I love skateboarding, man.
Like LOVE love.
Ever since my older cousin Otto showed me a dub of Blind’s Video Days on the front TV of our abuelita’s crib, I’ve remained deeply in love with both skateboarding and any and all things made by Spike Jonze.
Anyways, FEELIN GOOD, FEELIN SK8 is a new series where I’ll share with you clips that I find fresh from the world of skateboarding. And for today’s inaugural entry we have one of the hardest clips of all-time from Ishod Wair and his part from the Nike SB Chronicles Volume 2.
Also for the uninitiated, you gotta know that skate videos always have the illest music from all corners of the sound spectrum. Shit, I think like 40% of the dope music that resides in my mental archives has come from skate videos or skate YouTube. And this song “Politicians In My Eyes” sent me down a rabbit hole where I learned about DEATH—a band from Detroit that consisted of three musician brothers—and their history as being the band that basically birthed the punk sound without the world ever knowing nor giving them their credit mainly because the labels wanted them to change their name but eldest brother told the labels 🖕 and was willing to watch their future chances vanish in the name of sticking to their guns.
FUCK YEAH, DUDE. THAT’S ABOUT AS PUNK AS IT GETS.
Okay, enough talking…here is Ishod ripping, and I’ve got the DEATH joint right below for you because I’m a nice guy.
OH SHIT I EVEN FOUND A LINK TO THE FULL DOC! I GUESS TODAY IS YOUR LUCKY DAY…AND DON’T SAY I DON’T TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOU!!
