British Leads to Swedish Pop

The Who, The Spotnicks, The Hives and Randy - YouTube Tuesday on Earth Patrol

On this week’s edition of YouTube Tuesday, check out The Who and The Spotnicks along with two modern Swedish bands that we think you will enjoy as well, The Hives and Randy. EPM “Walk Idiot Walk” Out!

Adding Something Extra

Monday Cover Vol. 3 Issue 41 - Chaz Pineta

Portland is so “down” with skateboarding that they have their own glossary of skatepark terms. Also down with skateboarding is this week’s Monday Cover skater, Chaz Pineta, in the midst of a frontside invert to revert. So what’s a revert? See what Portland Park’s glossary of skaterpark terms has to say about it. Check out a few more pics of Chaz after the turn.

Congratulations Chaz!

Punk Rock PLG

PLG Wins Portland Stop of the 2009 Dew Tour

Well, PLG took top honors at this year’s Portland stop of the 2009 Dew Tour and it’s our belief that the shirt had something to do with it. What’s this, PLG wearing a Dead Milkmen t-shirt or is he? Upon closer inspection, you realize that this is yet again another shoe company “borrowing” punk rock imagery for their own purposes. Sure hope Osiris flipped some dineros the Dead Milkmen’s way for the use of that logo. RIP Dave Blood and check out more pics of punk rock PLG after the turn.

Wicked Pissa

Monday Cover Vol. 3 Issue 40 - Andy Macdonald

It’s a little known fact that Portland, Oregon was almost named Boston. It’s true and it came down to the flip of a coin. Speaking of Boston, this week’s Monday Cover skater and Bostonian, Andy Macdonald, took time out from the rigors of Dew-dom to skate Pier Park. And yeah, that frontside rock on the hip is wicked pissa. Check out more pics of Andy tearing it up after the turn.

Congratulations Andy!
