MESH von den ALL OUT KINGS aus New York hat vor kurzem ein Video online gestellt das ihn selbst sowie seine Crewkollegen REAS und VEN live in Aktion zeigt, und zwar 1989, im 57igsten Subway Street lay-up New York. Seltenes Super 8 Material im Video nach dem Jump!
Mesh Reas Ven AOK (All Out Kings) Graffiti : Super Rare 80’s Subway Bombing Video
This is super-rare 80’s film footage of the All Out Kings: Mesh Reas and Ven bombing the 57th Street lay-up in New York City around 1989.
Other than the movies Wildstyle and Style Wars, I know of no other footage of actual train bombing from the 80’s.
This is it: Film # 3.
And as far as it being actual film of bombing – not video, that would again apply to all time I believe as this, Wildstyle and Style Wars being all there is.
Finally released. Enjoy.
I’m Mesh. That’s me up in there (allegedly) –
That’s my man Smog up in there too in the video.
That crazy looking abstract squiggly car that shows in the first half of the video was from a previous night with my musical partner, Flasha TR Nation. We’re joined at the hip even onto today. Right, bro? We just bugged and played with the absurd (even like you see in that S of the mini Mesh piece at the end of the other car) in those letters. It reads: Mesh Flasha. This is after I had done burners if anyone wants to know. Just wanted to be absurd that night and push the limit of what’s acceptable, what’s predictable and even expected within graffiti. I think it took 20 more years for people to go against the grain like that and poke fun at the very act of what you’re doing, while still making something that’s just complete looking and right – dope.
You can see my current work as well as many vintage flicks of train cars etc. on my website:
Drop me a line there and say what’s up.
That’s a track of mine playing in the background titled: Mesh Rock. You can download it from iTunes at the following link: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/mesh-rock/id450237350?i=450237369&uo=4
I hope you enjoy this extremely rare bombing footage from the heyday of graffiti.
