The new rock 'n' roll revolution is now!
"Since 2002, Ben Trogdon has been averaging a roll of film a week documenting punk and self-publishing his work alongside interviews in the bi-yearly newsprint zine Nuts! Fanzine.For its first few years, Nuts! was primarily centered around the punk scene in Olympia, Washington. Ben has since moved on to cover the punk scene in Brooklyn (and beyond), where he’s been living and playing music since 2012...
...Last month Ben released the 108-page newsprint zine Rock ‘n’ Roll Forever! This color newsprint zine compiles some of his favorite photos from various punk scenes sewn together by the iconography of visual artists that have positively saturated the scene. This condensed archive, selected from over 10,000 photos of people living in the fringe, allows us to remember who’s stuck around or who no longer attend shows but continue to intersect in punks’ liminal spaces."
