I am very excited to help promote the launch of this Kickstarter campaign as I've known about it his plans for it for a few years now. Readers of Stupefaction will know his name, and if you don't, shame on you. David Godlis, better known by his professional name, Godlis, will be self-publishing a high quality compendium of his timeless photos of the scene in & around CBGB between the years 1976-1979. An intro/forward will be written by Jim Jarmusch, and most likely the photos here on this page will be included. This is a MUST.
If you like punk rock, old (at this point) NYC, music history, and fantastic photography with a definite point-of-view, please consider supporting this project. Watch the trailer below, and be sure to visit the Kickstarter page. And of course, you can always visit the Godlis website!
