The Vault with Jan Welch - Ep.04 - Vicious Tour - Jeff Stockwell, Chris Cheshire & more

The fourth episode of the Vault features Jeff Stockwell, Chris Cheshire, Pancho Barerra, and Sean Santamaria. The footage on this tape is from 2005 and was filmed in and on the way to Palm Springs, California during the first and only Vicious Tour. Notable clips on this tape are Jeff Stockwell rail lines at the abandoned Palm Springs Mall, Sean Santamaria’s roll, grind to transfer, Chris Cheshire backroyaling the ledge at the Palm Springs Museum of Art and Pancho Barerra gapping into the ledge at the same museum. This episode is a bit shorter because it had a lot of b-roll footage in the beginning. This footage will be available in the future in its own episode.

Then and Now - Interview With Chad Hornish (2021) by Jan Welch

Sat, Oct 2, 2021

For the third episode of the Then and Now Interview Series, I chat with Chad Hornish. I first met Chad back in 1997, when we drove to Phoenix, Arizona to introduce the Nimh team at Revolutions Skateshop’s Thursday night skate. I filmed an edit of that trip that featured the Nimh Team and Phoenix locals, including Dustin Latimer and Chad. Shortly after he was added to the Team and we invited him on our California Tour with Montre Livingston, Brian Shima, Jon Elliott, Joey Chase, Adam, and Keith Brierley, and Casey MacFarland.

I have nearly 400 VHS-C, Hi-8, and MiniDV tapes that I am archiving and sharing with the world.

Jan Welch - 'Then and Now' Podcast With Chris Peel

Jan Welch - 'Then and Now' Podcast With Chris Peel

For the first episode of the Then and Now Podcast, I interviewed the legendary rolling artist, Chris Peel. Chris played a huge behind-the-scenes role during the late 90s to mid-2000s in the aggressive inline skating industry. Growing up in Wakefield, in the UK, he started designing t-shirt’s for Puberty Clothing before landing a job with DNA magazine. He then made his way stateside to San Diego, California, in 2000 to work for and design Daily Bread Magazine. In San Diego, he created the initial branding, image, and logos for Ground Control, Rat Tail Distribution, 4x4 Urethane, Vicious Bearings, and Nimh skates.

Chris is a long-time friend who also designed the Big Wheel Blading logo for me in 2017. We haven’t had much contact these last few years, so I thought it would be fun to contact him to catch up and reminisce on our years in San Diego, working at Daily Bread together and teaming up on many projects for Rat Tail, and its brands. - Jan Welch.

Jan Welch - Then and Now (2021)

Jan Welch - Then and Now (2021)

Back in november 2020, Jan Welch launched a fundraiser called “The Tapes Project”. Quoting Jan Welch:

I’ve spent 20-years shooting video and documenting some of the top professional and amateur inline skaters from around the world I now have hundreds of tapes of footage that I am going to digitize and archive online. I plan on posting each tape onto a new YouTube channel for people to watch, along with commentary from myself and from people featured on each tape. These are the original tapes for many classic skate videos and edits I’ve made including Last Call, Urban Decay, Steal This Video, Quatro, No One’s Children, Trash, Sleaze, Drip Drop, and Leading the Blind.

So far I’ve logged about a dozen tapes. I’ve acquired several consumer miniDV cameras so far to try and capture this footage and they have either been dead on arrival, have issues capturing audio, or eat and destroy the tapes. Consumer decks are notorious for dirty heads and have further potential for damaging these tapes. To archive this many tapes of historical skating footage for all to see, I need to purchase a professional MiniDV deck that will safely capture these tapes at the highest quality and a 4 or 5TB USB-C hard drive to store them on. This project is going to take a long time but it is important to preserve this footage. I’m asking for those of you who are interested in seeing all these tapes get captured and posted to help contribute to a GoFundMe to purchase a new MiniDV deck.

What I Need: MiniDV Deck (approx $750.00), 4/5 TB Harddrive ($169), Life Flix Software ($100), Topaz Video Enhance AI ($299.99), Total - $1,300.

Jan Welch - Then and Now (2021)

September 2021: The project is now starting: Jan Welch opened a new Youtube Channel, called “Then and now, an inline skating channel”.

Jan Welch - Then and Now (2021)

The first video for my new inline skating YouTube channel, Then&Now, is now live. This is a short introduction to what the channel will be about. The first episode of the Then+Now Podcast will be released tomorrow. My first guest is Chris Peel, who designed Daily Bread Magazine and did all the original branding for Rat Tail, Ground Control, Vicious, 4x4, Nimh, and Big Wheels Blading. The first episode of the Vault, which my tape archives from the past 25 years of rollerblading, will release a couple of days later. - Jan Welch.

Razors Blitz Tour (2002) by Jan Welch - United Front 2, Bonus Section

Razors Blitz Tour (2002) by Jan Welch - United Front 2, Bonus Section

The 2002 Razors Blitz Tour was one of the craziest tours I’ve ever been on. It was a 32 day tour, where we visited 23 skateparks in 16 states and went to the Airborne contest in Detroit, a Woodward East Competition and IMYTA in Atlanta.

Razors Blitz Tour (2002) by Jan Welch - United Front 2, Bonus Section

We rotated in new skaters every 7-10 days. I was the only person who was on the entire tour to document it. We had a 30 foot RV that was completely destroyed by the end of the tour. Conditions were cramped and miserable inside and the heat was on another level.

We had some amazing times and some low moments. But it was a great bonding experience with many people I’m still friends with 16 years later.

The tour was: Iain Mcleod, Jeff Stockwell, Mac McMeans,Tory Treseder, Jason Howard, Mike Johnson, Dustin Jones, Dustin Halleran, Brian Shima, Micah Yeager, Omar Wysong, Robert Lievanos, Charles Dunkle, Jon Elliott, Wes Driver and Cory Casey. This edit originally appeared as a bonus section on the United Front 2: Trash DVD I made back in 2003. - Jan Welch.
