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

You may wanna reach out to Mike Mindless (of the Skulls). A couple years ago he was always on the Johnny Thunders forum, but then he went to Facebook. He seems to know a little bit of everything about the NYC Punk scene.


Yup--that's him!

I could have sworn that the Whorelords were on the NY Thrash tape (on ROIR), but the internet says otherwise. It has The Fiends, though, who were also fronted by Mr. Snots.

He was a Jersey punk who ended up in prison, I think.

While the matter seems to be put to bed, I can tell you red bandanna guy is indeed Bobby Snotz...Yes: With a "z"...If you look closely at the left sleeve of his black leather jacket you can see S-N-O-T-Z in red letters...He did do time...The Internet consensus indicates he was beaten to death in 1992...An aspiring rock star buddy of mine, also deceased, ran around with him for a spell...I spent my first night as an adult in NYC with the both of them and they showed me an EPIC good time...As luck would have it I had an annual physical a few days after returning to my home base...My physician gave me quite the lecture when my lab work came back...Those were different times...RTN/XXX/OOO
