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

Congratulations on your job. But more importantly, I need to know about The Misfits. They are playing in Brooklyn sometime soon and I wonder if you think they are worth the train ride without Danzig? I haven't heard any new or even recent music nor do I have a clue as to who is singing. Their website is woefully out of date and gives no clues as to the state of their music other than that I imagine it is more about nostalgia than anything new or innovative. Opinion?

Hi,
great review on one of my personal faves as well, albeit I do not know how someone can not love Hospital. Great way of writing also. I hope you do not mind that I linked this article with my recent post of the 'Original' Modern Lovers, the Kim Fowley songs.

Dude, I'm glad you didn't go for the book. Jonathan wouldn't be into it. If you know anything about him - he doesn't get personal. You wouldn't even get what restaurant he ate at before a show. I've never known anyone like him. That's why we love him! Let him have his mystery. It's all in his songs anyway. Cheers...

I think I'm Straight is genius stuff. But I'm glad Beserkley sequenced the Modern Lovers album they way they did, without "Straight" or "Government Center" or any of the other odd stuff. It's a near-perfect album as:
Roadrunner
Astral Plane
Old World
Pablo Picasso
She Cracked
Hospital
Someone I Care About
Girl Friend
Modern World
