Debbie Harry and Joey Ramone from Punk magazine's "Mutant Monster Beach Party," photographic comic, shot by Chris Stein, New York, 1978. It was the second epic fumetto (a comic-style photo story, a form made popular in the 60s in Europe/Italy and South America) from Punk magazine. It was shot by several photographers, mainly Roberta Bayley and Chris Stein. The story is vaguely Romeo and Juliet about rocker bikers and surfers at war. Joey Ramone and Debbie are the stars, and it features cameo appearances by Andy Warhol, John Cale and Lester Bangs. (The photograph is by Chris Stein from his forthcoming book: 'Chris Stein/Negative: Me, Blondie and the Advent of Punk') Read more: http://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-culture/blondie-guitarist-chris-stein-shares-his-secret-photographs-1970s-and-1980s-180952468/#R8lfFzivOTAKsptF.99
