Being almost halfway through X AMOUNT OF NICENESS, one thing is for sure: No matter how much work and little money this anniversary project means — it has already been worth every minute we have put into it because of all the love that we have gotten and all the friends that we have reconnected with along the way so far.
One friend that we had partnered up with twice for earlier SEEN releases, is the man who has been 'doing the Lord's work since 1999': Jamaican Photographer and videographer Peter Dean Rickards.
We first linked up with PD in Kingston 2006, met him again when he exhibited some of his work in Switzerland one year later, and did road with the man when he joined our EVEREST SOUNDSYSTEM for a tour around Eastern Germany.
It was during that tour when we harassed a couple of editors in chief of German magazines we rated to publish Peter's work. The hustling paid off — Marok finally dedicated some spreads and a poster in renowned LODOWN magazine to shots of model Terri-Lois Davis and Peter's Doberman Wally.
For round 4 of X AMOUNT OF NICENESS, GABE has chosen his favorite picture out of that series and we will put it on a vintage tri-blend black unisex T-shirt if we can collect at least 25 pre-orders.
Peter, 'The Germans' salute you and THE AFFLICTED YARD!
Fits slimmer than the previous T-Shirt. Unisex size. Women may prefer to order one size down.
