Shirt: the Accüsed - the Curse Of Martha Splatterhead
Source: Does any one give thrasher Magazine for creating a genre of Music? I mean would skate rock exist if they didn’t put out skate rock comps? i mean the music might, but the title sure as hell wouldn’t. so here i am taking a moment to thank Thrasher Magazine for amongst a million other things, giving us Skaterock.
I have been listening to shitloads of skate rock recently ever since the Faction announced their club show in San Jose, i have just had those songs coursing through my veins. One song / band i completely forgot about was the band Ungh! do any of you remember this album…Cement?
I’m almost sure that you do if you give a shit about this blog and owned a skateboard in the 90’s. it would shave been spoken about tin the same breath as Drunk Injuns, McRad, Odd Man out and Skate Master Tate.
So ilistened to this song last night.. “Skate Affrikaana” and thought to myself at first, is this LCD Soundstsytem?
Is this where James Murphy found his inspiration from? i mean come on the Cow bell, the beat, its uncanny. And how crazy is it that this was Skaterock in 1988. My mind was a little blown away for a second. so bizarre but awesome, but at the same time funny how this band was way before their time.
NONE of the above has to do with the Accüsed i know, but i tried to find a shirt that had something to do with skate rock and this was all i could find. the Accüsed are a whole different beast with some crazy vocal stylings that i liked but never loved but again one of them bands where the art and the culture was so intertwined with my life i learned to love them. now i think i love them way more that i used to, or appreciate them way more.
Man Skaterock. thanks again Thrasher
