Julia Lau: In the Wildflowers and Weeds

Posted:5/29/2006 3:02:00 PM by Joel Edelman
Listening to this album crashed my broswer, but why should you care? Julia Lau does an excellent Paula Cole impression on In the Wildflowers and Weeds, but what does it all mean?

Well, there's plenty of low- and midtempo tunes on the album, and some of them run together a bit, but her voice is so even-keeled that it's not a problem. Read the full review >>>

Jolenes: Get It to Go

Latest news from punknews.org

Interviews: Edward Colver

If you don’t know who Edward Colver is, chances are you’ve seen his pictures of the LA hardcore scene, some of the iconic punk album covers that he took the pictures for, or maybe you even saw him in the documentary American Hardcore.

Edward Colver is a self-taught photographer who documented punk rock history. Between 1978-1984 he went to shows five nights a week to take pictures of the LA hardcore scene. What he documented is absolutely fascinating and is an essential part of punk rock and even American music history.

But don’t take my word for it. Here’s what Jello Biafra said about his photography in Edward Colver’s book Blight at the End of the Funnel: “Anyone even slightly interested in LA’s underground has seen it through an Edward Colver photo. Edward shined a light on the underlying darkness in a way that would make Weegee proud. The menace, the alienated kids, they’re on again off again camaraderie, and the fright behind macho eyes. The threads of disturbance in Edward’s work stitches together live fast die young no hope suburbia with hardcore homeless of dying downtown Los Angeles; before their ranks mushroomed as Reagan-Clinton America abandoned its misfits and disadvantaged. Edward brings out the Fellini in almost anything that steps into his lens.”

Punknews staffer Ricky Frankel met Edward at his gallery showing in Los Angeles, which you can read a review of here, and interviewed him about a week after first meeting him.

His exhibit ran from September 20, 2014 to November 21, 2014 in downtown Los Angeles. There’s more information about it here. And you can check out some of Edward Colver’s work here, or you can buy his awesome book Blight at the End of the Funnel.
