Glenn Horowitz opened an exhibition of photographer Tom Hearn’s vintage Punk Rock photographs including previously unseen images of Debbie Harry, The Ramones, Lou Reed and John Cale. The event was in collaboration with the 20th anniversary edition of Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk by Legs McNeil and Gillian McCain, which contains a new photo insert with many of Hearn’s photos. McNeil and McCain read passages from their seminal book.
The Source Family were a spiritual, meditation based hippie cult and rock band from the early seventies out of L.A. Run by Father Yod, the long, white haired, bearded former marine and speed addict, who decided to put down the black beauties and booze at age 43, to follow a healthier life of yoga, raw foods and of coarse... marijuana. He was against drugs and alcohol, yet saw pot as a ceremonial herb that aided his deep, spiritual practices. The love of a 19-year-old Parisian girl fueled his ambition of health as he healed her sick body just by changing her diet. They eventually married and were to become the father and mother of their followers.

TODAY Sept 2, from 1-4 pm EST WPKN in Bridgeport, CT will air both episodes of Please Kill Me: Voices from the Archives on Howard Thompson's show PURE.
Legs and Gilian will be LIVE in the studio at 3pm to talk and answer questions.
