The music of Long Beach based raw power punk band, Spider, is featured on the soundtrack of the latest installment of mini-docu series Powell-Peralta Skateboard Stories Presents spotlighting Bucky Lasek. Providing the sonic landscape to mind blowing visceral images of vert the ramp legend and ten time X Games gold medalist are Spider songs “The Reeperbahn” and “Energy Gone Wrong” from their latest EP "Energy Gone Wrong".
“The Reeperbahn” opens the film with a cryptic, moody and dark composition which then propels into a blistering punk rock anthem. ”Energy Gone Wrong” is synched to film as a sneering insurgent backdrop echoing Lasek's kinetic resilience on the vert ramp. Both of those tracks, plus a cover of Black Flag’s “Depression”, round out the collection of studio recordings found on the bands "Energy Gone Wrong" EP available everywhere digitally and embodied in a limited edition 7” vinyl record offered in clear and white vinyl variants.
Since reforming 5 years ago, Spider has been invited to and playing music festivals around the world, Music Tastes Good Festival (US), It’s Not Dead Festival (US), Punk Rock Bowling (US), Rebellion Festival (UK), The Bash (US), Back To Future Festival (DE), Punk Rock Holiday (Slovenia) plus shows with a variety of legendary punk heavy hitters including Descendents, Pennywise, GBH, Strung Out, CJ Ramone, The Weirdos, TSOL, Fear and The Casualties.
The band is currently in the studio writing and recording their 2021 Devil in the Woods Records debut. Make sure to follow Spider to see what else they have going on. We also added "Energy Gone Wrong" to our Underground Punk playlist on Spotify.
