Punk, Post Punk, New Wave: Onstage, Backstage, In Your Face, 1978-1991
Michael Grecco, Jim Sullivan, Fred Schneider
Iconic and never-before-seen images of punk and post-punk’s quintessential bands
Photographer and ﬁlmmaker Michael Grecco was in the thick of things, documenting the club scene in places like Boston and New York as punk rock morphed into the post-punk and new wave movements that dominated from the late ’70s to the early ’90s. From Sex Pistols to Blondie, Talking Heads, Human Sexual Response, Elvis Costello, Joan Jett, The Ramones, and many others, Grecco captured in black and white and color the raw energy, sweat, and antics that characterized the alternative music of the time. In addition to concert photography, he shot album covers and promotional pieces that round out his impressively extensive photo collection. The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles has oﬀered Grecco an exhibition of his photographs to coincide with publication.
