Still, ‘Jesus Alone’ Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

Nick Cave has collaborated with Melbourne skate company Fast Times on a new skateboard and t-shirt design, featuring artwork by San Francisco’s Chuck Sperry inspired by Heathen Child, a track from Cave’s side project Grinderman (whether or not Cave named his side-project after his mad grinding skills? I guess we’ll never know).

Available in street and cruiser deck styles, the board comes adorned with a banner featuring lyrics from the track: “Hey little Moo Moo, light as a rainbow.” This new drop marks the second collaboration for this particular trio, having first joined forces in 2015 to create a deck inspired by Cave’s song Nature Boy.

Click play below to see Melbourne based videographer Neihana Tonkin’s footage of team riders Jimmy Roche and James Hall skating the new Nick Cave board to the track it’s inspired by.
