Bruce Conner book on Mabuhay Gardens

Terry procured from Smith-Andersen fire sale a copy of a Bruce Conner book from Germany on the punk scene in SF in the 1980s. NRW Forum Kultur Und Wirtschaft. I may just post links to some of the bands documented here. Penelope Houston of the Avengers is the only one I had worked with, years later. 1978 Dusseldorf.

Ricky Williams and the Sleepers

Prints from this collection were also shown in Berkeley in summer, 2008, i.e. thirty years old.

edit to add: totally snooty gallery people in LA, Kohn Gallery, someone who answers the phone, says the internet is wrong if it says they have Bruce Conner prints for sale but I could email gallery director Laura something Selzer? if I want more specific information. I said “I am just wondering what the prints are worth, if you sold some before but not currently: $100? A million dollars? A thousand dollars?” I guess this makes me value my book.
