Nostalgicesque: Vintage NYC Subculture

BANDE À PART is a documentary record of the brilliant, anarchic spirit of downtown New York in the late 60s through the early 80s, photographed not by some journalist covering the ‘counterculture’, but by the participants themselves. These photographers lived the scene, and they have compiled their incredible shots of Blondie, Suicide, the Velvet Underground, the Ramones, the New York Dolls, the Talking Heads, Lou Reed, Patti Smith, Iggy Pop, and David Bowie, on stage, backstage and just messing around. BANDE À PART is Basquiat and Mapplethorpe, glam rock and No Wave, CBGBs, Max’s Kansas City and the Factory--an extraordinary record of a long-gone time and a place in New York City history.

last and definitely least Kid Sister
though this doesn't actually qualify as a comeback, since it took her 3 years to make this debut,
we'll call it a comeback anyway since she should've came out when this type of music was relevant.

book thug nation:
yes, quite the awesome-ass name for a store that sells books (to thugs i hope).

"i mean, it beats selling books outta your trunk"
