I had no concept there was a canopy band specialising in Tony Hawk’s Professional Skater soundtracks. I’m pleased sufficient at the moment realizing such a factor exists, however even happier realizing that they’d a present on the weekend blow up as a result of the person himself was there and joined them on stage for a few tracks.
The 900—named after a skating transfer that’s potential in each the sport but in addition very not often in actual life—are a band from the UK who name themselves the nation’s “first and solely Tony Hawk Professional Skater cowl band”. Which suggests they solely play songs from Tony Hawk’s Professional Skater soundtracks.
That’s lots of materials to cowl! And whereas they don’t play the whole spectrum of musical genres obtainable over the sequence—being a band they appear to solely be overlaying rock/steel/punk stuff, and I can’t discover any movies of them taking part in any of the sequence’ rap tracks—what’s there may be nonetheless a improbable sampling of one of the vital necessary and beloved collections of online game music of all time. If the music has guitars in it and was on a THPS soundtrack, whether or not it was Rage Towards the Machine, CKY, Refused or Fu Manchu, they’ll play it.
Anyway, so The 900 had been taking part in a present in Haggerston, London over the weekend, and after belting out a couple of tracks had been joined on-stage by…nicely, by Tony Hawk himself, who as he appears to be more and more doing in his post-pro skating profession is fortunately settling right into a Invoice Murray-esque life-style.
That is the primary footage shared of the occasion, which blew up on Twitter over the weekend:
The band themselves had some extra skilled footage shot, although, and have begun sharing it as nicely:
It’s inconceivable to not love all the pieces about this, from the appears to be like on the faces of the band to the actual fact Hawk completely nails it, as if he’s spent his life dreaming of the prospect to stand up stage and belt out some tunes like this.
If you wish to see extra stuff from the band, they’ve obtained a complete arrange on YouTube, nevertheless it’s solely watchable on YouTube so that you’ll have to move there to test it out.
