Roger Steffens & The Family Acid's Half Century On The Reggae Trod

To ring in Bicycle Day 2018 we are excited to welcome in Roger Steffens & The Family Acid as the family team joins us for their debut RUN featuring four new blotter editions pulled from Steffens' iconic photos. After being drafted for the Vietnam War, Steffens' ingrained nature to document the historic shines through in these photos, always seeming to be at the right place at the right time with his camera. After coming back to the US, Steffens continued to lecture against the war and do everything in his power to show what was going on there. After reading a piece in Rolling Stone describing the emerging reggae scene, Steffens would begin a life long love affair with reggae, going on to write dozens of books about the life and times of Bob Marley, even lecturing? on the subject at the US Library of Congress last year. Working in tandem with Steffens' daughter Kate and the family's latest ongoing project The Family Acid, we're happy to unveil four new blotter editions featuring Ken Kesey, the intimate Folk Fest, an iconic gas station sign snapped on the way to the historic Altamont concert and a serendipitous bus under a rainbow in Marrakech. Read on for this historic look into a small cross section of The Family Acid's archives of nearly 500,000 slide, negative and digital photos below as we dive right in for Bicycle Day 2018. . .

ABOUT THIS ART

"We get out of Vietnam, I think it was the 6th of December, 1969. A few days later The Rolling Stones were going to do a free show in Altamont, so my god, what a way to re-adjust to civilian life. It was something that was as edgy as 26 months at war. So we gassed up on the corner of Ashby and Shattuck at a gas station that had a huge sign that said "Gas Cheaper Than LSD" and I took a picture of it and off we went to Altamont. About six or seven miles short of Altamont the highway started turning into a parking lot. You couldn't get much further. At the last possible moment, there were six of us, we decided to go back. Nobody was up for walking the six or seven miles. Thank god. On the way back we had to go for a while in the emergency lane. All of the sudden there was this giant hole in the emergency lane, about 8 feet deep, wider than our car and if we hadn't stopped just in time we might have been killed and gotten swallowed up into that hole. So it was with that energy that off we sped back to Berkeley."- Roger Steffens
