Taken in the late 90's, most likely at band practice, this photo features the stick and poke tattoo on Matthew's friend and guitar player, Dave, with whom they started the seminal punk band Monster Squad. The 'Resist' tattoo is a stick-and-poke piece done in 1995 by Gustavo Martinez (Sleeping Ghost, Peligro Social) who homemade the machine using a Walkman motor.

Matthew Kadi is a photographer, videographer, designer, avid drummer and one of the pillar figures in the present-day Californian punk scene. Introduced to punk & abstract art in junior high by his teacher, mentor and friend Wendy Brasher, Matthew & friends quickly started the now seminal punk/hardcore band Monster Squad in 1997. Later projects include Great Apes, Build Us Airplanes and Holehog.

In 1998, his Great-grandmother handed down her AE-1. This moment, along with mentor Tom Ray, sparked a lifelong interest in photography. His passion is for capturing honest, spontaneous, intrinsic portraits of punks & people, alongside electrifying moments in various social events & the fun struggles of punk shows.
