Photographer and filmmaker Michael Grecco was in the thick of things, documenting the club scene in places like Boston and New York as punk rock morphed into the postpunk and new wave movements that dominated from the late 70s to the early 90s.

From Sex Pistols to Blondie, Talking Heads, Human Sexual Response, Elvis Costello, Joan Jett, The Ramones, and many others, Grecco captured in black and white and color the raw energy, sweat, and antics that characterized the alternative music of the time. In addition to concert photography, he shot album covers and promotional pieces that round out his impressively extensive photo collection.

Grecco also has archival video footage of a few performances that offer a rare window into the era, material that could be useful surrounding the release of his book. The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles has offered Grecco an exhibition of his photographs to coincide with publication.
