Expressway To Your Skull

I hurtled down the old expressway to Hampton Downs on the weekend and checked out some round and round action care of the inaugural Roycroft Trophy event. I love the song Expressway To Your Skull,  by Sonic Youth - the words are killer. Man I wish Sonic Youth had been at Hampton Downs.  They weren't - but this stuff was.











We're gonna kill
the California girls
we're gonna fire the exploding load in the milkmaid maiden head
we're gonna find the meaning
of feeling good
and we're gonna stay there as long as we think we should

It Got Loud.

Head Like A Hole have been recording their new album, heré's brother Ashton laying it down proper. From what I've heard of it, the record is going to be a monster.



I had the exhaust noise test done on the T Bucket yesterday. The great news is that it's only TWICE too loud. Evidently 108 decibels is not acceptable. Oh well.

The Hot Rod Blowout, Nostalgia Drags and other OnePercent Adventures.

Holy shit it's been a full-on couple of weeks. We finished issue 4, got 2 new OnePercent T shirts designed and printed (they'll be for sale on the site soon) got our new stickers happening, made a OnePercent radio ad, Andrew supported Stone Temple Pilots with Head Like A Hole, we went to the Scroungers Hot Rod Blowout AND The Nostalgia Drags.

 First time out for Grease and Andrews new dragster. Total Mind Blower.
 The Lucas-Sanders dragster was Top Eliminator runner up in '67 behind  Bob Rossiter and his Pirate before Grease and Andrew campaigned it for many years.
 Blowout Honouree Squeak Bell and Chris Piaggi

 Mike Udjar's roadster has not been running for 32 years, very special moment to see the man behind the wheel of his machine driving into the Blowout.
 Chris Piaggi's Monkey Mobile took off it's coat of spare parts, old magazines, dust and junk and came out to play.
 We made a new OnePercent radio ad for Hauraki - listen out for it this week.
 Andrew plays guitar in Head Like A Hole - this is the view from the stage at Vector areana, sound check for the Stone Temple Pilots show.
Making drinks in the radio Hauraki studio - this is what the bFM studio uesd to look like.

Nostalgia Drags went down yesterday - beautifull day (apart from the cops busting people at entrance to the service centre on the motorway). Graeme Macneil's truck looked and sounded great with new injection set up.


 Russell iving the old Model A DEATH!


You know what would be really cool? To see this lined up against Pirate for real next year.
