Farewell Albion

If you recall this announcement and then the long stretch of innactivity that followed, you could probably guess that the Albion was no more. That is officially the case now.

From The Albion crew:
Somethings are not meant to last forever. Thanks for the support whilst we were here, we are sunk, at the bottom, wrecked, broke, in debt, bust. I’d like to say we gave it our all but we did not, not by a long shot, we gave what we were prepared to give and sometimes thats just not enough. There are no survivors. Pour over our remnants in years to come and revisit your memories of what we represented to you, maybe one day you’ll turn again the pages of time and remember us, 17 issues, thats enough, time to die. The Albion is dead. Ride on kids… its a new day tomorrow, live it… “Till the wheels come off”…

Damn shame… but like the statement says, somethings are not meant to last forever. The Albion gave us unique (sometimes controversial) content to sink our teeth into along with a nicely designed layout and standout/collectible covers (which Defgrip had the honor of sharing with the world first online). A big issue with the magazine was actually getting your hands on one, luckily back issues are online for eyeballing. I’ve hoarded my issues and plan to hang on to them for a long time.

Above is the video that accompanied one of my favorite articles from the Albion, which was the “Live Free or Die” feature on Clint Reynolds and crew from issue 9. Watch it then search out the issue.

Thanks for everything.

We’ve written down 100 random questions and assorted topics, all of which are unbeknownst to our victims. We will be asking people to pick 20 random numbers from 1-100 and then supplying them with those questions/topics to answer. Who knows what might come up!?!?!

Up next, is BMX media hustler and shredder Zach Krejmas.
