Week 3: VAJJ - "Honey Pie"

VAJJ creates music that hits every mark between teenage pop and gnarly punk. Don’t let the smooth taste fool you though, this OC-based girl gang holds it down with true grit and style. Each of the three members sing and have been known to swap instruments as duty calls. The origin story for this band was conceived in early in high school.

"I found out about Burger Records when I was a sophomore in high school," says bassist Alexia Del Alcazar. "I remember specifically this guy Brandon Ramone in English class was like, 'you should listen to this band The Garden.' I was like, whoa! What?! Here was this thing called Burger Records. There are cassettes. It was so weird to me. Then The Aquadolls was the second band."

"The Lovely Bad Things was the first for me," says bassist Jackie Proctor. "I was immediately like, OK, this is so fun!"

"We went to a lot of Burger shows," says Jackie. "We were like Burger girls," adds Alexia.

Jackie recalls a particulary wild show: "I look around and the whole crowd is just taking their shirts off. Everybody’s kissing everybody, the band was kissing each other, and girls just flinging their bras. There was toilet paper and confetti. It was literally insane and everybody just holding each other. I was like, this can’t be happening right now. Let’s go to these shows all the time!"

So it would seem that early Burger Records bands have influenced a new group of acts including VAJJ. Guitarist Viva Henny adds, "I feel like a lot of bands got their start from Burger. We were just drawn to it because there were so many good bands."

Burger Records' Sean Bohrman says this about VAJJ: "Our favorite pack of teenage rock 'n' roll wild childs, VAJJ was brought to Burger after they recorded some sweet tunes with The Aquadolls. From there, we got them on some shows and that's when we fell for their goofy, lovable style and got them in the studio with Steve McDonald of Redd Kross to record their debut album, coming soon to Burger Records!"

VAJJ continues to write their way into Burger Records history with the release of "Honey Pie" for Volcom's Cyber Singles Club, which shows just how much influence the Burger crew has on today's youth. "They came from just a couple dudes and just started this whole company," says Viva, "they really started a scene."

RUMBLE FISH
There is snow on the hills of Portugal. The drive to Portugal is long and usually uneventful. But the destination is always worth it. Returning to places you’ve been before can be a hard act to follow. However with the teamsheet assembled we had little doubt we’d be on for a good one. We would rent a house that anywhere outside of Portugal would be out of our budgets and we would live there for the best part of a month as a happy, yet highly dysfunctional family. We would go between wedges in the Algarve, the scary side of surfing in Nazare, 6am finishes in Lisbon and the glorious points of Ericeria. We would call it Rumblefish. Filmed and edited by : Guillem Cruells Starring Alex Bothelo, Gony Zubizaretta, William Aliotti, Joao Moreira, Charly Quivront, Maud Lecar, Bapiste Gaud and Harry Timson.

After a first event in Paris, Volcom celebrated again its new “Abandoned Playground” collection in Marseille last Thursday. Bud Skateshop was the perfect spot for it, located in the North area of the city, right in the middle of a center called “La Friche” that includes a fun concrete skatepark and various activities for multicultural blend of the area. On top of it, the Marseille bowl contest was on the same weekend so it was a no brainer to go on a mission. Bud skateshop miniramp got fixed for the occasion and some prizes got given away to the good tricks, while the DJ played some good tunes and drinks served. Most locals showed up together with some visiting skateboarders and the spirits were high.

“Mexico City to San Miguel de Allende” on Motorcycles Visiting Ancient Structures + Skateboarding | Speak Two The Wind
This bonus episode of Speak Two The Wind finds CJ Collins, Collin Provost, Jackson Pilz, and others wandering through Mexico on motorcycles, embracing the ancient colonial architectures, 2,000-year-old pyramids, and various skate spots as they make their way from Mexico City to San Miguel de Allende. After the U.S. and Europe tours were finished, we all agreed we had one more trip left in our reserve tanks, so we devised a plan to visit San Miguel de Allende, a colonial-era city 170 miles northwest of Mexico City. We took off from Mexico’s capital on motorcycles with a solid crew and ended up discovering a place called Tula, populated with 2,000-year-old pyramids and structures, it was quite a sight to see. Continuing our journey, we finally made it to San Miguel de Allende where we stayed at our friend Luka Barrena’s house who coincidentally has a skate bowl in his backyard. The bowl was perfect and his backyard was full of tents and motorcycles. A local chef even volunteered to cook the local cuisine for us. We shared good laughs and good food with the local crew, skating and sharing stories before it was time to head back to Mexico City. Once we arrived in the capital, our friends Los Viejos, who are a local metal band, played a show for us to give us a proper send off.

Abandoned Playground launch with DayOff Skateshop
On Monday 20th of August, Volcom officially launched the Abandoned Playground collection at DayOff Skateshop in Paris. Located right next to the infamous Place de la République, we set up a pop up store inside the shop for a week and celebrated the collection with a party the next day. Skate team riders Jorge Simoes and Ben Raemers came to shred the city for the occasion with young local Tom Belot, and some best tricks were organized on the plaza using abandoned objects on the Tuesday afternoon. After a good time skateboarding everybody moved to the shop to celebrate with free drinks, Volcom prizes and Joel Aubrée putting on a great tunes selection. Everyone had a blast and we want to thanks everyone who showed up ! Special thanks to Tonton Reddah and Snoop for making all this possible. Photos below by Thibault Lenours.
