Skins, Brains & Art


October 13th, 2010 by

All you Skeeno punks and passers-through should check this out — an exhibit of Reno punk record art at a real-life museum curated by real-life punx! We nerds here at MRR appreciate the obsessive streak that led Mac Schopen to attempt to track down every record by a Reno band ever — not just punk bands. His collection, and a collaborative effort with Jeanne Jo (formerly of the Skeeno band, Arabella) led to the idea of creating an exhibit of the record cover art. And here it is! There’s also supposed to be an accompanying book, which we can’t wait to see.

Here’s what the Nevada Museum of Art’s website has to say:

The Wrong Side of Reno: Three Decades of Punk and Hardcore Music in the Biggest Little City is the first exhibition to present a comprehensive anthology of vinyl records that have been pressed in Reno during the city’s long and intimate history with underground music.

Early pioneers of hardcore, the Reno punk band 7 Seconds released their first vinyl 7” record in 1982, establishing Reno as a creative voice in what would quickly become a global subculture. The community they helped create still thrives in Reno today, sequestered in basements, home-recording studios and independent record shops — proof that the spirited anger of Hardcore Punk is as resilient and vibrant as ever.

Over 150 albums will be on display from bands such as Iron Lung, Zoinks, Crushstory, The Atomiks, and This Computer Kills. All of the albums on view in the exhibition are from the private collection of Mac Schopen. A book, edited by Jeanne Jo and Mac Schopen, will accompany the exhibition.

You can catch Mac Schopen at the museum, talking about the exhibit on Friday October 22, 2010 / 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm. Read an article about the curators in the Reno News & Review here.
