OLD SCHOOL SKATERS
“I like the culture and aesthetic of skateboarding. From there I became interested in the music and other elements that crossed over".
"We liked the idea that skateboarding was a little outlaw and by the late 70s, all the underground music was the soundtrack to what we did".
"I’ve always said this from day one - Punk Rock’s not about how you dress, it’s more about your attitude".
“I was an outlaw biker. I owned an art gallery and then a bong shop on Acland Street. This later became the first skate shop in St. Kilda - Apache Junction".
"The punk scene in the 80's was really violent and aggressive, but everyone was out to look after each other and I really liked that".
"The punk scene back then wasn’t just music, or just skating, or just anti - establishment. It was blend of everything".
