Full Speed Ahead
Full Speed Ahead's debut 7" EP features one of the great live action skateboarding covers. Born and Bred was released in 1998 on Teamwork Records out of NJ (the band was also from NJ). The cover shot is credited as "Front side air at Gersche's" - 1983. This kid is riding a sweet Zorlac Craig Johnson Voodoo Doll model. This puts this release as an "honorable mention" on the list of Pushead cover art (their 2004 LP Born to Lose features commissioned Pushead artwork). Amidst the Indy stickers you can see homemade Suicidal Tendencies and Agression tags. The inner label features another skeletal skater.
