican and that he had bragged in E-mails about having sex with Asian prostitutes, Pierpont's partner Bryan Cecchini seized control of Panzerfaust's Web site. Cecchini redirected users to a new white-power music distribution site, Free Your Mind Productions. Since then, Cecchini, an aging Skinhead who goes by the alias Byron Calvert, has turned Free Your Mind Productions into a major force in white-power music, with the help of the Confederate Hammerskins.
Panzerfaust's former Webmaster, Tom Martin, now runs the Free Your Mind site and acts as a moderator on its message forums. Martin and Cecchini have gone to great lengths to disassociate themselves from Panzerfaust and the disgraced Pierpont. The FYMP site carries a bold declaration that any deals with Pierpont by anyone in the movement "should be looked at as an act of treason."
