"POWERPLANT CHOPPERS - BORN FREE 5" . . . . SAW THIS SOMEWHERE LAST WEEK, DESERVES MORE AIRTIME SO HERE GOES, WHAT DO WE HAVE . . . . ONE SHIT HOT BIKE BUILDER, ONE SKATER/ARTIST/MUSO/WRITER/NON-CONFORMIST, SOME PARTIALLY NEKKID CHICKS, SEVERAL COOL SCOOTS, COUPLE OF TOUGH CARS . . . . SOME STRANGE SMOKING OBJECTS BEING PASSED AROUND, BULKY'S EYES BECOMING GLAZED, FUCK ALL CONTENT . . . . IT'S CALLED PERFECTION.
A few months ago I was musing and mumbling about the possible whereabouts and what-has-become-of Yaniv Evan from Poweplant, then he turns up at the Mooneyes gig in Yokohama and now he's here in one of the Builder Profiles for BF5, being interviewed by none other than multi media superstar and long time outsider, Steve Olson . . . . I love it, nothing particularly new or adventurous but it's certainly a breath of fresh air as far as the run of the mill builder vids go, a decent slice of pisstaking, a nice dollop of scrumptious, workshop fluff, some cool rides of both two and four wheeled persuasion and not a lot achieved in the end. I figure there musta been some pretty gnarly avgas fumes wafting about at the time because Olson's eyes appear pretty well toast by the end of the shoot . . . . not too much being taken seriously here folks . . . . thank fuck for a bit of levity !!!
