Ged Wells’ Insane Clothing was one of the defining features of the UK skate scene at this time. It always seemed to me that Insane was part of a very long and distinctive strand in British culture — one which resonated strongly with the spirit behind R.a.D.
Ged was also a huge direct influence on the magazine as a contributor, counsellor and critic.
One day I hope to have time to write more about how important this was.
