Those of you who skated in the early 90’s with Zac, Richie Hopson, Gorm etc may well have bumped into our friend Richard File skating curbs and ledges schralping in Sutton and Croydon with Curtis McCann and Paul Shier. Since then, he has shared duties with James Lavelle on the U.N.K.L.E project, released a bunch of stuff on Mo’Wax Records and has also co-written the film score to cult film Sexy Beast.
On July 3rd, File’s brand new EP is released to the general public that witnesses a different side of his musical talents than heard before. “Neon One” is 3 tracks of subtle guitar work with an indie feel akin to the likes of Ambulance Ltd, Radiohead and The Verve’s psychedelic offerings, leaving you with subtlety and deepness only found in the higher regions of the Dead Meadow.
The fact that skaters continue to push music all over the world, assures me that music from this EP will end up on a skate video at some point, as lead track Big Mistake would fit like a pork pie in the hands of Shakespeare. Support other skaters and check this record out.
