Noteworthy Links

This site is Marc Miller's autobiographical and historical documentation of Downtown New York art and music from 1969-1989. It is a must read particularly for anyone interested in the New York punk art and music scene in the 1970's. In addition the site has just re-published (in an up-dated internet version) the 200-page catalog documenting the first five years of ABC No Rio, and the larger artistic environment of the times (like Colab, the Real Estate Show and Lower East Side Poetry) that Miller wrote it in 1985 with artist, writer and co-founder of ABC No Rio, Alan Moore.
