‘The Search for Animal Chin’ Party @ Wonders of Nature

For the first time ever, the world’s most popular Skateboarding Movie is being captured on VINYL. Powell & Peralta’s, directed and produced by Stacy Peralta, ‘The Search For Animal Chin’ is the most popular skateboard movie of all time. When it came out in 1987 it was revolutionary as it changed the way that people looked at skateboarding. This movie instantly turned these professional skateboarders into household names thus making them just as popular as well known Rock Stars. The movie features Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Mike McGill, Lance Mountain, and Tommy Guerrero, among many other skaters from the Powell & Peralta skateboard company. The Soundtrack became a massive success as people all over the world repeated skits like ‘He’s Got His Own Milk Cartoon’, that Tommy Guerrero made up in the movie. This movie is not just about skating and cool music, but about a tight group of teenage friends exploring the world doing something they truly love together, skateboarding. Out April 21, 2018 in all Record Stores for Record Store Day, this special release is being released on 2 x Golden Yellow Marble vinyl, with a gatefold sleeve. The inside of the sleeve features rarely seen photos from the professional skaters during that era. Along with an exclusive fold out poster of the legendary Animal Chin himself. We also threw in a download of not just the entire soundtrack but of the MOVIE as well. So if you never got the chance to own the movie, here is your chance to get the soundtrack on vinyl plus the movie all in one. Plus you’ll have an amazing collectible package for your collection.
