This Weekend - Get Hip Get Art Punk Rock Day of the Dead Show!

It's almost here! We are counting down to Friday's Get Hip Get Art Punk Rock Day of the Dead shindig. Check out what Pittsburgh's Pop Filter has to say about it:

We will be showing images that have never been exhibited before! Come see and celebrate our recently departed punk rock icons Lou Reed, Mick Karn (below, of Japan), and many more.

I recently restored all the frames from the single 24-exposure roll of film I shot when I saw Japan at the Starwood in Los Angeles, 1978.

Born Andonis Michaelides to Greek Cypriot parents, in Nicosia in 1958, Mick Karn's family relocated to England when he was 3 years old.  He and David Sylvian, Richard Barbieri and Rob Dean formed the glam-influenced band Japan in 1974.

Karn remained active in music until the end.  In 2010, he was diagnosed with late stage cancer, to which he succumbed in January 2011.
