It might be said it’s been a fairly weak few months for riding stuff on the internet, but amongst some absolutely dire videos which have cropped up lately, here’s a few odds and ends that are maybe worth your time. Vintage Dan Price shot snapped by Ed Docherty.
Reach for the joss-sticks and defrost those Linda McCartney sausages… the Street Mystics video from a while back is now online in a mildly remixed form. Not only is there a clip of Amos Burke riding at night in a knitted Wu-Tang jumper, but there’s around three minutes of solid gold Dan Price footage… only 17 years after the above photo was taken, and 20 years after he got the front cover of Ride.
No idea who Kazuei Oimatsu is, but he does some pretty cool stuff in this short video in cahoots with Japan’s RODI Connect. Nice khaki slacks there too.
Again, not much is known about this video, but it seems like some people from Japan decided to go to Taiwan for a while and ride some pretty exquisite-looking spots at night.
Tim does a few icepicks in this London video.
It’s no Absolute Radio 90s, but if you’ve had your fill of The Bluetones for a while, then this podcast with the people behind Act Like You Know isn’t bad for those with ample time to kill. Two hours worth of chat about spots and videos and that kind of thing, along with the usual ‘state-of-the-industry’ type stuff that’s easy enough to skip through.
And finally, it has now been over 20 years since Don’t Quit Your Day Job came out. Watch this and then hunt down your nearest loading dock ledge.
