Stacey Peralta's directing and editing chops date back to the 1980s. His skateboard company Powell-Peralta's legendary Bones Brigade (the dream team of Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Lance Mountain, Mike McGill, Rodney Mullen and Tommy Guerrero) were dominating professional skateboarding, and Stacey lovingly documented the progress of his team with a series of great Bones Brigade videocassette releases such as the Bones Brigade Video Show (1984), Future Primitive (1985) and The Search for Animal Chin (1987) (all Google Video). Each video is a skateboarding historical signpost, featuring the debuts of Caballerials, McTwists and 720s. Don't miss the soundtrack to the Bones Brigade Video Show, which features great 1980s punk rock such as the Youth Brigade and the Faction (Steve Caballero's band).
