Keep an eye out for the online release of NW Zine's Pool documentary series, named 'Drainer'. A collection of short stories documenting the use of abandoned spaces in the pursuit of good times.
The project entailed following a vigilante pool cleaning team (Joel Ruggiero & TK) in Perth for 3 weeks, filming their antics. BMX and Skateboarding, in backyard swimming holes, the roots of our culture.
