    Reagan may not have been killed in 81, but luckily his assassination attempt did yield JFA (Jodie Foster’s Army). Young, loud, fast and all skaters, JFA picked up that Skate Rock flag and took off with it. JFA are as legit as they come. Both Brian Brannon and guitarist Don Pendleton worked at THRASHER in the early years when I was first getting into not only skating but also punk, so of course their band was frequently blaring out of stereo’s while sessioning. I cannot think of Skate Rock without thinking of JFA and I cannot think of JFA without thinking of skaters. I had always wanted to do a gnarly skating shirt for the band that melded 2 of my biggest loves. In fact, I had done some rough sketches for the band while I was in high school in 86 but I don’t think I ever sent it to them (although I had become pen pals with Brian). Well here we are 30 years later, and I finally got the gnarly skater shirt together that I always wanted. I can say it’s been worth the wait! -Chris Shary
