Shepard Fairey has designed a silkscreen print of Darryl Jenifer, bassist of legendary hardcore band, Bad Brains. A limited edition of 175 signed copies is now available at the Bad Brains Official Store.
Fairey’s homage to Darryl comes on the heels of Jenifer’s first solo album “In Search of Black Judas”, which was released to critical acclaim a few months back. This is the second print Fairey has designed of the band, who the cult street artist states is “one of [his] favorite punk/hardcore groups of all time”.
This 15×23 silkscreened print based on a photograph by Atiba Jefferson is now available exclusively at the Bad Brains Official Store. 175 of the prints are signed by both Darryl Jenifer and Shepard Fairey and each print also comes with a digital download of an unreleased Darryl Jenifer track. Limited to one per customer.
Bad Brains will be releasing “Lost Riffs and Dubs”, a collection of unreleased live recordings from their classic years, on ROIR later this year.
Darryl Jenifer will be playing with the Bad Brains in two festivals in Europe this June.

“In Search of Black Judas” has also received some great reviews!
Over the past decade or so, Darryl Jenifer has made a name for himself as a producer for reggae-influenced bands like Bedouin Soundclash and Sublime, and the skills he’s acquired at the mixing board stand him in good stead here; everything sounds carefully layered and balanced, but there’s never any hint of slickness or commercialism. Jenifer lets his bass lead the way with dark and richly melodic lines and builds everything else on top of and around them, creating tracks that draw deeply on reggae roots while still sounding utterly fresh and new. Read the rest of the review…
Best known for his pummelling low-end in formative punk quartet Bad Brains, bassist Darryl Jenifer reveals his more obvious other influence on that seminal outfit with solo ventureIn Search of Black Judas: haunting, echo-laden reggae riffs interspersed between ripping hardcore anthems. Read the rest of the review…
The track “Black Judas” from Bad Brains bassist Darryl Jenifer’s debut album (out today!) is today’s eMusic Free Daily Download. Get it at eMusic here.
The bass player for pioneering hardcore band Bad Brains, Daryl Jenifer fuses his old bands gritty, grinding approach with electronic rhythms and disembodied vocal snatches for his first solo outing, In Search of Black Judas. That it pulls from reggae, too, is no surprise: Bad Brains always had a healthy amount of Rasta in their punk, the only difference is that, on Black Judas, that influence is more pronounced. The record is conceptual: the songs bleed together, most of them build from sinewy, searching bass lines, topped with patches of static and sporadic LED blips. Jenifer’s voice is low and mysterious, and in the end, Black Judas feels more like a sonic collage than a proper rock record, each song sliding into the next, burbling like the Dagobah swamp. It’s a strange, fascinating journey – no pop, no style, just strictly roots.
“In Search of Black Judas” is in all good record stores today! It’s on sale over at the web store.
Darryl Jenifer’s debut solo album “In Search of Black Judas” will be in all good record stores on October 26, 2010 but is now on PRE-ORDER SALE!
