Texas Rednecks
16 September 2004 | by (Biel, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

I just saw SKINHEAD ATTITUDE on video, and I think his excellent. Nice ska music with interviews of Jimmy Pursey from 'Sham 69' or ska legend Laurel Aitken, just to name a few. The movie shows the difference between the traditional, anti racist skins, like they were in the beginning of the late 60's and the fascist white-power skinheads.

I just got a little bit angry that they had to show a bunch of cousin married, white-trash, racist Texan rednecks. If you look at them they have absolutely nothing to do with the skinhead cult. They're not even dressed like skinheads. Just some mad, white power scum.

p.s. the girl (a 22 year old skingirl from France called Karole) who travels with the film maker around the world, is really cute!
