First please introduce us yourself.
Hello, I’m Mr. Z., I run Loyalty Records label and distribution for years now. I think it’s all I can say about myself.
When you start your activity through your label Loyalty Records? Why you choose this name and what means for you?
I started the label in 2004, when my old friend Ken McLellan gave me permission to release Brutal Attack: Greatest hits volume 2. I’d like to say thanks Ken for giving me a chance to start. I think Loyalty is a good name, it express our ideals, also our NS way of life. Loyalty is one of the most important thing in our time, if you are loyal, people will trust you.
How many releases you have done till now & which was the best for you? You have think to release a Hellenic R.A.C band CD in the future?
We released 10 CDs so far, a split CD as a joint production with Moloko Plus Versand from Germany and a book about Ian Stuart’s life. It is very hard to choose one “best” release, because all of them are special. A parent could not choose a best one from his children. Unfortunately I don’t plan to release any Hellenic R.A.C. CDs in the future, I was asked once already, I think. I know you have some top bands in Hellas, but their CDs don’t selling too good in these downloading times.
Talk us a bit about Hungarian movement present days.
Despite of the constant in-fights, the Hungarian National Resistance is still quite strong, I can say. There are many (maybe too many) organizations, some of them can work with other groups, some can’t. We can’t stick together and fight the common enemy, fight for one goal. That’s why our long time enemies are still in power. The musical scene is quite good, many bands, some good, some not so good. The oppression from the state is getting stronger nowadays, it means the strong will be more stronger, the weak will leave our ranks and will find another hobby or fashion. If the pressure is getting stronger, the weak ones, who think our movement is for fun, will go. That’s no problem.
You support any specifically organization?
We don’t want to join any in-fights in the scene, so we don’t support any organization, if it could bring us in trouble with other organizations… The only organization we support 100% is Skins 4 Skins Hungária, they work for helping comrades in jail or having problems with the justice. All the money they get goes to good place, so we gave them CDs to sell many times for the good cause.
What about your POW there? How many you have & what kind of support you give them?
We have some POWs over here, see above, we support Skins 4 Skins as they do a brilliant job to help those guys in trouble. S4S is a dedicated group, who can help POWs with lawyers, money, other support…That’s why we support S4S!
I think some ns demonstrations cancelled last year…some infos? What kind of war you have from state & society?
Yes, the pressure from ZOG is getting harder, they try to cancel and stop international meetings, they seem don’t want Hungary to be an NS meeting point in Europe anymore. We had some “easy years”, we could organize anything with big turn up from abroad, now only Hungarian bands can play without problems. The state doesn’t want to let the NS getting stronger, so they try to stop some events. Society has enough problems with living, constant violence of gypsies, etc. They have no problems with us, I think.
What you know about Hellenic scene & history?
We have learned a lot about old Hellenic history, big battles, ancient gods, etc at school. Hellenic history is fantastic, many brave heroes fought against alien invaders from other countries, continents…We should have more heroes , like them today, life would be much more easier! Hellenic scene is quite good, many good bands during the years, Iron Youth was your top band, my recent favourite is Straightline! We know about G.D, I don’t know what’s going on with them recently.
How is the economical situation in your country?
We are in the EU too, so what do you think? Catastrophic. Without the EU, Hungary was in much better economic situation. EU should be collapsed soon, it destroyed the whole European economics. Thanks to it’s chosen leaders!
Your future plans as a label? You have any other material except CDs? Give us your website.
We are trying to stay alive, that’s our plan for the future! We need more collectors, who can keep the music scene going in these times of downloads…If you don’t buy CDs, young bands are deserved to die, no labels will release their material. Yes, we released a book too, maybe we will release more in the future. You can check: http://www.loyalty-records.com/shop/
Thank you very much comrade! Last words & a message to our readers.
Thanks for your interest, Hellenic comrades! Keep up the good work!
All the best: Loyalty records team.
