Bitches Brew Skateboards

Bitches Brew Skateboards

Remember those Miles Davis Quintet skateboards designed by Ian Johnson? This year, Western Edition pays tribute to the Miles Davis album Bitches Brew with a series of eight four decks. The original artwork for the album cover was created by Mati Klarwein, whose son Balthazar is a passionate skater himself. That little detail led to the commissioning of the artwork, but unfortunately the decks have sold out in no time, despite the high price tag. Maybe you’ll have more luck at your local skate shop.

July 18, 2012 If you don’t mind shady Facebook pages, here is your chance to win the entire set!

July 19, 2012 Turns out I could hunt down the series in a local store. Disappointingly, the series consists of only four decks and not eight as the images suggest. The dark motives are on the upper side of the decks, the bright one on the lower. In the end, I decided against buying as I found the price tag too high.
