i was thrilled that my dear friend buck shanty, an artist and curator, opened his show 'fuel, punk rock and other toys' in LA for one night-only. it inspired me to write about punk rock, which was and still is an influence on film, fashion and music. buck shanty toured in 1982 as a filmmaker for the infamous documentary 'another state of mind', do yourself a favor and watch this amazing footage. and his show last weekend brought together a retrospective of work created by influential artists who were part of this rebellious era. "We were all young, the world was our toy, and we were fueled by the energy of a unique club scene and movement that has never been recreated." rest of interview here. buck's show was amazing and his friends and beautiful family were all there to support him. photos from: my canon 7d, tumblr, david palmer, jessamyn dodd, monk rock(b&w shot of band he managed, social distortion) and images from buck's show.
