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'd like to say that I was at the Cat Club more, but I wasn't. However I appreciated that it was there. The one and only time that I had gone was a great moment. I was a +1 with somebody for Iggy Pop's 'Brick By Brick' record release party and Iggy was there for a meet and greet! Very cool. I got to meet him and told him the first time I saw him perform was when he was a guest on the Dinah Shore Show back when The Idiot was released. David Bowie, Hunt and Tony Sales were in the band as well. To that he happily replied 'Yeah..that was alot of fun' and that was about it. Short and sweet but still a good time, I have his autograph somewhere...

Quick note on that Dinah Shore Show: It seemed to be somewhat often that some of these mainstream afternoon talk shows back in the 70s like Dinah, Mike Douglas and Merv would have some weirdo rock band or rock stars as guests. Back then it seemed to be taken alot more seriously because to the audience of any of these shows, these people were major outsiders. Alot of times they looked like they were scaring the show hosts. I loved that! The unlikely pairing of Dinah, David Bowie, Iggy, and Dinah's othe guest Rosemary Clooney(!) all on the couch chatting was just a tad surreal and a very entertaining clash of cultures.
