The other night while preparing for the Vol. 2 prerelease party, we got a call from our friend Fred saying he was at the airport and would be pulling up to the spot soon, and asking if we could pay for his cab. 40 minutes and $40 later, Fred popped up holding a beer in one hand and a nutcracker in the other. There was still a few hours to go before the party started, but after an hour of “taste testing” Fred was feeling good and asked to check out the book.
Knowing “good content” when we see it, we ripped off some other skate publication and mic’d Uncle Freddy up for a quick gander. (After this recording, he took a nap before rejoining the party.)
