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

Ghost is a band, Michio Kurihara is the guitarist (well, he's credited with electric guitar on that record, Masaki Batoh, normally Ghost's singer, is credited with acoustic, but presumably you mean Kurihara.)

good luck with the job hunt, dude!

Ahaha -- leave to Mr. Abbey to correct me. Cheers, man. Speaking of -- have you read Julian Cope's new "Japrocksampler"? It's been getting huge reviews. Seems like it'd be right up your alley.

I have a copy in my next FE wholesale order, but I'm not too interested in the rockier end of things in that scene any more. he does supposedly get into some of the roots of the Tokyo musicians I work with, the electronic music of the early sixties, Group Ongaku, Kosugi, Taj Mahal Travellers and all that, so that's why I'm going to pick it up. do you know my wife is from Tokyo?

hope you and your family get healthier soon, a lot of that going around right now. my buddy just got diagnosed with pneumonia and told if he didn't stop smoking cigs for the next few weeks, he might die. now that's not cool.



this comment of yours about Ceremony brought to mind Flying Saucer Attack's cover of Outdoor Miner by Wire... I always thought the same: "how could they improve over something that was already so good?"

anyway... I just found your blog two years after you wrote the Gathering about it... it was nice to find it, nonetheless...
