Flashback Inventory

Filed under: Atlanta music — Frederick Noble @ 11:31 am Share RSS

In the mid- to late-90’s I started photographing bands around Atlanta using black and white 3200 film with no flash. The results are high contrast, grainy, and look terrible on a computer monitor. But rather than leave them in a box, ignored, I’m dredging them out and scanning them.

Below is an inventory of what I have organized. There is probably more in other boxes and envelopes and heaps on shelves, but I’ll be amazed if I even get through this box. If there’s a specific act you want to see let me know. I’ll remove them from the list as I post them.

This is what has been sorted and easy to find. I have heaps of crap to dig through that may never get sorted.

Vote for what you’d like to see posted!

  1. Good idea, much better to post ‘em. I’m voting for the following. Don’t make me break ‘em down and list #1, #2, etc. It’s an 8 way tie for first.

    $2 Pistols
    Caroline & Ramblers
    Johnny Knox/McGowan

  3. I agree with Greg’s list with Penetrators being my #1 choice. I would add to his list the Drive-By Truckers, Star Room Boys and Grand Moff Tarkin. Thanks for going to this trouble!

  4. Since you have become my personal photographer, I’d love to see Bully and Greasepaint but also Syrup, Rent Boys and Star Room Boys.
