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

is that the place where the bands played downstairs? i remember going once to see the stickmen (from philly) and raging slab.


What a waste of sperm GG Allin was.


Hi! I was the day bartender for the GG show. Chris Barron, later from the Spin Doctors was playing acoustic guitar at my bar when the band rolled in. They were delightful and polite and generous tippers! Which was not what I ever expected on a Saturday shift at that fucking dump.


That Perry Farrell biography has an in depth talk of the Lismar show, not sure you ever spoke of it in depth.'s+addiction+lismar+lounge&source=bl&ots=FNhCJTTpaZ&sig=BHwgZXfMB7m-Ncd90ud2AfdsJwo&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CC0Q6AEwAmoVChMI4sDQoKS-yAIVBW4-Ch1iWg9X#v=onepage&q=jane's%20addiction%20lismar%20lounge&f=false

Also, Moby talks about the White Zombie show in one of his blogs. (towards the bottom of the entry)

Russell Floersch

Here's a very lo-fi boom-box recording of "Angel of Death" by Spawnbath at LISMAR LOUNGE on Feb. 24th 1989.

Willy Baer-vocals & lead guitar
Robbie Burke-rhythm guitar
Patrick Nash-bass
Russell Floersch-drums

We played there several times.
Miss places like that.


Thanks, Russell
