In addition to the records, a “Captain America FOLK” T-shirt, 16-page art book, a “Jeremiah The Frog” pin badge and stickers will be included, commemorating the prodigious indie rock musician and visual artist.
Johnston passed away in September 2019 due to a heart attack at the age of 58. The cult musician, who was diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, released a total of 21 studio albums between 1981 and 2012. Aside from his music, Johnston was also a celebrated visual artist, creating his comic book Space Ducks – An Infinite Comic Book of Musical Greatness and collaborating with Supreme for several collections that featured his artwork.
