    I always find the Punk Era photos interesting (sometimes edgy or goofy), especially since that period still involved film: math calculations in exposure, and a ‘blind raw artistic eye’(no digital preview). Anyway, they might want to post them online for those of us on the east coast who have no hopes of flying west? Please.

    Biafra is nowhere near a punk rock as these guys: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgIwVQRzbaQ

    If you like Punk era art check out “Fucked Up + Photocopied: instant art of the punk rock movement”

    http://www.amazon.com/Fucked-Up-Photocopied-instant-movement/dp/1584230002

    Art, posters, flyers etc.

    Full disclosure: I helped with some of the layout/scanning but it’s still a cool book. I had it on my resume for a while but it set off alarm bells with more conservative uptight potential employers.

    That may be the cleanest bathroom stall I’ve ever seen at a club.

    No such thing as punk rock necessarily. Only Do-It-Yourself.

    be sure and check out edward colver’s book “Blight at the End of the Funnel”, its probably the definitely photography book for that time period. http://edwardcolver.com

    I was just thinking the other day that everyone still knows what Jello is, but who the hell remembers Biafra? What was once a pretty edgy name has become merely odd.

    The photo is fugly, IMHO.

    Jello Biafra grew up to eventually rip of his bandmates, with-holding their royalties. So sad.
