"There was a new excitement of music in the air: punk. It was coming from London (Sex Pistols, The Clash, Generation X), NY (Television, Blondie, The Ramones), and now from San Francisco (The Nuns, Avengers, V.X.A.) and Los Angeles (The Germs, The Weirdos, X). I started going to the Mabuhay Gardens (the seminal punk club in San Francisco) regularly to meet with friends, artists, musicians, and performers. Everyone was dressing up and there was a new excitement and energy in the air. I decided I wanted to capture this on film -- I would ask people if I could take their photo and they would locate a setting/background nearby where I would snap a couple of shots. These photos became my records of the social/musical scene of that period." --Jim Jocoy
