Remy Stratton #4.
"Teenage pregnancy, mothers on crack, gang violence, corrupt politicians and lawsuits all killed vert."
Classic Remy with the seatbelt tailgrab to satisfy the people out there that want some vintage Acme. I really liked Acme when they first started. Although now when I look back at the ads, I don't fully see what I saw in the company. I'm not finding much stuff that is worthy of scanning. I am a fan of Ron Cameron's art and that probably had a lot to do with it.
This was from a Thrasher article looking at the demise of vert skateboarding that covered all the bases: small wheels, insurance, Steve Rocco, the lack of skateparks, etc. The issue also had John Cardiel, Barker Barrett, Jesse Neuhaus and Brian Ferdinand interviews, along with Ice - T and Remy on the cover. It was probably the best issue of Thrasher from 1992. I'm going to try and get some Brian Ferdinand on here sooner or later.
Bryce Kanights took the picture.
