Austin Punk Photos 1980-1985



During his early Eighties tenure in Austin, photographer/eroticist Geoff Cordner took some amazing black and white photos of the local punk scene with bands like the Dicks, the Offenders, the Big Boys and the Butthole Surfers. His photos of Black Flag's 1984 show at the Skyline Club are particularly inspired. Since then, he's been hailed by On Our Backs magazine as "the Charles Bukowski of porn" and denounced by Ms. magazine as a "reprehensible, socially parasitic artist," which must mean he's doing something right.
