    Slightly off topic, but Operation Phoenix records has a punk zine archive, which has up to issue 77. The one tdberg, Grimshaw and mcgringostarr are referring to is online as well:


    Which pic is you, Mcgringostarr?

    I had no idea they were strapping down the PA cabinets these days. Things have made progress since my punk sound system work in the 1980s.

    I ran sound for two dozen punk bands this weekend, and got pictures of all of them. It’s gonna take me another week at least to work through ‘em all, and I know I didn’t get anything nearly as good as what’s shown above, but I did get some damn good stuff. If I think of it once I’m done, maybe I’ll come back here and post a link to some of the better shots. (But I doubt it; you know how that goes.)

    What a weird and confusing article. MRR has been publishing for almost 30 years, but all these photos are from the last two or three.

    Why are they saying this is their first photo issue? I bought “If Life Is a Bowl of Cherries, What Am I Doing in the Pit?” in 1986.

    And no mention at all of Murray Bowles?

    Cory, check the photo credit again. I believe that the photo above was taken by Jason Penner, not Lily Chou.

    The wired site credits this photo as:

    Photo: 9 Shocks Terror, by Jason Penner.

    The credits are a little confusing on the “view all” page, but I think that’s the right one.

    my favorite punk photography book is Edward Colver’s “Blight at the End of the Funnel”. All punk photography will be compared to his work ultimately, but nobody can top him. His shots were featured extensively in the film “American Hardcore” and his photo was also used for the over the book. http://edwardcolver.com
