IFHMM

I fucking hate Monday morning. And yes... I have a serious fucking case of the Mondays.

Why the acronym? Today we're talking about East Vancouver's (I believe now dead) S.T.R.E.E.T.S., which stands for 'Skateboarding totally rules everything else totally sucks'. Honestly, with a name like that, I'm not sure how we didn't hear about these guys sooner.

They garnered a decent sized following early in the turn of the century by creating thrash metal focused around skateboarding and general stupidity. In Vancouver, this is a pretty good way to build a crowd.

I'm tired, bitchy and still kinda hungover from London this weekend, so I won't drone on too long. What I will tell you is to go check out the song Peace on Earth on their myspace, and to watch the video below with glee. SO MUCH HAIR!



-You know what's great? Beer.
PS: Happy birthday, Willsy

Update: If you're a fan, I just found that the boys posted their 2006 release 'Invaders from Gnars' up for download right here

Dude, these guys are RAD! The video was awesome. You could picture this being on the soundtrack to a West Coast skate vid.

Also, on an unrelated note, go find this song:

Choking Victim - Crack Rock Steady.
