Rocker Pete Doherty was hauled off stage at a weekend music festival in Germany after he began signing Nazi anthem “Deutschland, Deutschland ueber alles” during his set, reports said on Monday.

Revellers at the on3 festival in Munich booed and shouted at Doherty, but he carried on singing until organisers removed him from the stage, Bavaria’s TZ newspaper reported.

Doherty’s tirade was broadcast live on Bavarian public radio, the festival’s organisers.

“We decided to stop Peter Doherty’s appearance on stage as quickly as possible,” organisers Bayerischer Rundfunk said in a statement.

While the verse is not banned in Germany, it has not been sung since World War II because of its close links with Adolf Hitler.

Peter Doherty was born in Hexham, Northumberland, England, the son of Jacqueline (Michels), who was of paternal Jewish descent, and Peter John Doherty, who was of Irish descent. (wiki)

And the subsequent and quasi-inevitable apology, from NME:

”[He] wanted to celebrate his appearance in Munich by assimilating and integrating with the crowd, something he tries do wherever he goes,” she explained.

“He was unaware of the controversy surrounding the German national anthem and he deeply apologises if he has caused any offense,” the singer’s spokesperson continued.

“Peter himself is from Jewish descent and has fought against racism and fascism with numerous organisations including Love Music Hate Racism,” she added. “This is a subject he feels very strongly about.”

Massive Attack will return early next year with Heligoland, their fifth studio album.

Despite keeping busy on the release front with a greatest hits collection and a number of film scores, it was six years ago that we welcomed a new Massive Attack studio LP to the world. After working on 2003’s 100th Window largely by himself, Robert “3D” Del Naja is reunited with Grant “Daddy G” Marshall on Heligoland, with the usual slate of high-profile guest vocalists including Damon Albarn, Hope Sandoval, Martina Topley-Bird, Guy Garvey and Tunde Adebimpe this time around, in addition to long-term collaborator Horace Andy who has appeared on every Massive Attack album to date. Albarn also contributes bass to “Flat of the Blade” and keyboards on “Splitting the Atom” while Adrian Utley of Portishead plays guitar on “Saturday Come Slow.” Tim Goldsworthy of DFA fame, meanwhile, is also reported to have been involved behind the boards on selected cuts.

Both original tracks from the Splitting the Atom EP, which was released back in September, make the grade, and the remixed numbers “Bulletproof Love” and “Psyche” (re-rubbed by Van Rivers & The Subliminal Kid and Flash Treatment, respectively) appear in their original form.

The band have also announced selected tour dates in Newport, Brighton and London for early next, with a percentage of the ticket money being donated to the Hoping Foundation.
