Pit Stories: Slam One Down Learns Not To Mosh In Leather

If you're tired of all the election coverage and need something amusing to break up the non-stop political material, we've got a new Pit Story this week, courtesy of J.R. from New York act Slam One Down. He had this story to share of a Hellyeah pit having unexpected consequences for the band:

One night Roach and I went to promote our new demo CD at a Hellyeah concert. Roach left me with the CDs to go and mosh. Funny thing was that it was winter and Roach still had his leather jacket on while he was moshing. He looked like such an idiot with that leather jacket on. Plus you all know how sweaty it gets inside a mosh pit, and he had that leather jacket soaked in sweat.

A few days later we took a roadtrip to another gig that we were playing and there was this awful smell in the car on the way up. Yep it was the jacket! It smelled so bad and I think he threw it out that night.

Slam One Down is out now with new album "Who Really Wants To Live Forever," and you can check out tracks from the release at the band's official website or Facebook profile. Be sure to check back in again next Tuesday as we share more mosh pit stories from metal bands.

For a second I thought this was going to be about pants and the subsequent chaffing... glad it wasn't. Hold the corn oil and baby powder.

And what about faux leather, polyeurethane... does that pick up the drippy-pit, swamp-ass odor of the 300 lb monsters (and those are the females) that 'mosh'?

Someone needs to experiement.

If it will lift the scent of dog piss out of carpet, I'm sure it can tackle human sweat and beer.
