MACHINE KGB Interview

Trying to do an interview less serious than usual, we have interviewed Mach, a train writer from Sidney with smart style, but swine attitude…

You had been traveling around Europe… Can you tell us the main differences between european trainwriting and australian one?

For Australians Europe is like some crazy train painting heaven, there are so many different trains and systems so close together. You can be smoking joints and painting in Amsterdam in the morning and be eating crepes and painting in Paris by the evening, it’s crazy! I think that’s why Aussies who make the long flight over there keep coming back or sometimes never return. In Australia we have 5 S-train systems, they are spread out all over the country and half of them are very difficult to paint, so people don’t travel as much as euros.

In terms of style i think all local areas around the world have there own styles and traditions and Australia is no different. Sydney for example is known for a lot of public style lettering and a heavy New York influence.




Ok. Let’s stop doing a worried interview… Worst chase?

Me and a group of mates painted a special private line in the Australian bush. It all went well and we waited for the sun to come to get nice photos and begin the 30 minutes hike back to the car. When we arrived at the car and security was there waiting for us… not good. We jumped in the car and began a 2 hour high speed police chase through icey mountain roads. Our driver channeled the spirit of Peter Brock (australian car racing legend) and we thought we had got away safe. But some new police joined the chase and with fuel low and nothing but a single country road for the foreseeable future we pulled over and gave up. I had never been busted before so i guess that was a exciting way to pop my cherry.

Funniest moment painting?

Very hard question there is always a lot of funny shit happens when u paint, but most time it’s a bit of a “u kinda had to be there” moment. When i was traveling with my homie Pyfe from France we spent one week living in one of the carriages in the main yard of a certain french city. Each night we would pack panel sacks and sneak past security to the other end of the yard and make panels, then return to our carriage, or as Pyfe called it “my paradise”. In the morning we would walk straight through the yard and hanger to the main station with all the french workers yelling stuff at us in french. When i asked Pyfe if this is a problem he would always reply in his thick french accent “it’s no problem the worker are my family” haha he’s a crazy boy.




Most disgusting moment in your life?

I fucked some chick in thailand and she had been dancing in 30 degree heat all night, all i could smell the whole time was here sweaty asscrack wafting in my face :/

Worst thing a girl told you ever?

“No” i get it a lot.

Favorite writer?

To many to choose one. Some guys i love for their style some guys because they are the coolest humans. Australia: Okies, Sofles, Reals, Kures, Eikas, Scram, Kerupt, Break.

International: All of WCA Killers, Pubes, Whel, Risk, Rioga, Vino, the Grib, Wyse, Askew.

Under rated writer?

There are some young guys in Sydney who are so far ahead of where i was at their age. Rosie, Jaezo, Amoe, Verge, Retro.

Favorite model? (Train and Woman)

I here black french chicks go alright but i have not taken one for a spin yet haha.

Europe has to many great train models, but i have to say my Aussie favorites are Brisbane EMU, Sydney’s Tangara and Melbournes Hitachi. I’ve had a lot of memorable moments with all of them.

Rejected model?

Freight trains! I painted one in the states. Theres so many rusty poles and bars and shit on them its like a painting obstacle course.




Best european city and why.

Barcelona for the party
Berlin for the racks
Paris for the scenery and
Milan for the painting

Meat and drink?

I like 100% aussie beef and a ice cold VeeBoi.

Three wishes?

A billion dollars.
I wish i could teleport and had Xray vision for obvious reasons.

If you would do a film… plot would be like…?

It would be a porno called “Return of the Mach”, 1 guy and 10 chicks. I would be the guy, giggity!

Would u like any shout outs?

Big props to all my homeboys from Australia and around the world. All my Kgb Brothers, Eikas, Expel, Erus, Dts Brissy, Wtcs/Tbk, Irok, Heuda, Treos, Iros the boss, Pyfe, Rioga, Siko, Lyra, Rude, Snou, Sport, Grib, Tiws, Whel, Risk and Chill chick. Hope i havent forgotten anyone!

Stay High 149
[IMG]IMG REMOVED[/IMG]




R.I.P STAY HIGH 149, est. 1950 - 2012

Wayne Roberts was born in Emporia, VA in 1950; his family migrated to Harlem seven years later. He grew up at a time when the social unrest of the streets resulted in riots. He watched as Harlem almost burned to the ground in 1964, a year later at the age of fifteen two assassins opened fire on Malcolm X and Harlem wept as it buried it’s native son. Wayne’s journey was far from over as his family made a brief escape to the Grand Concourse in the Bronx.

In 1969 Wayne’s best friend Dave gave him the nickname STAYHIGH since he was smoking an ounce of marijuana a week; before long, everyone on the Grand Concourse knew him by that name. Wayne had taken a job as a messenger on Wall Street where he sold loose joints on his lunch break. During the early 70’s he began to notice names appearing on the insides of the trains and stations, TAKI 183, JOE 182, and PRAY were all inspirations for him. In 1971 he started writing STAYHIGH along the Grand Concourse, he quickly added the street number he lived on. As a messenger he could hit the trains on the way to work and back, as well as during the day when he had to make deliveries.

STAYHIGH’s style evolved rapidly and in 1972 he added the final element to his signature: the “Smoker.” Wayne had been an avid fan of The Saint television show, which was in reruns in New York. He took the Saint stick figure, turned him around, and drew him smoking a joint. The classic STAYHIGH tag had been formed and to this day most writers agree that it was the best tag ever. The fact that he was able to get it everywhere merely enhanced his reputation. He could hit 100 trains during the day while working and hit 200 more at night at a lay-up, sometimes doing signature pieces as well.

In 1973 New York magazine published an 8 – page essay on the subway graffiti movement, they included a photo of a STAYHIGH piece on a train, as well as a portrait and his tag. New Yorkers could finally place the face with the tag – of course, so could the police. He was arrested just a month later while motion tagging in Brooklyn. When he arrived at the precinct house the detective’s had a copy of the magazine on their desk. After the bust, which resulted in a $20 dollar fine, STAYHIGH had to give up his name.

No one loved the sub-culture of writing more then STAYHIGH and he quickly adopted the new name OVERDOSE. He hated the name and only wrote it for a month. One day on the way to work he looked down at a column in the newspaper called Voice of the People, the name immediately resonated with him and by the time he arrived at work he had turned it into a vertical signature that read VOICE OF THE GHETTO. He decided not to tell anybody and proceeded to hit the lay-ups and yards with the new name, tagging it almost exclusively in three color uni-wide magic markers. The secret didn’t last long when other writers noticed that STAYHIGH’s partners, DEADLEG 167 and LSD OM, were tagging with the same markers.

STAYHIGH’s status as in icon in the writing world was cemented by 1974 when The Faith of Graffiti was published. He was prominently featured in the book and in December 2008, when the 35th anniversary edition is published it will feature STAYHIGH on the cover. There was nothing left to do and in 1975 he retired from the writing scene for good.

In 2000, after a 25 year disappearance STAYHIGH emerged at a gallery show and was besieged by admirers. He signed over 400 autographs that night and left through a back door as the line for autographs got longer and longer. He was simply overwhelmed. At the age of 50 STAYHIGH began writing again for a whole new generation, leaving his trademark “Smoker” image everywhere he went, he’s 58 years old and he hasn’t stopped. STAYHIGH, perhaps more then any other writer truly is The Faith of Graffiti.

The HIVE apartments - Melbourne



The facade of this Melbourne house for an architect and a street artist has built-in graffiti.



The precast, four-metre-high concrete letters are load-bearing and the facade has been fitted into the exposed brick shell of an old tailor’s shop.



The angles of the letters determine some of the wall shapes and interior spaces. Gaps between letters create small windows which let light into unexpected places, while sliding panels conceal louvred ports for ventilating the rooms.



The interior is fitted out in a sci-fi style with sharp angles reflecting the arrows seen on the facade.



The apartment is the first in a series of “Hip Hop Buildings” designed by ITN Architects.



Lol at Hip Hop buildings...

I found the issue - it was in one of Sonicc's posts - one of the images was from revok1.com (whatever the fuck that is). I've removed the image (sorry Sonicc) so hopefully that'll fix it.

Yeah I noticed that Taven was back in action. Still has style too!

I love how the Menis next to Taven near Redfern was capped but Menis painted straight over it in quick succession.

I've been itching to have a paint again. I'm moving up to Byron in a couple of months, anyone know if there are any decent walls up there that people can hit?

This is my first wall. Did it a couple months back! [manboobs have since been lost, fortunately]
