Our witness from the eye of the storm. The lens-pirate responsible for shooting the actual birthing pains of LA PUNK ROCK! His body of work encompasses not just the music, but the fashion, the art, the lifestyle—ALL THE RIGHT STUFF from the most critical juncture. After the skateboarders brought slam-dancing down from Nor-Cal in the late ‘70s, the first slam-pits began to take shape, were refined, perfected, then developed into varying styles, like ’The HB STRUT’, ‘The SWIVEL’, etc. Always on the spot, when and where the action was, Ed captured history at the feet of, and in the midst of TSOL, Bad Religion, Dead Kennedys, Minor Threat, Black Flag, Social Distortion, Circle Jerks, Fear, Social Distortion, X, Adolescents, Christian Death, and too many more bands to count.If you can ever catch a showing of Ed Colvers’ work, do so. They are the loudest, most action-pact, screaming black and white photos you’ve ever seen.
