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

Do they even keep regular hours these days? It seems every time I go down that block they're closed.

The store owner owns the building too. He lives in one of the upstairs apartments, rents out the other ones, and rents out the bar too. No fear of being pushed out by a sudden rent increase for him. Good deal.

You nailed the vibe of that store. Found a lot of great promo CDs there in the '90s for only 88 cents! 88 cents!

I worked at Sounds in 1984 and '85. It was just vinyl back then, and for a music junkie, working there was heaven. I spent my days in the back slapping those pink and black price stickers on a never ending pile of LPs and 12-inch singles. Sounds was the place to be. You'd meet before a date, go to a concert, then come back to Sounds to hang out. That street has changed so much since I worked there. At one time, there was a Sounds video outlet around the corner too. Great memories.
