Devun Walsh, Ryan Tiene, Dustin Craven, Eero Niemala, Benji Ritchie and Iikka Backstrom: the Get Outta Town boys have absolutely hit the nail on the head with this episode. Big backcountry riding from Whistler set to an epic soundtrack. We have to say The Chain by Fleetwood Mac works a treat and we loved this from start to finish.
The Chain is not, however, the first tune of it’s era to be used in an edit this season, and there definitely seems to be a bit of a 70s revival going on at the moment. There’s been some big hitting parts this year and the soundtracks have included: Rock and Roll Suicide – Ziggy Stardust (’73), Up Around the Bend - Creedence Clearwater Revival (’70), Mind Games - John Lennon (’73) and Get It On - T Rex (’71) to name just a few.
We’re definitely not complaining and let’s be honest it’s a lot better than the Skrillex dubshite of late. But this just goes to show, you really can’t beat a classic.
