7. Mike Arnold – ‘Lloyds’


Like a console savant whose muscle memory and Mountain Dew intake fuse to create an equilibrium capable of mastering a video game down to each pixel, so did erstwhile Skateboard Cafe-goer Mike Arnold sing a poem of knowledge and devotion to Bristol’s Lloyds Amphitheatre, a waterfall of blocks and stairs that functions like a Rubik’s Cube in Mike Arnold’s scabby hands. Lloyds offers comparatively less to work with than some others in a recent spate of one-spot parts, but Mike Arnold puts his imagination to work, screeching and switch kickflip 360ing across steps, clamoring straight up the blocks both regular and switch, banging on trash cans (that wallie ender) and at least once, heaving himself into the drink.
