A Few Words With Busy P

29 April 2010, 18.36 | Posted in music, skateboarding | No comments »

Busy P Ottawa

I recently had the chance to interview Pedro Winter (aka Busy P), Pierre-Andre Senizergues (founder of etnies) and So Me (Ed Banger art director) for Highsnobiety. During our conference call Busy P revealed his previously undocumented (as far as I can find) Ottawa connection.

Here’s the extended edit. RC exclusive!

Pedro: Of course, we are going to party. I don’t know where you guys are living…

Nick: I can easily be in New York.

Lady: Pete lives in Ottawa.

Pedro: Oh, you are in Ottawa? I spend most of my younger holidays in Ottawa.

Pete: Really?

Pedro: My father used to live in Gatineau.

Pete: Cool, I live right across the river.

Pedro: OK. You know when I was younger, I used to go to this place to buy t-shirts called Local Motion… no, no… Rock Junction. My older brother used to bring me there.

Pete: That’s right across from a skateboard shop called Top of the World. [topoftheworld.com]

Pedro: Oh yes, I know this.

Nose Before Hoes & MACHOTAILDROP

Nose Before Hoes MACHOTAILDROP Peter Williams
If Nose Before Hoes were a Tumblr, it would be called fuckyeahfrankgerwersnose. If that doesn’t mean anything to you: it’s a photo blog dedicated to Frank Gerwer’s nose, and it’s amazing.

In related news, I recently got my hands on a copy of MACHOTAILDROP and pulled some shots of Gerwer as “Frank Nose.” Check em all after the click. Thanks Annie!

Dead Snow – Norwegian Nazi Zombies!

Rad Collector Peter Williams - Dead Snow

I still haven’t seen Frozen, but at this point Norway’s Dead Snow takes it for best cold-weather horror flick of the year. Unfortunately there’s no snowboarding, but we do get a taste of extreme snowmobiling (snow-scootering? Ha. See the trailer.) Anyways, let’s get to the point: Nazi Zombies. If you like the sounds of that (it’s Evil Dead style) you won’t be disappointed.

Check the trailer below. Can’t hate on Scandinavian snow bunnies (well, unless they have dreads.)
