BROKEN TEETH / THE MONGOLOIDS - Split

Location: Manchester / New Jersey
Broken Teeth. Manchester, UK. Made quite a name for themselves, their previous EP was a bomb. Here in this international split 7" they present 2 brand new songs, expect nothing but heavy music (done the right way)!

The Mongoloids. New Jersey, US. Unfortunately they just announced they are quitting in the next few months and this will be their second to last release. A band that tried something different and succeeded. In a scene such as the hardcone one, it rarely happens nowadays. Crazy arts and mongo stomps to terminate your boredom.



UK version has 2 vinyl colors and a screen printed cover drawn by tattoo artist Tompkins. US version has 3 colors to choose from and artwork signed by Lawson.

No Redeeming Social Value - Slumlords

Location: Queens + Baltimore
Release: Conformist Recs. + Juke Boxxx, 2005 [out of print]

I fuckin' luv N.R.S.V. Its classic NYHC, funny as hell and has the illest live performances. ATTENTION! This is not suitable for the faint of heart or virgin people, it will mess you up! Songs about booze, eating disorder, tattoos, 40 oz. malt liquors, butter, microwaves and other wacky subjects as a result of large consumption of alcohol aggravated by hallucinogenic substances.

They started in '93 Queens, NY and has Vinny Value (Warzone) playing the drums from time to time. Celebrating 25 years of existence they did dozens of records, world tours and insane video clips! One of those records was a split with another fine hardcore group, Baltimore's SLUMLORDS featuring Jeff Perlin (Breakdown) on vocals. They own some equally hilarious lyrics backed by that heavy NY Oi! sound.

I got my hands on the japanese version of that split album, filled with extras. They play each others songs, live recordings and a few videos! GADEMM!

My God Rides a Skateboard Mixtape


4 years motherfuckers! GADEMM!! To celebrate the blog's anniversary I chose 3 friends and asked them to pick 4 songs each, songs to shred and burn on the sidewalk surfin'.

The last time I did a compilation was 2 years ago, the 2 Years Retrospective Compilation with a contribution from Arty Straight On View! Now here's 4 different takes on skate music:

MYSELF (aka Mene, Mariano, CcLaw, Dr.F-R ..)

00. CRISPUS ATTUCKS - MY GOD RIDES A SKATEBOARD [Spermbirds] 
01. XFILESX - Long Boards Are Wrong Boards
02. BONES BRIGADE - Rock To Fakie
03. SSS - Purple Reign
04. SUICIDAL TENDENCIES - Go Skate!



Faço das palavas do Max Scholastic as minhas "[...]this is not just about how lame ESPN and the corporate take-over of skateboarding is; its also about some very wrong assumptions that most skaters hold. Skateboarding is not a sport. And guess what, IT IS a crime. Relish in that fact. Don't fucking get co-opted by your local city council when you're fighting for your 'legal right to skate'. Ever since I was in 4th grade I had to run from the pigs - deal with it. Enjoy the fact that you are DESTROYING  property that is owned by a bank, corporate office, post office, the federal government! That's what this is about, to fucking mark up their pristine ledges, stairs, curbs, rails, to destroy the rich's renovated pools. Fuck all of them!" - SHACKLE ME NOT


RICK PELLARIO (Clearview's vox, 90's skater and gym rat)

05. EXODUS - Hammer of Life
06. GOOD RIDDANCE - Heresy Hypocrisy Revenge [Fat Version]
07. PENNYWISE - X Generation
08. xJUSTICEx - Push It To The Edge



"Aproximadamente uns 11 minutos e pouco de insanidade musical apropriado para quem gosta de destruir no skate. Essa é a trilha ideal para um role veloz de skate, seja fazendo downhill, voando alto nas rampas ou mesmo destruindo as ruas! Longboard é pra quem usa sapatenis; mountainboard não é skateboard e essa moda de skatinho minúsculo que você só consegue remar e nada além disso, meu amigo(a), escuta essa trilha sonora e mude o seu conceito, ok? Estou dando a dica, então curta essa trilha porque o resto é contigo!
Mantenha o skateboarding um crime!"


MARCELO BASTOS (dedicated LO-FI drummer and a Zorlac appreciator)

09. MUNICIPAL WASTE – The Fatal Feast
10. R.K.L. – Break the Camels Back
11. LAGWAGON – Foiled Again
12. ALL – World on Heroin [Live]


"Uma bela tarde de domingo e eu saio para a rua da minha pequena cidade com meu skate.
Não canso de ver o mesmo cenário de sempre: playboys com seus carros turbinados e tocando música de merda, igrejas lotadas depois das 20h, mendigos deitados na rua de ressaca e penso: que lixo de lugar.
Coloco meus fones no ouvido e o skate no pé e começo a imaginar como seria um mundo melhor: zumbis tentando comer o resto de cérebro que sobrou depois de tanta droga que estes playboys consumiram, meteoros caindo em cima de seus carros de som, fazendo um verdadeiro barulho, a polícia tentando conter tudo isso mas sendo atacada por naves alienígenas de um planeta não muito distante, igrejas pegando tanto fogo que a água benta não pode apagar e por fim os mendigos ainda na rua deitados de ressaca.
Droga, acabou a música, de volta a realidade cruel..."


STEVE LIMA (legit old school skater and punk rocker)

13. CEREBRAL BALLZY - Sk8 All Day
14. MINUS ONE - The Kids Dont Skate Here
15. EIGHT DAYZ - Whats So Strange About Me
16. McRAD - Violin

"Bem-vindo à Venice, cidade fundada em 1905, e criada como homônimo da Venice italiana, com uma idéia inicial de ser um resort praiano e ser a Veneza americana. Situada na ensolarada Califórnia próximo de Los Angeles e Santa Barbara, Venice Beach é famosa por suas praias, canais, e principalmente pelo “calçadão” com 4 km de extensão, uma grande atração turística onde é possível se locomover em caminhadas, corridas, bike, skate, patins, etc, e como em qualquer lugar é um grande centro urbano também onde se encontra de tudo, desde lojas, vendedores ambulantes, artistas, performances musicais, adivinhos, etc.
Considerada um dos berços do skate onde nasceram alguns dos mais conhecidos Z-Boys, como Stacy Peralta, Jay Adams, Jim Muir entre outros, está situada no triângulo praiano conhecido por ‘Dogtown’ abrangendo uma marcação através de uma linha divisória imaginária com as cidades de Santa Monica, Ocean Park e Venice Beach."
