Coming through to Edinburgh from Livi i used to frequent Bristo when i first started skating. I would sometimes skive school on a Friday and head through early doors and skate all day. Two things were certain on those days, i'd be hungry as i only had enough money for bus fare and John Anderson would show up at some point or already be there. Armed with a book and a rollie he'd skate, read, then skate for a bit, this would be repeated all day.
This tailslide photo was shot at a Bristo jam around 2001. Must've been getting on as it looks pretty dark.
I can't remember the last time i saw John at Bristo, i think you're more likely to find him here, eating twigs and rubbing sticks together.
Wrap up John, it's getting cold!
