Monday Photo Blog: Graham Meldrum


May 11th, 2015 by

Graham Meldrum sent us some photos for the Monday Photo Blog. Here are a couple. These were taken at the 13th Note, which I believe I  was at back in the year of 2000, at the recommendation of MRR staffer and roving Canadian Allan MacNaughton. From what I remember the place is a resturant as well as music venue. Glad to see it is still around. If you go, be sure to get the vegan bangers and mash.

Monday Photo Blog: Garett Fisbeck


April 20th, 2015 by

Being from Oklahoma, I’m always a little surprised and stoked to see that punk is still happening there, and seemingly bigger and healthier than when I first got involved in the 1980s, during the days of NOTA, Death Puppy, No Direction, Brown 25, and some band called the Flaming Lips (their first 12″ EP is actually pretty damn good psych-punk). The mere idea that something like the recent Everything Is Not OK fest seemed impossible back then. But seeing these photos and the crowd, things have definitely changed. This all went down at the Conservatory, which is in Bricktown, if I remember correctly. Honored to add these to the  Monday Photo Blog. This was one of those times it was hard to narrow it down to a small few photos. I do plan to run more in the near future. Also, you can see more in the latest issue of MRR. You know, the printed version of the site you’re on.

All here and in your face this spring break, or if you’re not a rich kid (A rich daddy?
