Maddy from Zombie Junk, by Kian / by Kian West

Zombie Junk are doing some amazing stuff locally with their screen-printed wears. We did a collab print with them late last year and we heard a rumour that Maddy is doing something super cool for people that have lost all their possessions in recent floods so we had a quick chat about it all...

Hey Maddy, tell us a little bit about yourself?
Maddy: Well, Im 21! Originally from Coffs, I moved to Newy to study. I constantly have a million ideas running through my head and can never seem to get them all out fast enough. Serious animal person... I will stop a conversation just to pet a dog. I don’t like wearing shoes but If I have to ill go my Vans or Docs. I drive a 1971 VW Beetle, play a little bit of bass and will always rummage through peoples trash when its council pick up time. I love my music and spend majority of my time getting super sucked into trashy tv shows. I struggle to eat anything at all without spilling it on myself, my morning coffee order is a half strength latte with 1 sugar (yes I'm weak, I know) and my hair is always made up of 90% dry shampoo. Basically I'm as classy as it comes haha

Why did you call your brand Zombie Junk?
M: I'm not really sure where I came up with it but it popped into my head when I was doing the angsty teen Tumblr thing and it ended up being my URL for ages. I guess It just had a really nice ring to it, because I couldn’t seem to let it go.

You’ve got a new branded tee, what options do people have?
M: Sure do! Our Logo Tee comes in black and white, and theres also a long sleeve version which has just become available! We also currently have our Trump Tee in two different styles for those like me who love to hate him, Our freaking awesome little collab tee with Indisux and a few more in the works which you will see very shortly! Plus, we've got some beanies and hoodies on their way!

And you are doing something cool for first two weeks of sales?
M: Yes! For every Logo Tee purchased in the first 2 weeks we are donating a brand new tee to the youth who fell victim to the recent floods! We are hoping it will boost their confidence a little, so if you want to help out, grab yourself one of our Logo Tees. They are only $25!!

Where can people get one?
M: All product updates can be found through our facebook or our instagram (@zombiejunk) and everything is available through our site - ZOMBIE JUNK! Or if you happen to be taking a trip to Coffs anytime soon, you can find all of our stuff in store at Boomtown which is located in the main street of Sawtell.

What’s next for Zombie Junk?
M: A lot more collabs and some sweet winter gear! The rest you'll have to stay tuned to find out!
