Since team Zephyr first slid around cones in the mid-70s car parks of Santa
Monica, getting down (literally) to Hendrix and The Stooges, US outsider
rock and pop has gone hand in hand with skateboarding.
From Black Flag to Bad Brains, from Blink 182 to Wavves, homemade videos of kickflips, Patiner rail rides and failed stair jumps wouldn’t be the same without the disillusioned bark of ’80s hardcore or daft slacker punk pop.
In the UK we spend years thinking that skateboarding is just for kids; now
the cast of Made In Chelsea do it. And thanks to the DIY revival that shows
no sign of slowing down, party bands like FIDLAR are even named after skate culture acronyms, Patiner while Odd Future having reintroduced thrashing and grip tape to young fans of hip-hop.
The music of Toro Y Moi, then, might seem a little at odds with skate
culture. It’s neither breakneck nor stemmed from punk rock,
even if it is definitely DIY.
Bundick rediscovered his love for skating while making
this year’s ‘Anything In Return’ LP, his third in three years, his
most upbeat record and his most progressive. Patiner As a kid he
when to skate camp. Workshop.
You don’t have to look far to find an opportunity to win a pair of the trainers online (you can enter competitions on both the Vans and Toro Y Moi sites),
and 100 more pairs will be given away as Bundick tours the States in
February 2014, but that’s a long way to go for a free pair of trainers. No one,
as far as we can tell, is giving away one of the limited Alien Workshop decks, Patiner though, which are available in selected stores (again, in the US) from October
So we thought we’d put that right, as we’ve managed to get hold of one.
