One of my first art books was Steve Gullick’s pop book number one. Especially his concert photos display some kind of immediacy that got me hooked every since.
This short film and interview was taken at the tail end of February 2013, just before Steve’s ‘Punk As Fuck’ exhibition opened in London. Showcasing work taken between 1990-1993, this documents some of the preparation work as well as some of the h istory behind the images. – vimeo.com/visionincisionfilm

Sound City Studios is a two-building complex in Van Nuys, Los Angeles, California, which houses sound stages. It was most notable for being the recording studio for albums such as Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours and Nirvana’s Nevermind. The studio is operated since 1970 by the Skeeter family, with the first album to use the facilities being Neil Young’s After the Gold Rush. Until the closure of the recording studios on May 2011, the Sound City was used by artists such as Tom Petty, REO Speedwagon, Rage Against the Machine, Johnny Cash, Metallica, and the last band to record there, Everclear. –Wiki
