FASTPLANTS: “Grosso” b/w “Super Stoked”: 7”

Skateboarding and punk rock are the reason that I am even here today and that is in no small part to the style, antics, and philosophy of legendary pro skater and later all-around ambassador for the culture Jeff Grosso. We lost the Grossman in March of this year, and the skating world will take a long time to recover. This tribute to Mothra comes courtesy of Illinois skate rock rippers Fastplants. Swaggering punk rock’n’roll with the necessary edge and rasp. This is a perfect eulogy to a legend. As an added tribute, all proceeds from this single are going to skate-related charities. Now, as Jeff would say at the end of every episode of Loveletters to Skateboarding, put this down and go skate. The world is out there. –Ty Stranglehold (Not Like You, notlikeyourecords.com)
