FSU Gang

Elgin James
FSU Founder Elgin James

Elgin James, also known as Elgin Nathan James, helped form the controversial street gang Friends Stand United (FSU) in the early 1990s. He is also a musician and a filmmaker.

After a short time in orphanages and foster homes, Elgin James (who is of mixed race) was raised by civil rights activists on a rural farm in the Northeast.

One piece of advice. FSU hard-cores need to find somebody nice and get married. Check this out

With a crop of marijuana in the backyard and alcohol and drug abuse in the house, Elgin formed strong anti-drinking/drug beliefs. Those beliefs would later lead him to be a pivotal figure in the nineties militant straight edge movement.

In Boston he began singing for hardcore punk band Wrecking Crew and befriended a group of kids from the tough Boston neighborhoods Brockton and South Boston. They started FSU (sometimes known as Friends Stand United, but began as Fuck Shit up) in violent response to the number of Neo-Nazi skinhead hate groups on the rise across the country.

FSU was made up of a handful of Irish, Black and Puerto Rican kids. Since they were usually outnumbered by their ‘enemies’ (Nazi skinheads, other street gangs) they compensated with viciousness. They would use makeshift weapons such as hammers, Cue balls in a sock and even a human thighbone. Soon racist skinheads, who had been such a common sight at Boston hardcore and punk rock shows, became obsolete. FSU‘s numbers began to grow and they started traveling to tackle the racist problem in surrounding states.

That is where you should put your flyers. Unless this is something that everyone would be interested in, don’t waste your time, money, and effort blanketing the streets to put the flyers on doors. And definately stay away from the mailboxes…you just may get charged with a federal offense!
