Review

"The sense of time flying in Don Pyle’s Trouble in the Camera Club is dizzying. It's more like time sky diving without a parachute. The crash may be only seconds away, but the sensation in the moment is amazing." —Toronto Star (May 14, 2011)

Format: Paperback
If you've read Liz Worth's chronicle of the Toronto '70s punk scene "Treat Me Like Dirt" you need to get Don Pyle's "Trouble in the Camera Club" right now! Don's book is a perfect visual companion to Liz's and I loved that we get to see large, glossy photos of the many characters in the Toronto scene such as Nazi Dog and the Viletones, the Diodes, Teenage Head, The Curse, The Dishes, as well as then-current and future icons such as the Ramones, Blondie and Iggy Pop.

The book is a large soft-cover coffee-table volume of 300 high-quality glossy pages with photos in color and black-and-white all taken by Don as a teenager in the '70s. He includes pics of his many friends and aquaintances and even himself, as we see his transformation from bespectacled nerd in '75 to a broodingly handsome, intense young man in 1979. Vintage ticket stubs, flyers and handmade posters from the era accompany the photos and text.

Thanks Don, for sharing this incredible visual history. For those of us too young to have enjoyed this movement, it's the next best thing.

Five stars!

This pictoral collection brings back memories of youth and discovery. Images of many familiar faces and places brought smiles to my face as I flipped through this great collection. And the greatest enjoyment was to see my friend Mohamed (Eddy Dent) Nagdee in one photo. More from the scene should dig through their archives and publish their Memories of this great period in Toronto's and my growing up.
