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

Very tasteful tip of the hat to Ian Dury in the accompanying photo. Well played, sir!

I didn't watch the video yet, but i'll tell you i remember buying Ramones "It's Alive" when the store was on McDougal just below 8th. And the Buzzcocks "Another Music in A Different Kitchen" also from BB's , that was probably 1978 when i was a junior in High school - Bob was always an asshole, I once brought in a record bag from 99 Records which was south of the park on McDougal where i got the GERMS Lexicon Devil 7" and Dead Kennedy's California Uber Alles 7" (when the were actually released, NOT re-issues) and many other cool records, but Bob threatened to break my record if I brought one of those bags into his store again. I saw him fuck with people too many times to remember... anyone else? Oh yeah, I also just remembered how he'd have the HIGEST prices on rare shit and people would pay, but if you offered him the same record you'd get penny's on his dollar... I can't believe he's still around.
