”[‘Zines] were circulated to the riders in brown envelopes and pushed hand-to-hand at contests and jams, ensuring the drip-fed spread of knowledge of local riding scenes that just wasn’t being covered by the glossy established magazines. The ‘zines offered an insight into the dirty nub of freestyle, where the tricks were being developed away from the eyes of the sun-blessed West Coast industry and media epicentre. One such example of this 80’s DIY ethic—and perhaps the finest of them all—was the aptly named Aggro Rag, whose first issue got into the grubby hands of BMXers in 1984.”
