Not the End

(Photo: BTB)
Longtime BTB readers may remember a post from 2011, "This is the End." A mash-up of BQE photographs from the 7-train and the Mekons song "Cockermouth." Well since then, the Mekons documentary has been released (Revenge of the Mekons) and Dave Mandl's series of photographs of every dead-end street in Brooklyn has come out via Places journal. Read about it and see many of the images here.  Here are two from that series:

BTW: Mandl hosts an excellent program on WFMU called World of Echo with Dave Mandl.


  1. Ha - this is right up my (dead-end) alley! And I saw the Mekons too many years ago in Newcastle-on-Tyne. I love WFMU.

    1. Yes, this feels like OMFS territory for sure. Jealous that you got to see the Mekons back in the day and on their own turf.
