"A Little, Blippy Scene"

Photo: Julia Gorton
Thurston Moore (of Sonic Youth) and Byron Coley have published a book of photos and text on the late-1970s no wave scene, No Wave: Post-Punk. Underground. New York. 1976-1980. The NY Times reviews it here.

Apart from the music, no wave was basically the beginning of the end of the Lower East Side where "the end" means gentrification.
