Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Mike Daily is a founding member of The Plywood Hoods, one of the most influential BMX crews in the history of our little sport. He also made one of the first BMX zines ever: Aggro Rag. Echoing my own feelings about making zines, Daily told Jared Souney in an interview for ESPN BMX in 2010, 'Working with the printed page in mind has always been my way of creating something, from the early ‘zine designs to my cut-and-pasted writing journals. I like to lay things out visually, so the collage approach helps hone poems, lyrics for songs and fiction/non-fiction I’m working on. It’s more of a calling than a career — that kind of gnawing feeling that compels you to make stuff.' Well, Daily’s never stopped making stuff. From his novels and zines to his complete rebuild of his original CW California Freestyle bike, he’s stayed on the make. His latest missive is a new issue of Aggro Rag, the premiere BMX zine’s first appearance since 1989.”--Roy Christopher, roychristopher.com

Review:

"The holy grail of all zines."--Effraim Catlow, U.K., flatmattersonline.com

Review:

"To me, Mike is in essence an artist. He is an author, a poet, an improvisational artist, a spoken word performer, a music maker...a 'zine craftsman. And significantly...a BMXer to the core."--Steve Brothers, BMXSociety.com

Review:

"It’s been 22 years since Mike Daily put out the last issue of Aggro Rag. A lot has changed in BMX since issue #12 was making its way through the postal service; several bottom bracket sizes, pivotal posts (or lack there of), and the internet just to name a few. Fortunately for all of us the new issue picks up where it left off following the core of the sport we all love to do."--The Shadow Conspiracy

Review:

"I open it up and all of a sudden I was transported back to 1985 when I had started riding the very first time. I got the same feeling that I used to get when reading a Freestylin' Mag."--Rad Dad, BMXFreestyler.com

Review:

"[Aggro Rag] was one of the most popular zines at the time and everyone followed this zine as it revealed a lot of what was happening in York with Kevin Jones and Mark Eaton and the rest of the Hoods. Now Mike Daily brings back Aggro Rag with issue #13! This special edition is a must have, bring yourself back in time and get the scoop on what everyone is up to today!"--Ground Control BMX, Canada

Review:

"Around the same time that Freestylin' dominated the BMX scene, across the country, in a small city known as York, Pa., a group of BMX riders was pushing the evolution of flatland riding, video making and do-it-yourself zine making. That group, known as The Plywood Hoods, consisted of Kevin Jones, Mark Eaton, Brett Downs, Jamie McKulik, Mike Daily and a revolving assortment of visitors over the years including Dave Mirra, Leif Valin and Chase Gouin. Jones revolutionized flatland, Eaton created one of the very first rider-produced BMX videos and Daily documented their scene in a creation he called Aggro Rag. Beginning in 1984, Daily produced 12 issues of the publication, and it became perhaps the most well known rider-created publication outside of the actual BMX magazines of the time."--Brian Tunney, ESPN

Review:

"Issue #13 is bringing back a ton of great memories."--Andy Johnson, ElephantGlide.com

Review:

"Underground classic."--Global-Flat.com

Review:

"Mike Daily is back at the helm, and his deep connections in the world of old school flatland and rejuvenated love of Hip-hop are both evident here."--Level Mag, U.K.

Review:

"A great reminder that the BMX ‘zine world hasn't been completely consumed by pixels."--TwiceBMX.com

Review:

"It's a great read."--FlatWebTV

Review:

"Aggro Rag Issue #13 features super cool retro artwork and screen grabs of hilarious moments from various Dorkin' videos, and a retrospective look at some of the big names of the late 80s. My favorite part by far were the interviews. As Mike Daily put it, 'I interviewed 15 of the most innovative flatlanders from the fluorescent era of freestyle.' They were asked questions about tricks they invented, contests they attended, mishaps from the road, and what life was like for a starving amateur bmxer focused on whatever it takes to make riding into something more than just tricks. If you're like me, the top riders in the sport were rock stars! Hearing what these guys were thinking back then, as well as their opinion on current day BMX is beyond interesting. Mike did a great job tailoring his questions for each person and there's no doubt some surprising answers that are worth reading more than once!"--Kip Williamson, A.R.T BMX MAGAZINE #9 SEPT-OCTOBRE 2012, Paris, France

Review:

"Paperback evidence of evolution."--Jimmy Pitts

Description:

Aggro Rag Freestyle Mag! The Hip-Hop Issue Number 13 is a limited edition of 500 copies. Each copy is signed inside by The Plywood Hoods from York, PA + autographed with gold paint pen on the covers by Chad Johnston (Intrikat) from Long Beach, CA. Editor Mike Daily conducted 15 new interviews with BMX freestyle riders Tim Treacy, Marc McKee, Frank Garrido, Aaron Dull, Chad Johnston, Greg Higgins, Chris Day, Joe Gruttola, Jim Johnson, Adam Jung, Derek Schott, Gerry Smith, Dave Nourie, Craig LePage and Gary "Pinky" Pollak. Maurice Meyer of Curb Dogs wrote a feature about Damon Frost (SF's best flatlander/breakdancer now living in Stockholm) + an article about the history and significance of the number 43. Scott Towne wrote a four-page bio about friend Jeff Venekamp, a.k.a. Shinglehead. (Fully 75% of zine content is BMX freestyle. Many images were pulled from never-before-seen AFA contest footage courtesy of "Large Ray" Schlechtweg.)

Hip-Hop content comprises exclusive new interviews with Aesop Rock, Dark Time Sunshine and Tim Holland (SOLE) + insight to the work of Portland rapper Cloudy October. Rose Miller from New Zealand reviewed the new record by Death Grips. Peter Relic contributed his underground classic '96 zine about working with Bob Mack/Grand Royal (includes updated intro about/tribute to MCA, Adam Yauch.) Mark Lewman wrote "Same Shoes" about the pair of Pumas he lent to Yauch for the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage" video directed by Spike Jonze (Spike contributed a photo of Lew to Aggro Rag 13).

Fiction/Poetry/Art by Sam Pink, Pecos B, David Moscovich, Forrest Armstrong, Joshua Johnston, Patrick Bocarde, Brybox, Manuel Mayhem. "Aggro Rag Freestyle Mag!" ink stamps and rider autographs make each copy unique.
