Punk Is in the Air, or Thanks For The Mention, James Wolcott

Who says print media is dead? I don't get the chance to toot my own horn often, but James Wolcott mentions Stupefaction in the May 2013 issue of Vanity Fair! Thank you James!

About us, along with Dangerous Minds, Wolcott writes "Web sites such as Stupefaction and Dangerous Minds routinely showcase rare and revelatory archaeological finds from the punk netherworld: rehearsal and concert videos that resemble the recovered dreams of long-defunct tape decks. Watching footage of the original Television—Richard Hell, Tom Verlaine, Richard Lloyd, Billy Ficca—rehearsing in Terry Ork’s loft in 1974 is like paying a flashback visit to punk’s bawling crib."

The article covers the rush of 70's punk nostalgia that is upon us this year with the punk fashion exhibit open at the Met in May, the recent publication of the Richard Hell autobiography, and the upcoming CBGB movie. Friend of the blog (FoB©) Paul Dougherty also gets a namecheck.
