Out of all the photos of 70s New York Punk bands that
photographer Godlis captured, Dead Boys look particularly
cool in his trademark grainy B&W images.
Dead Boys were only active for a few years back then,
however, their sound and look were so unique, and their
stage was so powerful, left huge influence on later punk
Godlis was one of a few people captured their live act
in real time; above photo is another one, from
1977, at CBGB...
...with Stiv Bator lying down on stage and a guy
shooting video camera right in front of stage.
From this photo, someone found a surprising fact,
which was posted on Godlis's instagram:

Kloster brothers, good friends of Godlis who run a
video studio, was watching the video of Dead Boys
live at CBGB in 1977, figured out that the above
photo by Godlis was taken on the same night.
Not only that, they found a ghost in the darkness
behind the stage, a young Godlis himself!
This was shared on Godlis' Instagram, with him
commenting on brothers' work "Move over
Phillip Marlow"; great job indeed!
Their detective work brought us some fun,
quarantine is not bad after all!

his "quarantine digging" of past photos continues.
