My first college roommate repped the D in a major way. He also put me up on ZagNut Candy and The Fader Magazine back in a pre-911 world. The Fader acted like a passport during late-night cram sessions -it took me through a survey course of the East London Bhangra scene, brought me beautiful B&W’s from Jamaican Rastafari camps (a difficult task considering their aversion to photography), and later introducing me to Soca, MIA and the joys of the free .pdf version.

My first roommate would later begin seeing this girl -a painter and design student, who wore her long brown hair in a sexy messy bun, was a former traveler that loved the Grateful Dead but hated Phish, at one point lived 8 to a two-bedroom apt and made a mean veggie pasta dish. Eventually she would start dating my second roommate and after their falling out, would hassle me when I’d hear from her to get the painting that she painted for him back.

46 issues later, The Fader releases their annual icons/photography issue with Jerry Garcia on the cover. All is now right with the world.

To commemorate its release, The Fader produced a limited (read handful) qty of FADER/Jerry Garcia T-Shirts and, “Family Tree” posters that document the influences of The Grateful Dead and the subsequent bands that now carry on their legacy. Obviously this includes Phish.
