Noteworthy Photography

  • Burning Flags Press
    The website of Glen E. Friedman. Renowned for both his work with musicians like Fugazi, Minor Threat, Public Enemy, the Beastie Boys, Slayer (and many, many more) as well as his groundbreaking documentation of the burgeoning skateboard phenomenon in the late `70's, Glen has been privvy to (and has summarily captured on film) some of the coolest stuff ever. He's also an incredibly insightful and nice guy to boot.
  • SoHo Blues - Photography by Allan Tannenbaum
    Allan Tannenbaum is a local photographer who has been everywhere and shot everything, from members of Blondie hanging out at the Mudd Club through the collapsing towers of the World Trade Center on September 11th. You could spend hours on this site, and I have.
  • Robert Otter Photographs
    Amazing vintage photographs of New York City, specifically my own neighborhood, Greenwich Village.
  • oboylephoto
    Just some intensely cool photographs of abandoned places.
  • Rikki Ercoli's Legends of Punk
    Much like Glen E. Friedman (see above), Rikki Ercoli has managed to catch some amazing bands in their manic element.
  • Lost & Found Film
    A fascinating website devoted to undeveloped film found in vintage camers. A curious mixture of interesting and spooky.
  • Pinhole Photography by Veronica Saddler
    NYC landmarks shot through a pinhole lens. Neat-o.
  • Eugene Merinov
    Compelling shots of Punk, Post-Punk and New Wave band performing live in various long-lost venues in a pre-sanitized New York City. Great stuff!
  • Edward Colver

Alex,
Don't forget the "chucks" and Bok Lei Tat (also long gone) on Canal Street. Damn, I almost forgot about the Trader; is it really gone?

Well, I watched my hometown change for the worse, too. I could talk about it but I won't. There's two particular places I used to so love...that are no longer there. OH well, that's why the Pretenders' "My City Was Gone" exists.

Now...oh yes, After Hours. I regret to say I haven't gotten to it yet. But it's still on my list of movies I carry around.
Last night I watched Sting of all people in some movie from 1982 called Brimstone & Treacle. I think he was probably capable of a better performance but the other actor and actresses made it well worth it. Also there is a scene where he puts on necklaces, a diamond earring and one of those silly black lace gloves, all while looking in the mirror and Go-Go's We Got The Beat is playing. Insane.

Also it's 4:27 am and I'm playing the KJ first album reissue bonus tracks. It's all gloom and doom innit? But at least you can dance to it sometimes. And I like that one that had this kindof sample of some like radio announcer or something. That was wild. I'm not sure which one that is. I'll figure it out eventually.

Fantastic pictures, love the obscure and not-so obscure film/tv/music references too, I often wander about Central London with that little list of minature landmarks at the front of my mind. Sometimes I wonder if I could end up like Bill Drummond.

Please post some more when you have the time!
