Pagans MC 1%er Outlaw Biker Gang

“The Pagans MC patch depicts the Norse fire-giant Surtr sitting on the sun, wielding a sword, plus the word Pagan’s [sic] in red, white and blue. Unlike most one percenter motorcycle clubs, the Pagans do not include on their club insignia a bottom rocker indicating the geographical chapter of the member wearing the club’s full patch. It is believed the club declines to follow this one percenter tradition because they do not want law enforcement to know what state chapters individual Pagans belong to.

Members wear blue denim vests called cuts or cutoffs with club patches, known as colors, on the front and back. Symbols of the Pagans also include a black number 13 on the back of their colors (indicating that they are affiliated with the club’s Mother Chapter), the number “4″ (which signifies the motto “live and die”), the number “5″ (which signifies the Nazi SS motto), the number “7″ (an “in memory of” patch) and the number “9″ (the chapter with which the member is affiliated). Nazi or White supremacist patches are also common on the front of the cuts,[8] as are tattoos reading “ARGO” (Ar Go Fuck Yourself) and “NUNYA” (Nun’Ya Fuckin’ Business).”

BLACK FLAG – Rona Barrett TV Interview Tomorrow Coast to Coast NBC 10/11/1981

“Camera crews from the late-night NBC talk show Tomorrow captured footage of
the band’s performance–as well as LAPD cops in riot gear entering the venue and
later charging across Sunset Boulevard at Flag fans who were sarcastically Sieg
Heiling the officers. A mohawked Chuck Dukowski appeared on the show, patiently
explaining to a truly puzzled Rona Barrett that that Black Flag was not part of
the white supremacist movement and it was the LAPD who were the Nazis. It would
be the first of many appearances that Ginn and the ever-quotable Dukowski–”I’m
not a part of the everyday American society. In fact, I do my damnedest to tear
it down,” he told one interviewer–would make in the regional and national media
during the next few months as conflicts with the police continued at Black Flag
and other punk rock shows in Southern California.” – Mojo

2 On The Town – LA Punk Rock News Report From 1981 With BLACK FLAG

2 On The Town was a locally produced Los Angeles news magazine show. Here they report on the local punk scene, focusing on a Dez era Black Flag show at the Starwood. The violence is sensationalized, they repeatedly cuts to a shot of a fight in the audience, even editing it so it repeats, and interview a girl who had her clothing pulled off (seems like the inspiration for the scene in Suburbia). A critical undercover policeman gives his two cents in silhouette, I guess to protect his identity from the ruthless punk rockers. Chuck Dukowski and Greg Ginn share their thoughts on the aggressiveness of the music and it’s fans.
