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

Damn, it must have taken a lot of work to write all that. Well done. I still need to get the reissue myself when I get the money. Now I'm glad the box set passed me by after all. I DO have my ticket to see the Stooges one week from today, though! Wooohooo!!!


Hello Alex, this is Diego from the circus list. I don't post much, but i do read what you guys write there and I'm a regular reader of your blog.
I think this set is more valuable to those who actually can play an instrument than the regular listener. I play drums and I'm one of those geeks who enjoy listening to different versions of songs and discovering the tiniest details and rearrangements, etc. I never get tired of it.
Write on!

Stooges fun

Hey, it's difficult to believe somebody can get tired of listening to Funhouse, but you probably mean it. Can you share with us how much this fetish thing costed?

BTW, Iggy has always been a perfectionist, all old Iggyphiles know this.

I had some Amazon credit and grabbed this set for thirty bucks. I told a buddy that even I didn't need this much FUNHOUSE. He replied "You need it!" After getting it cheap,I sat through the box and thought,"My buddy may have been right." The brutal repetition didn't bother me. I actually enjoyed it! I achieved a beatific state of satisfaction. I was never under the illusion that The Stooges tripped into a room and coughed this shit out. I greatly value being able to put together a half dozen or more alternate versions of the album,which may not be a bad way to approach this monster. For normal folks,the standard edition is the way to go.
