V. Vale "The Dils" (1977)


V. Vale - The Dils (1977)

An extremely historical piece, this shot is known as the first punk rock photo ever taken in San Francisco, on January 17, 1977. Sadly the height of which Jeffrey Scott (vocalist of The Dils) is pogoing is not justified - the mic stand itself is a good full foot off the ground!

Original Photo Digitally Printed on Photo Card
Print Dimensions: 11" x 14"
Framed and signed by the Artist with a unique narrated description at bottom of print
