Toot: BJM Yeah Yeah

A few years ago we were lucky enough to see Brian Jonestown Massacre play in Bristol (UK). What a night that was, topped off by this song, Yeah Yeah.

As the band worked their way into the tune, we got chatting with the friendly drug dealer and his girlfriend who had been drawing their own crowd all evening for their possessed dancing – arms flailing, flowery shirt and beads flying. Our new mate tried selling us produce but we told him we don’t do drugs (weren’t even drinking that night), to which he was pleasantly surprised and enthusiastic, admitting that neither he nor his missus does either and the whole ‘on a trip’ look was simply good for business. We had a good laugh and then all danced flailingly together. Such is the power of music, we guess?

Anyway. The Tune of our Tuesday. Here’s an excellent rendition.

Connor Fearon Ripping it Up Flashbacks: Part 1

Kona’s Connor Fearon is one of our all-time favourite people to watch ride a bike. His flat-pedal style is effortless but also aggressive, full of steeze and quite simply a pleasure to spectate. He’s been missing from the World Cup scene for the last couple of races due to injury so we’re getting our fix from some of the superrad flicks he’s been in over the last couple of years.

Here’s part 1, Konnar testing the new (old now) Process 29. So sick. The film is also so cool. Mellow, atmospheric, inspiring. We want to go ride in Tassie now. Props to Joonas Vinnari, the super cool dude behind the film, and second camera Jasper.
