As we are rapidly approaching the deadline for Art Decades Issue one the content is becoming more and more exciting and varied. For example the terrific Australian writer Michelle Alexander has submitted an epic 5000 word plus piece on the long and fascinating career of Mike Patton. Michelle’s great piece is as informative as it is entertaining we are really excited about it. #mikepatton #faithnomore #mr.bungle
Despite the fact that we were right up front last night I failed to get any real decent shots of Beck. His set was out of sight though with the highlight, for me, being his guitar solo at the end of the gorgeous ‘Waking Light’…a real ‘face melter’.
My favorite shot of Tommy and Paul that I captured last night at The Replacements stunning stand at Forecastle. #thereplacements #paulwesterberg #tommystinson #forecastlefest #forecastlefestival
This guy and his wife brought their son from Minneapolis to Louisville last night to see The Replacements! Captured this shot right as The Mats closed the first part of their crushing set. #forecastlefest #forecastlefestival #thereplacements #paulwesterberg
Just arrived at The Forecastle Fest! #forecastlefest #forecastlefestival
So proud of my friend Steve Langton for submitting an extraordinary piece for Art Decades focused on Siouxsie and the Banshees iconic 1983 stand at The Royal Albert Hall with Robert Smith. Steve will have a regular column in which he will share his memories of the incredible punk shows he saw in the seventies and eighties. #siouxsiesioux #siouxsieandthebanshees #robertsmith #oldschoolpunk
Super jealous of my friends today who are getting to see the legendary Slint at the Forecastle Festival!!! #slint #forecastlefest #forecastlefestival

Morning coffee with three of my favorite things…Ziggy sleeping, sun spots and Mario Bava’s SHOCK. #mariobava
Floored by the interview with former Rolling Stones producer Andrew Loog Oldham that will appear in Issue one of Art Decades. Dude was just inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. I can’t believe we have such a legend for our first issue!
Sorting through the stranger corners of my out of control vinyl collection, I just came across this cool as hell colored lp. Look at this thing!
One of the two covers I shot for Black & Grey’s upcoming Satori Issue. This one features the beautiful and legendary Stoya.
The sun machine is coming down…
Positively obsessed with this LP right now. One of the most powerful and brilliant records to come out in some time. Buy this album!!!
Of course Claudia Jennings makes an appearance in our first issue!
