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

Hey, thanks for the shout out. I'm just seeing/reading this. That's a good question—why didn't I use something more time appropriate for the Night Walk trailer. I thought the same when I was looking around for a song to cut with the images, but I just kept coming back to "100%." I had the same quibble as you. In the end, I couldn't shake the song. "100%" was stuck in my head when I was editing the book. I tried to use some earlier SY and was a huge Konk fan too, but "sonically" "100%" just felt right to me for the trailer. It had the right tone and tempo and length and driving beat. And Lee Ranaldo was really kind to help the process along and get the rest of the band behind it.

I hope you can give me a break. I thought I more than made up for it using Live Skull's "Bad Hospital" track off an old Tellus tape for my trailer for Invisible City (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oa1AaRiVmPw). And when I talked to Mark C about it, he said the timing was perfect because he was soon reissuing their first album Bringing Home The Bait and was including "Bad Hospital" as an extra track, as it had never been officially released before. Because of that he was able to lend me a nice new mix of it. http://desirerecords.bigcartel.com/product/live-skull-bringing-home-the-bait-lp-dsr057lp-1st-pressing-ltd-to-300-copies-colored-vinyl

The books should drop any day now, they got held up somewhere in the distribution chain. I have an exhibition up at Howard Greenberg Gallery now through March 14th and there currently are books there galore. I hope you can check it out. I'd like to know what you think of the whole of it, books, show and all.
