It is emblazoned with “THIS IS MY CHURCH. MAXI JAZZ” and a depiction of Fraser’s face, who passed away late last year (December 2022).
A lifelong fan of the club and former Associate Director, it references the lyrics from Faithless’s 1998 hit track ‘God Is a DJ’.
It can be found in the Holmesdale Road Stand of Selhurst Park and was unveiled on Saturday February 11, where a crowd of people were invited to see it before the kickoff against Crystal Palace’s longtime rivals Brighton and Hove Albion.
Steve Parish, the club’s Chairman said: “Maxi was a great man and a wonderful friend, who loved Palace with all his heart.
“I would urge supporters located in the Holmesdale to spend a moment visiting this new mural, which is a fitting tribute to Maxi,” he continued.
On December 24, Faithless announced that Fraser had died via the band’s social media accounts.
In the statement posted, Rollo and Sister Bliss said: “We are heartbroken to say Maxi Jazz died last night. He was a man who changed our lives in so many ways. He gave proper meaning and message to our music.
“He was also a lovely human being with time for everyone and a wisdom that was both profound and accessible. It was an honour and, of course, a true pleasure to work with him,” they continued.
“He was a beautiful lyricist, a DJ, a Buddhist, a magnificent stage presence, car lover, endless talker, beautiful person, moral compass and genius.”
