By the mid-80s Spot had pretty much left the LA punk fold to embark on a rather peripatetic career, making his own music and producing records, largely in Austin, Texas. Recently he revamped his website and added a photo gallery—one I hope will grow in the near future—that captures some incredible moments from his LA days. It's kind of a drag that his copyright watermark is so huge and that his captions are superimposed on the images, not below or above them, but his shots of Black Flag, the Adolescents, Darby Crash, Henry Kaiser and Diamanda Galas, and the Mentors, among others, are great anyway. Here's hoping they end up published in a fat, glossy coffee-table book sometime soon.
