It's a wild and thundery night. Inside a ramshackle old manor house, a beautiful young girl lies asleep in bed. At the window, a figure watches... Continue »

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Aggro Rag Freestyle Mag! Plywood Hoods Zines '84-'89: The Complete Collection contains all 12 issues of the underground BMX freestyle fanzine that rider and indie publisher Mike Daily made from the mid- to late-'80s. Limited to small print runs from the Xerox machine at a local video games arcade in York, PA, Aggro Rag was distributed at shows, AFA/2-Hip contests or by mail. Now is your chance to get them all in one comprehensive volume featuring exclusive new interviews with Kevin Jones (19 total pages) and Dave Mirra; previously unpublished photos of Plywood Hoods and friends; classic interviews with innovative flatland and street riders including Gary Pollak, Craig Grasso, Ceppie Maes, Dizz Hicks, Jason Parkes and Pete Augustin; plenty of "fidge" and more. 43 footnotes! Foreword by Andy Jenkins. Introduction by Lew.

Review:

"Ultimately, Aggro Rag’s best quality is its subtext as a journal of Daily’s progression as a writer and person, with writing and stories becoming more concise, vivid and compelling with each issue. Daily went on to work for two national BMX magazines and write two novels--the fact he’s not embarrassed by something he photocopied at age 15 speaks volumes."--Willamette Week

Review:

"The past, present, and future of BMX is here."--The Bicycle Source

Review:

"Mike Daily's Aggro Rag, documenting the exploits of the Plywood Hoods, was without a doubt, the most sought after BMX zine in the entire world. Not only was Daily an adept writer and editor, he was documenting what was arguably the most progressive group of flatland riders at the time (Kevin Jones, Mark Eaton) as well as exposing new faces such as Dave Mirra and bridging the gap between BMX riding and music."--Brian Tunney, ESPN/X Games

Review:

"It’s a fitting end to a beautiful piece of flatland and BMX history that I will hold dear to myself forever. This book is a must-have if you are into flatland and BMX riding--whether you’re old school, new school, mid school."--Effraim Catlow, Flat Matters Online, U.K.

Review:

"This was a DIY BMX scene at its creative and original best."--Mark Noble, The Albion #13, U.K.

Review:

"Xerox solid gold from almost 30 years ago. If you were a rider in the '80s and read BMX Action, Freestylin', Home Boy, or Go, made, bought, or traded 'zines, you'll dig it. It's a total flashback to that magical era in BMX when food was skarfed, figures of authority were questioned, radsters got bonkers on their scoots, and everyone was drinking Yoo-hoo and Jolt, jammin' and getting kawabonzical and berserk."--Keith Mulligan, Transworld RIDE BMX Magazine
