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

I got an email that new things were on the MF MySpace page but I can't understand that site and never found the entry that was supposedly there. It also said new songs were posted, but I couldn't find that either. Maybe I'm too old for MySpace, it hurts my head to look at it. Mark Ashwill's ashes are spinning over a box set I am sure.

I have 1933 and last time you wrote about it, I was inspired to record it into itunes for a listen for the first time in years. It holds up in some parts, not in others.

hey !--- i just bought the new peter missing release and found this article by accident . i had to comment on it ..the new 5 cd 1 dvd is a great documentary of all missing recorded after missing foundation and i never expected peter missing to stay the same forever .
and for me after owning many old records of missing foundation, this new band missing seven hazard and release is an amazing power . i think noone can write anything realistic unless they have the new music.
i read reviews of bands all the time but this is lazy and lame reporting ! from what i know peter missing started music concerts in 1979 and added alot to my generation . much respect .
me and my friends wish peter missing a great success with his messages to the world !
p.s. the dvd is great . everyone - ignore the press and check out http://www.humanityrecords.de

"i read reviews of bands all the time but this is lazy and lame reporting !"

It's neither a review nor "reporting" -- it's just my own personal feelings on the project based on my memories of them. You feel differently? Fine. No need to be nasty. I'm curious to hear the new stuff. I never said I expected Missing to stay the same forever -- that would be incredibly dull -- but you have to admit it seems like he's followed an awfully crooked trajectory. That's not a criticism, but rather simply an observation. I still consider m'self a fan.

As a member of MF from the beginning I know there has never been any money in this project. The only way we made any was selling t shirts and hoodies on tour. I hope this current box set makes Pete a few euros, he puts all his art and music sales back in to making more art.

Cheers, Christopher. Thanks for weighing in!
