          Lucien and Steph have been shredding the streets of London together for over a decade now. The Original Skate Rat tag-team, they have always pushed and supported each other whilst periodically putting out the highest quality parts dating all the way back to Ian Passmore's Hello Coco. With differing yet complimentary styles, between them they will always have something for whatever haggard street nugget they come across. It only seemed right that in Slam's first full length production they share a part, the part I always wanted to make.

            On a cold December night in 2011 my mission was to get a clip with Mekka to go into the Slam Video. Determined to give as accurate a snapshot of the scene as possible, the inclusion of such staple figures in London's skate community was a must. I met him down there late and chilled for a few hour, bunning and reminiscing about the golden years of Shell Center (look out for some bloggage on that front soon) until the place was quiet enough and he set about his work. Mekka is not someone you would fuck with on road; tough and experienced in the most shady of situations, he aproaches his skating much like I imagine he does the rest of his life - by not fucking about. He was trying a line ending on a powerful frontside nollie down the bank to flat, a path rarely taken when the infamous 7 set sits right beside it waiting for the lemmings to fall. He landed on every attempt, either buckling under the impact of his epic pop technique or hitting one of the many elevated slabs that litter the roll out. At one point I'm pretty sure he broke or fractured his arm, having already crippled his shoulder and snapped his board. Either way he did not skate after this night for a good month or so after getting a cast on it. But before that he just drank some beer, smoked a joint and ploughed through the pain untill he rode out a few goes later, the results are one of my favourite clips from the video.

                London's Skate Rats in Timlapse form. Short film featuring the timelapses shot during the making of City of Rats, with a few additional clips from the film thrown in for good measure. This was intended for the extras but for some reason or other was never finished in time to make the DVD. What is City of Rats? its the first feature length film from Slam City Skates, Europe's oldest skateshop established in 1986. "At a point in time where a large section of skateboarders consider social networking props to constitute skateboard culture, it is extremely refreshing to see members of the younger generation still out pounding the streets like those who came before them. Don't be one of those bellends who only watches skate videos after they've been cut up into bite-sized sections on some Facebook hero's page: support real skateboard culture with your money, not just your 'liking' finger. City of Rats is more than worth the measly tenner they're asking for it. Goon support should be mandatory." - BEN POWELL, SIDEWALK MAGAZINE Running at 57 minutes, City of Rats has 14 sections and features the entire Slam Team alongside the shop staff, London locals and vargrants.
