Singletrack Exclusive : – Great Rock’s ‘Vain Vagrant’ launch party and video.
Friday the 25th of July – The Birchcliffe Centre, Hebden Bridge, hosted the first showing of Great Rock ( Ed Oxley’s ) “Vain Vagrant” Film.
Ed’s long been a friend of Singletrack and as most of you should know he’s the beard behind Great Rock, the mountain bike skills and trips company that’s based in Hebden Bridge. On Friday night we got the chance to drink booze, scmooze and watch guests get tattoos, in a former baptist chapel, before settling down for the premiere of his new film.
300 pints of Magic Rock beer were drunk, numerous prizes won, people got tattooed and beards were cut and groomed to perfection.
The latest Great Rock video is the sequel to The Chop where Ed lost his head. He has now come over all Mary Shelley, and needs some kind of shock to bring him back from his untimely death at the hands of the evil Barbers of Accrington.
Join Ed as the “Vain Vagrant” returns from the other side to shred in a valley where the weird is common place, make sure you watch it to the end!…
“We really wanted this to be seen by the all of those that regularly use The Singletrack web site and particularly the forum first.
The film is much indebted to the good folk from the Singletrack Forum, who in many ways helped come up with the name for this project after this thread here http://singletrackworld.com/forum/topic/ed-oxley-the-chop where one of the forum regulars described “The Chop” thus:
“Should have been titled “The Vain Vagrant”. Self obsessed rubbish imo.”
“So a massive thanks andymc06. Without his startling and insightful critique of the previous film we’d have been hard pressed to think of a good name for this project!
“A huge thanks once again to all the sponsors and supporters that make these things happen – Keep your eyes open for something sometime in the Autumn.
