We’re hosting a Joe Tiseo Memorial Jam, 1PM Saturday, September 3rd at Bloomfield Skatepark. Come out and show love for an original Animal rider and one of the greatest innovators of our sport.
Props just uploaded the New Jersey Scene Report from Issue 37, which was released in the summer of 2000, and was edited by Stew Johnson (in fact, I believe this was the first section he ever did for Props). This was not long after Don’t Quit Your Day Job came out, and right around the time Animal first started (you can see Ralph and Joe Tiseo wearing the first shirt designs in there at the infamous Intense Energy bike shop that was located in Nutley, whose shop work bench and extra phone line also doubled as Animal’s first “office”). Watching Tiseo ride in this is yet another reminder of how much he destroyed everything.
