Propaganda Is Hippies

Finland's most feral bands, Kieltolaki, Viemann Kolonna, Vaarinkasitys, Totuus, Sotatila, Omaisuusvahinko and Yhteiskunaan Ystavat gather forces to kick ass, but my favorite is the neck-snapping fury of Vaarinkasitys. If you hunger for bands with names you can't pronounce, get Propaganda Is Hippies in your earholes now!

Now is a play off Nigel Pepper Cock or the other way around?

I don't follow you.

Didnt Nigel Pepper Cock have an album called Punk is Hippies? Call me dumb but I never knew what that meant.

Aesop said...

Not that I know of, but it is a play on the old GISM slogan "Punks Is Hippies"

another question about the title: do you think its a reference to the way talk about peace, love, multiculturalism, and other liberal bullshit functions as capitalist ideology? if so that's pretty awesome. i've been looking a long time for bands that play left wing d-beat/crust/whatever without the spineless anarcho-hippie shit. oh and the music is absolutely ripping but that goes without saying.

I think GISM was referring to the touchy feely nonsense in political punk at the time. GISM was nihlist and deconstructivist in that way.
