inspired me to research some of the great vintage “Wall of Death” acts. These crazed hoodlums from England started with thier fun in the 1920’s after being inspired by the American board track racers of the day. By the 1930’s, the idea had taken off and there were over 20 tracks setting up around the world and entertaining the masses. It got so popular that acts had to differentiate themselves by grabbing bigger and bigger sacks. Some of the more memorable acts include taking a lion around the wall in a sidecart and pulling a bear around on rollerskates… Yes, yes… crazy fuckers.
