This iconic photo was taken in late 1979 or early 1980 at the Oki Dog, a fastfood restaurant that became a popular LA punk hangout in the late 1970s. The photo was later licensed to Bad Religion for the "80-85" compilation cover and it can also be seen in American Hardcore: A Tribal History book by Steven Blush.
Edward Colver is ultimately the most seminal photographer in the history of Southern California’s burgeoning hardcore punk scene in the early 1980’s, single-handedly documenting and birthing 20th century punk icons with his photographs, capturing the lifestyle, fashion, art and music shows in Los Angeles. His work was featured extensively on the film and book entitled “American Hardcore” and on more than 500 album covers - some of which are the most recognizable in rock music history.
