Marc Mckee – The Nine Club with Chris Roberts

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018



The Nine Club is back for another round of quality skateboard spiel, this time with one of skateboarding’s most prolific artists, Marc McKee.


McKee’s lengthy career took off with the same trajectory as World Industries after he was pulled into Steve Rocco’s camp in the 1990s. Over the following years McKee produced some of what are now considered the most iconic skateboard graphics of all time including Natas Kaupas’ 101 ‘Satan’ and ‘Boom’ boards, the ‘Fucked Up Blind Kids’ series and the renowned World Industries ‘Wet Willy’ and ‘Flame Boy’ mascots.


Of course, McKee’s quiver of controversial artwork is discussed in the latest installment of The Nine Club alongside growing up in Marin County, studying art at UCLA, cease and desist letters and much more.

Over 20 Years ago the infamous Big Brother Magazine started the search for Goofy Boy. There were rumours that they found out who he was but we never believed that. This week in Manchester we heard more rumours of sightings and now we have the proof after he came in the store and purchased one of the all new Black Sheep 0161 decks. Check goofy boy Stannerz and the new decks below.

101 Reissue Skateboards

Thursday, April 7th, 2016





Something extremely exciting is just around the corner for all you skateboard enthusiasts. Maybe more so for the older generation although I’m sure it will appeal to all generations as Dwindle Distribution are re-releasing some of the old but yet powerful 101 skateboard graphics. 101 had a short life span quite a few years back and were well known for their gnarly graphics. Well saying gnarly I personally thought they were amazing, although probably not for the religious or softies out there. The original graphics were produced by artist Marc McKeen and now thanks to Dwindle you guys will be able to yet again (almost 30 years later) take home a choice between two boards that are featured on the left of the image below.





However, the boards that are featured on the right of the image were created by Sean Cliver as a tribute from Cliche Skateboards to 101 skateboards which is fantastic. As you can tell they are almost a newly updated version taken from the original designs. I am very happy that Cliche have taken up the responsibility to endure this task as both brands are shit hot and the outcome is as good as they get! They are a number of us at The Black Sheep Store who are huge fans of 101 and the graphics they produced so this is excellent news. If you ever visited our Church St store you may have seen the artwork by Marc McKeen on the shop walls. If you didn’t then there is an edition of the Gabriel Rodriguez deck that is set up as a cruiser at our current store on Dale St. You may have witnessed the gaffer, who is the pride owner of the cruiser, using it to cruise over to the sausage and mash stall at Picadilly Gardens on a Thursday/Friday. Here it is featured below, now that’s a piece of skateboarding history right there, especially as there is a wheel missing.

Not only can we expect to see the decks go on sale but there is also a small amount of clothing available too. You do not want to miss out on this drop as it’s going to be big and we are expecting the product to fly off the shelves. I’ve already got my eyes Natas Devil deck. Have a look at all the expected clobber below then keep your eyes peeled as NEXT WEEK sees one of the best drops skateboarding has seen for a long time.
