Go-Gos We Got The Beat (Free Preview: first 6 of 16 minutes)
Hear the first 6 minutes of a 16 minute True Tall Tales about when I first heard “We Got the Beat,” soon after the Go-Go’s wrote it.
Go-Go’s Punk or Not? (18 minute) Join to hear some of those stories. See the photos showing how punk they were!
This is far more than about the Go-Go’s. It’s about the difficulties when labeling bands or artists. I share stories of artists who are often considered in one genre, when they might really be in another genre. Plus artists change. So you’ll get a bit of Go-Go’s during punk and a bit of art history. Just as they listened to tons of music, I studied art history (a lifelong habit). I also made lots of art.
This is also about my photos and background. The Encyclopedia of Punk was written ONLY by one man’s point of view. He used my photos and never once mentioned I shot on the West Coast, years prior to him seeing the groups on the East Coast.
Read all the rave reviews. “It’s the punk fan’s holy bible.” Hmm … “Rare and beautiful photographs.” Yes, but not one mention of my name. They felt actually putting photographer’s names next to photos would ruin the layout. Which was full of graphics.
That’s how cultural history is defined by the storyteller.
