“It’s my pleasure to announce “Witchcraft”:
Ok so its kinder like the “Funeral Fog” Hardware division. Its not all about be or my art, but it is all about the having good graphics, good ideas, death metal and generally what I think skateboarding is about. So far in the first run of boards there’s gonna be 3 boards, the smallest is gonna be 8.125” and it goes up from there. I don’t understand how I can make stuff that me or the team won’t ride and generally none of us ride less than 8.125”. The first boards artworks by 3 different Artists, and all boards are always limited to a run of 100 no more. Sam Robert’s formerly of Cock Skateboards, who is generally working on Witchcraft with me. His is a the 8.5”, and is an actual linon cut print of a Witchcraft ritual, set in his home town of Hastings. There’s loads of “Pagan” Wickerman style shit that goes on there, so his looks like a proper wood carved print telling a story. Paul Parker, the man the legend, who’s painting skills are off the chart. He’s made stuff for the lads at Death before. I was so stoked that he wanted to be involved. His is a mental painting of a Witch Doctor cooking up some heads. Mines in there…it’s a Goat, Sword an Occult symbol mix in there…. pretty standard. I drew the Goat ages ago and redrew it for this board. The first run of boards come in a variety of sizes all over 8” these will be available from the end of the month from Rock Solid Distribution in the UK and Iron Distribution in France. All the boards are the best wood and shapes. Artwork from Sam Rober.
The almighty Murdoch Stafford has made an epic shirt design for Witchcraft…. he’s a total beast. There will be hoodies, jackets, beanies and Mesh Caps available soon.
So far the team consists of Jamie “Argh” Morley, Sam Roberts and young blood, Jake Snelling. We have a joint summer tour being planned with Lovenskate for later in the year and possibly. The team is gonna stay pretty small and there will be a website and promo video on line really soon, filmed and edited by Funeral Fog’s grand wizard Alanglass (all one word).
The news page will be run from the Funeral Fog site …. but have a look at the holding page www.witchcrafthardware.com.”
