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

TONS of good stuff hittin' the dumps these days.....sad.
Always looked at it as an erasure of particular histories; but with Utube, Internet Archive, etc., it's still "available". Naturally, it's NOT the same experience: AND just one more example of how newer generations "Don't even know WHAT they don't know". If you've never had the experience, how do you know when it's gone?

And, OF COURSE, with the Very-White House Asshat Personality Convention over the last couple of days, it's not even MENTIONED that one wanted to "Hang The (Previous) Prez", and they are ALL VERY PROUD of their ignorance, hatred and skin color. Who needs a disc, when "history" is on your phone/tablet/laptop/pc/VR/Snapchoke/BrainChip devices? (Won't even get into what happens when the power goes out and/or digital denigration.)
History is anything you can get away with......who needs a physical representation.

On a lighter note, here's a weekend of streaming various jam bands.....NOT Coakilla. Sched here with link to Utube:

David George

Seeing this makes me very sad. I remember a woman who worked for me in 90s said that she had never even seen (let alone owned) an LP. (This was before the resurgence of vinyl.)

The fact that anyone could so unceremoniously just dump this collection bothers me most.
