""Wall of Death?" I hear you say. "Meh!" But this is no health-and-safety logged, Ofsted-approved circus act. This is something really special. This is the Indian Wall of Death. And man alive, look at the way this video is put "
Wall of Death
There’s a book from Gary on the way in which he documents a year in the life of the show – boards, bikes and all – and we look forward to that. Benedict Campbell‘s film (below) brings out, meanwhile, the all-encompassing lifestyle that is the creation of such a spectacle.
What we like about the whole idea of the Wall of Death is the refreshingly committed attitude of a band of men and women who dedicate their lives to riding very old bikes at ridiculous angles for the public’s wonder and delectation.
It’s a little slice of folk heroism from the margins. Enjoy.
