Exploring the Vibrant 1970s Graffiti Scene of Boston Through The Photos of Jacobson Marciano

Boston Street Graffiti 30220520494 O

In Boston’s bustling 1970s music scene, British bands were key. Fans of X-Ray Spex, Billy Idol, Sham 69, and the Buzzcocks spray-painted their names on Boston’s walls.

Other graffiti captured by Meredith Jacobson Marciano has a mysterious backstory. For instance, were the mysterious “Lesbian Turds” a band? The New Dolls, Ramones, and Dead Boys were on the walls, but the Turds were not. Could a raw, defiant punk sound have gone unnoticed? What about Jetts and Real Kids? Were they local bands or forgotten names?
