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

Hmm, I also have a recent case of tinnitus in my right ear. You aren't a carrier, are you?


Hmm. I think of Cardiacs as being...I dunno late 80's *maybe* but mostly I think early 90's when I think of them. I'm not all that sure what they sounded like now I can't remember. But post punk? Really? Hmm...maybe I will research them a bit then.

I'm pulling out This Mortal Coil's Blood of all things (dude I never play this, seriously) all because I played Syd Barrett's Madcap Laughs album in the car some weeks back and there's a song called "Late Night" on it and I tried so fackin' hard to remember who the fack covered that and it drove me crazy for awhile! I was like Slowdive? No...Slowdive only did Golden Hair...maybe it was Kim Deal or about the Breeders? No...

See how close I was???ARRGH So now that I finally figured it out it's like I have to listen to the whole album just to pay myself back for all that mental wracking.


Also WTF? They sample Can on this thing!! There's a drumbeat that happens between "Baby Ray Baby" and "Several Times" - now tell me that is not a sample of Can. And how did they get away with it without giving Can credit? Wow. I could find the Can song it's from but I only know it's either Tago Mago or Ege Bamyasi and I wouldn't want to spoil either one of them by being bothered to pinpoint which song it is. That would kindof ruin it.

That's a Can sample? Hmmmm. Must re-listen.
