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

peter missing

hey thanks for the write up why do you not interview peter missing because you have a warped impression i scared people with my original music and i am a scary person thats not missing foundation we were wiki leaks before the computer and the fbi was the main reason for the meltdown of the band and i will release MISSING SEVEN HAZARD despite the childish remark missing zero hazard once again its another band you know nothing about ! good luck with your blog but stop reporting false information if you can .....

Respectfully, my closing comment (if that's the one you're referring to as the "childish remark") wasn't intended to be taken entirely seriously, but if that doesn't come across accurately, that's invariably due to a failing on my part as the line's author.

Part of the whole impetus of this piece was to *clear up* misconceptions about the Missing Foundation of the 80's/90's by speaking with one of its members. By the same token, you'd have to admit that there was certainly an element of threatening mystique to the band *at that stage* which wasn't entirely accidental, no?

As I mentioned, Peter Missing now concentrates on Missing Seven Hazard, a very different project (to which I provided a link), and I pointed out that it's more concerned with the present and the future, and not the past. But this post wasn't about M7H.
