Road Rash: worship the skateboard 

New music: Road Rash exude positivity, a love for skateboarding and The Goonies.

There hasn't been a band in the Maritime punk scene since FYM that worships skateboarding as much as Road Rash. Their demo, released earlier this year and sold out of an old pizza box, could and should be the soundtrack to the movie Thrashin'.

Made up of Dartmouth inhabitants Bobby Swagger, C-Wilk, Peter Van Shmansen and ringleader Cody Fresh, Road Rash exude positivity, a serious love for skateboarding and The Goonies. In fact, their demo features unforgettable artwork of a skateboarding Sloth (from the 1985 classic movie).

It's hard to dislike any band that responds to the question, "What's your favourite Goonies scene?" with this: "At the beginning where Chunk looks out the window at the car chase and spills his milkshake on himself and yells, 'AWW, SHIT!' That's a rad part."

Like a Dartmouth version of the Thrashin' LA skate gang The Daggers, Road Rash cite crustaches and EXCO clothing as the bane of their existence.
