What is up, vintage scooter family. Love from Detroit

I made a couple videos of a vintage lambretta scooter shopping trip we took with John Bunkley from Gangster fun (influential 80's Detroit Ska Band) and Jason Navarro of The Suicide Machines (90's/2000s Ska-punk). I hope you enjoy it - Mike has quite a scooter collection!

part 1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wAhmwNjd6A
part 2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMR0FuGk-9Q

Those videos feature music i made

In 2020 i produced a couple albums, one of them - The Tellways "Out To The Cosmos" is available on vinyl https://thetellways.bandcamp.com/ also at https://www.jumpuprecords.com/tellways/ it features a lot of vintage organs and amps i restored.

I also produced John Bunkley's forthcoming EP, available on vinyl in July 2021 from his bandcamp https://johnbunkley.bandcamp.com/


Thanks for your support,

-Rover Eric

yeah - Mike is a compulsive collector with a keen eye, keeps good history, and has a really strong emotional connection to his stuff. I am the same way, but not as intensely. Friends who know him were surprised that he sold anything!

thanks Jess, Birdsnest, all - nice to say virtual 'hi'

I'm glad you enjoyed it. It was just made with my iphone video into final cut pro, and i am a real amateur, so it has a lo-fi but authentic vibe i think.

I didn't work much, professional career-wise in 2020, so i had time to start learning Final Cut, work on lots of music production, instrument restoration, etc.

Glad to see things are still active here, with some of the same OG's.
