My name is Gavin, I am 19 and from Tasmania. I am writing to tell you guys how inspiring and just overall sick your mag is. I bought #1 a few months back and never have I read something that is so relatable and fits in with my spirit/ethos (Some inner feeling goodness shit), like the Motorhead and Thin Lizzy references instantly told me, this is my kinda mag. I am writing to ask about your story and how you started One Perecent? I'm really keen to start my own magazine but am unsure on where to began and the usual specifics like where to print and what programs to use.
I hope you guys are well,
Thanks heaps for writing a rag a mile away from the rest,
Thanks for getting in touch. That’s rad that you like the mag - we made exactly the publication that we both would want to walk into a store and find on the shelves ourselves.
Our story is that we met through BMX, grew up hanging out riding bikes, played in bands together and have stayed friends for 30 years.
You should definitely make your own mag. Something to think about though - we found that most people in the bike and car scenes are fuck-wit drongos.
Also, in our experience, trying to find the time to make a magazine, partake in constant masturbation AND enjoy chronic alcoholism can be tough.
Best of luck to you sir.
