Here’s the second installment of Chris Emery/Wolftown Skateboards‘ ongoing Black Country video series.
Black Country Vol. 2 picks up on Vol. 1 and features a host of heads from all the surrounding areas hitting up everything from DIY waste ground spots to the mainland European looking Wednesfield plaza, along with some cracking looking indoor carpark spots. This one does exactly what it says on the tin – raw street footage of the Black Country scene filmed and produced by someone on the inside of it. Well worth a look.
If you’re looking for more information – we’ll pass the mic over to Chris himself for a little more background information.
‘The Black Country is a region of the West Midlands in England, and commonly refers to all or part of the four Metropolitan Boroughs of Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton. The 14-mile road between Wolverhampton and Birmingham was described as “one continuous town” in 1785.
Filmed throughout The Black Country and its surrounding areas in Autumn and Winter 2017, this volume includes skating from: Dan Brueton, Ciaran Denison, James Brewer, Christopher Emery, Rajinder Sami, Claire Alleaume, Henry Fox, Sean Baker, Alex Ramsell, Nick Sharratt, Ali Watson, Anthony Ackers and Sam Harrison.”
If you’re thirsty for more West Midlands based skateboarding afterwards then you could do a lot worse than to check out the following:
Rob Whiston’s ‘Hate Zine’ – for more video and analogue photography documenting recent goings on within the West Midlands skateboard scene.
Any or all of the output of the ‘This is Birmingham‘ crew who release video clips filmed in both Brum and the surrounding areas on the regular.
And, if you’re after information on somewhere warm and dry to retreat to during the tail end of the winter – take a peek at our recent ‘Terrain Spotting’ Spot Check feature on Stourbridge’s indoor skatepark ‘Unit 3 Sixty’ for further inspiration.
