MARV BIKE CHECK Words: Rhys Coren | Photos: Daniel Benson

When I first met Marv back in 2003, I had heard about some drum and bass loving bad-ass who would send himself down the scariest rails and ledges whilst also still retaining the ability to superman seat grab barspin. I felt I would have to show off instantly to earn his respect, and decided to whisk the OG Hate House Homies off to a hell hole discotheque in Sheffield with my recently acquired student loan. After losing my shoes in an excellently deployed dance floor based Homer Simpson floor spin, I was wrestled up and out by a bouncer. Suitably impressed, Marv launched into an attack on the bouncer and got thrown around like a cowboy on a bucking bronco. From that day on I have all but failed to live up to that moment and slowly disappointed him. However, he’s the reason I still ride a bike and have a pair of Scerbos on. I spent some time to chat to him in the wake of his signature frame release.
