Stoked on this for all kinds of reasons but not least as it sees Black Sheep family member Jiri Bulin take the curtains. 'Chrysalis' is the suitably psychedelic latest release from Mark Kendrick's ethically-minded clothing brand Piilgrim. For those of you who don't recognise Mark's name - he's been a face on the UK skate scene for many years, as both a ripper in his own right and the man behind the camera. Piilgrim's mission statement is to create clothing using ethical processes and to attempt to reduce waste involved to as close to zero as possible. Highly commendable stuff indeed. For a more in-depth insight into Piilgrim and Mark Kendrick's back catalogue of video produce to date - hit the link earlier in this sentence and read the interview that Jenkem Mag did to coincide with their online premiere of Chrysalis back in the darker depth of the Covid-19 lock down era. Anyhow, onto the meat of this particular sandwich, (vegan meat substitute that is obviously). Chrysalis serves up a veritable smorgasbord of North West related rippers including Black Sheep family member Jiri Bulin, plus the likes of Keanu Robson, Zach Riley, Ricky Davidson, Jeremy Jones, UK legend Franklin Stephens plus recent US additions Corey Duffel and Pat Burke. The whole thing is absolutely banging from start to finish and all involved deserve hearty back slaps. If you missed the online premiere - now's the time to wise your eyes up. Go peep. In related Jiri Bulin news, our very own Czech Manc, his lovely family and an assortment of local heroes have also been hard at work during lock down creating DIY gold in otherwise unused space. If you're keen to get involved with that project, either by donating funds, materials or your labour then go check out the Instagram account @beesidediy and/or sling them some funds through their Go Fund Me here. Jiri is sponsored by Black Sheep, Toy Machine, Pig Wheels, Etnies, Theeve trucks and Piilgrim clothing.
