Editorial Reviews

This is an amazing spoken word Audio Documentary. Last of the Bowery Scab Merchants is an unforgettable audio tour of a vanished corner of New York. Legendary tattoo artist Walter Moskowitz (1937-2007) brings to life the rough-and-tumble Lower East Side and the fascinating role that tattoos played in post-WWII euphoria, Cold War anxiety and the rise of counter-culture. Moskowitz reveals an often-overlooked world, both before and after tattooing was banned in New York City, tells unforgettable tales of his clientele and relates to the listener his personal struggle to convince local health departments that tattooing could be a safe, hygienic profession. The project was recorded in the last year of Walter’s life but now his voice lives on. This 2 CD set is presented in a radio style format but without any censors. There are also some guest commentators like tattoo author Michael McCabe and Tattoo Historian Chuck Eldridge among several other contributors. The disc set also includes a 24 page color booklet with articles and pictures. If you like good characters, biography, history, great stories and you are not intimidated by a little explicit language, then this set is a great listen for you (be it on the Lazy Boy, on a commute or on a road trip).
