Green Apple Books and Sinecure Books are bafflingly proud to celebrate the world to Spot’s photographic narrative. Spot will be celebrating the release of Sounds of Two Eyes Opening on Sunday, December 7th at 4pm in the Annex.
Legendary hardcore producer and engineer Spot (Misfits, Black Flag, Hüsker Dü, Minutemen etc.) is a master photographer. Spanning the late 1960s through the early 1980s, Sounds of Two Eyes Opening offers an amazing portrait of Southern California coastal life: surfing, bikinis, roller skating and skate boarding’s fledgling days are set in contrast to iconic shots of all the key denizens of hardcore punk rock as it is being invented; candid shots of Black Flag, The Germs, Minutemen abut those of everyday punks, fans, cops, clubs and now-shuttered rehearsal spaces.
Sounds of Two Eyes Opening is presented as a hardbound, 272 page book, printed on matte art paper, with 4-color black-and-white printing, a lay flat binding. Copies purchased from Green Apple come with a limited edition silk screened 7″ vinyl record with art by Ed Templeton.
