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

Hell yes!

I saw The Cramps in 2004 and Lux had some sort of metal teeth grille thing (from losing or bashing out all his teeth?) of the kind you see hip hop singers sporting. he had a bottle of wine on stage and seemed beyond fucked up.

But -- is there a more perfect LP, start to finish, than Bad Music for Bad People? No Killing Joke answers! :)

Ian MacKaye of Minor Threat/Fugazi fame has always said the 1st punk show he went to was The Crams in the ate 70s. They are one of the originally first wave bands. RIP Lux!!!

I was at the Peppermint Lounge (5th Ave.) the night they recorded Smell Of Female back in 1983. It was spring break and as usual, I was in NYC and not in Florida with my classmates.
They played the identical set twice for the benefit of the recording. A very good memory.
Lux was in full force and funny as hell. Hard to imagine a music venue on 5th avenue today...

Damn.

The Cramps never got enough credit.
