I am at The Honor Fraser Gallery on La Cienega.
My old friend Toby Mott is hanging his show Loud Flash: British Punk on Paper.
While the Sex Pistols and the Clash wreaked havoc on Britain’s pop scene, their disciples were busy with glue and scissors, channelling punk’s energy and DIY spirit into hundreds of posters, fanzines and sleeve art.
Toby’s exhibition brings back these lost classics of the revolution.
Later on in the day Punk Archivist Bryan Ray Turcotte joined Toby at the gallery. Bryan wrote the best-selling Fucked Up and Photo Copied.
