Moish's Consolidated Ad

Man it was sad to hear of Moish's passing in his sleep on Saturday. I was lucky enough to call him a friend. I met him At Bro Prints in 1995 and ended up making this Consolidated ad in 1997 with Moish Arron Bro Clark and Dave Nelson I thought up the idea as I was driving over Hwy 17, told them my idea and it was on. The best part was I wanted Moish to were a wrestling outfit, which he actually just happened to have!!! I was like holly shit, you just happened to have a fucking wrestling outfit? And the rest we just impromptu and this is what we ended up with. I just recently showed Birdo the ad, he had never seen the video until recently, he was very stoked on it.

the Gears! July 9 seriously good music....

This feature length documentary tells the story of 1970’s punk band The Gears – in their own words.
Rising as young boys and friends in North East Los Angeles these musicians self styled an infectious brand of surf/rockabilly/punk, which they still play today. “Don’t Be Afraid To Pogo” chronicles singer Axxel G. Reese and The Gears’ history in amazing detail, while allowing their stream-of-consciousness interviews to play out.
Great archival footage and photos of this overlooked band, includes a wide variety of neighborhood contributors along the way- a rare event in the rock doc genre.
Interviews with Freddie Cannon (Legendary rock singer), Mike Watt (Minutemen), Johnny Stingray (The Controllers/Kaos), Billy Bones (The Skulls), Steve Metz (Mad Society) Miss Mercy (GTO’s) and East L.A. born artist Richard Duardo and watch for snippets of animation from low brow genius Kalynn Campbell. Heartfelt and respectful. Don’t miss it.
Directed by Chris Ashford, 95 min, 2015.
