Michael Grecco

Photographer and filmmaker Michael Grecco was in the thick of things, documenting the club scene in places like Boston and New York as punk rock morphed into the post-punk and new wave movements that domincated from the late 70's to the early 90's. From the Cramps to Dead Kennedys, Talking Heads, Human Sexual Response, Elvis Costello, Joan Jett, the Ramones, and many others, Grecco captured in black-and-white and color the raw energy, sweat, and antics that characterized the alternative music of the time. In addition to concert photography, he shot album covers and promotional pieces that round out his impressively extensive photo collection. Presented here for the first time are images of the clubs and bands as they evolve into the icons that they have become today.
