Sounds of Two Eyes Opening
Sounds of Two Eyes Opening is Sinecure Books’ fourth release, and follows the acclaimed Houston Rap and Enjoy The Experience titles. A narrative of Southern California chiaroscuro, this book introduces us to the master photographer Spot, known until now as the legendary hardcore punk producer/engineer for the Misfits, Black Flag, Hüsker Dü and Minutemen.
Spanning the late 1960s through the early 1980s, Sounds of Two Eyes Opening offers an amazing portrait of SoCal coastal life: surfing, bikinis, roller skating and skate boarding’s fledgling days are set in contrast to iconic shots of the key denizens of hardcore California punk as it is being invented.
Sounds of Two Eyes Opening is presented as a hardbound, 272 page book, printed on matte art paper, with 4-color black-and-white printing and a lay flat binding. Orders purchased from record stores come with a limited edition silkscreened 7″ vinyl record with art by Ed Templeton.
