In 1963, photographer Danny Lyon joined a fearsome biker gang called the Chicago Outlaws. The resulting photobook, The Bikeriders, will be showcased at the Atlas Gallery this summer – see more images here.

Now on MOCAtv: the story of Mike Kelley’s Kandors, his scaled-down representations of the fictional capital of Krypton, Superman’s home planet. Kelley analyzed versions of Kandor rendered by different artists throughout the long history of the DC Comics serial, and constructed three-dimensional models that duplicate the size and detail of the diverse stylizations found in different episodes.
"Mike [Kelley] told me that he saw this early, I guess you could call it a band, that I had when I was going to school in Toronto. He called it noise garage, which was actually great, because I never had a name for what we did. Our teacher, George Manupelli, got us a gig at the ann Arbor Film Festival. They ended up pulling the plug on us. But Mike was there, and I didn’t meet him, but he said it kind of inspired him to go home and start a noise garage band. And I guess that became Destroy All Monsters."—Kim Gordon.
