Mixtape | Shred Wednesday

S&S proudly presents the Shred Wednesday Mixtape. Since June, Guest-author Ian and I have been diving into the musical selections of our favorite skateboarding videos. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring this taste-shaping combination of art forms. Hopefully you've had fun with it too. Odds are, you haven't flooded your iTunes with all 20+ hours of albums that these posts have covered. So here's the best of the best.

After each hump day, Ian added another gem to his Shred playlist, and probably somewhere around Curtis Mayfield, realized this might become a rad mix. I think we're both a bit surprised at how many plays it's been getting. Who knew M83 could segue Bowie to the Stones? Who even knew of The Chocolate Watchband?

Be patient, it's a big mediafire zip.

We featured Thomas' part from Welcome to Hell here: http://stadiums-and-shrines.blogspot.com/2009/07/shred-wednesday-skate-video_22.html

Iron Maiden should probably be on there huh. We'll make good on the next one. Maybe Templeton's Sonic Youth part.
