This photo by Al Flipside was shot the first time Minor Threat came to Los Angeles in 1982. It originally ran in Flipside no. 47 (1987). The original image was shot outdoors in pitch black night with just a flash. Merrill Ward of SWA is also in this photo.  Note the cigarette in his hand in the lower left hand corner of the photo which merited Ian’s “full face backslide.” – Joe Henderson

Skateboarding is not a hobby. And it is not a sport. Skateboarding is a way of learning how to redefine the world around you. For most people, when they saw a swimming pool, they thought, ‘Let’s take a swim.’ But I thought, ‘Let’s ride it.’ When they saw the curb or a street, they would think about driving on it. I would think about the texture. I slowly developed the ability to look at the world through totally different means.” – Ian MacKaye
