Welcome to taoStyle


During the 80’s, when I lived in NYC, I co-published and edited an Indie music zine called X-Posure. It covered the Anti-Folk scene on the Lower East Side, that Mainstream Music Media by and large ignored, except for Jon Pareles at the New York Times. Mr. Pareles wrote about Anti-Folk because I somehow persuaded him (and Bob Dylan among others)  to come and see Lach, Anti-Folk’s kingpin, who I  managed at the time. Mr. Dylan, needless to say, did not take kindly to being used as a publicity stunt.

Nevertheless, Anti-Folk and our little zine found its way to far flung places, engaging many with its infectious, alternative appeal. Today Lach has a BBC Radio Show.

taoStyle was conceived in the same light – an online zine that would bring Taos and its diverse and bohemian spirit to kindred souls, wherever you may be.

This is very much a community effort; the photographers, writers, artists and others you’ll meet here are the reason Taos is unlike any other small American town. I could not do this without them.

Thanksgiving is here, Taos Ski Valley is open for the Season and we have snow!

I look forward to your comments along the way.


Thanks for reading.
