    And how do we know that they are not marching??? As 2 crossed hammers stationary in The Wall look like 2 CROSSED hammers

    it was actually gerald who came up with it, and according to gerald it was "the only time the art affected the lyrics". i wouldn't have thought Roger came up with it, he's a devoted Arsenal fan.

    I'm kinda glad I stumbled upon this thread. I'm in the planning stages of a Floyd-based tattoo, and one of the images I was thinking of incorporating into it was the crossed hammers.
    Now that I know there's a group like that who uses it as their logo, I'm gonna have to do some reconsidering.

    You'll be glad to hear that just because some poxy Yank fascists have hijacked the symbol, that's ALL they are. Yanks.

    LOL

    I was planning on a half sleeve collage, with the prism at the center and various images (the burning handshake, Battersea, ect.) off of it.
    One of those images was going to be the crossed hammers, but now that I know a racist group has hijacked it, I'm gonna have to think of something else.

    In any case, I have a few years to think it over. I'm working on finishing up a half sleeve on my other arm, and I doubt I could talk the wife into letting me get another one so soon afterwards.

    American skinheads are pretty hilarious... a bunch of pretentious poseurs hanging out in a little shied somewhere like overgrown school kids. They give the old hardcore punk scene a bad name, but I guess they do nothing but the occasional well-policed rally. I wouldn't worry about it.
