In 2011, skateboard company 1031 Skateboards began to collect videos featuring its riders from years past and re-release them through the company’s You Tube channel. However, the re-release of pro rider Kristian Svitak’s part from “Destroy Everything Now” (88 Footwear, 2004) proved to be problematic.
The video contained the song “Smart Patrol/Mr. DNA” by DEVO from their brilliant sophomore album, “Duty Now for the Future” and as a result, the video was removed by the label.
Not to be discouraged, Svitak enlisted the help of friends Kelley Deal of The Breeders and Mike Montgomery of Ampline to record a version of the song while on a trip back home to the MidWest.
The result is the extended video re-edit by Adam Kure released in 2012. The soundtrack, by Kelley Deal featuring Kristian Svitak and Mike Montgomery, is available as a digital single through Phratry Records.
