Episode 54, Today’s podcast is from 10 different writers. They review what paint they’ve used and their assessment of each brand. It’s a long episode coming in at over 2 hours. Special thanks to Afex, Asic, Biafra, Therd, Eros, Boog, Tre, Pike, Ryoe, and Sug. Boog thought up this idea, so he deserves the credit.
Years ago one of the most typical questions in old graffiti magazine interviews was “what kind of paint to you use?” It’s really played out, but I believe this is a spin in a totally different direction. What paint has worked or not worked for you? What experience do you have with these specialty paints? Which ones are a horror show and which ones are coming in on top? From what I understand this is the first time something like this has been done. With all that said, this was never suppose to be a shamefest on paint companies. There’s no vindictive nature in this episode. Just peoples opinions and experiences with different paint. We understand this is a lot of peoples livelihoods, so the door will always be open for paint companies to send in or record a rebuttal. I really hope the paint companies are transparent with these issues and take this as seriously as we do.
I’ve been watching Sug’s art work for decades. He’s one of those original freight heads from the amazing 90’s. When freight train graffiti was rather new. His experiences are awesome. The knowledge he shares was pretty jaw dropping. I really hope that he releases (through himself, LT, or another avenue) his 90’s interview with classic writers. If you want to hear those get on him or post on the LT IG, so I can forward it to him. Thank you SUG it was great meeting you, and I’m looking forward to part 2 with you in a few months. Also special thanks to Asic for sitting on this one.
The pictures Sug sent to LT are badass, plus the captions were pretty great too, so don’t sleep on looking at the higher res pictures on the website.
I know you’ll enjoy this one so sit back and check it out. This Thursday will be Snafu and Sase from ETC, followed by Terry from Heavy Pedal on Sunday/Monday.
