PB: Which English bands inspired you?The Damned were supposed to play two upcoming NYC shows - one on New Years Eve, and one a day earlier. Now they are playing the Chance on December 30th, and only one NYC show (on New Years Eve) (tickets). The Dickies are also playing New Years in NYC...
Dickies guitarist Stan Lee: I liked The Damned and The Buzzcocks. I saw The Damned at the Starwood [LA] when there was about 14 people watching them. And I went 'Yeah - I'm going to start learning to play guitar'.

Happy Punk New Year! Punknews is reporting that The Dickies have added a New Years Eve show at Bowery Electric (the bar co-owned by Jesse Malin) followed by an already-on-sale night of raucous rampaging at Southpaw on Jan 2nd. Bowery Electric details are scare, but assuming it's true, that means that New Year's Eve offers a PAIR of 70s punk pioneers to choose from... as we know that The Damned are set to blast off at Gramercy (as well as on Dec 30th).
an actual pizza box
The East Village rocker boys behind Bowery Electric, Jesse Malin and Johnny T, along with Kevin Cole (of Two Boots fame), have teamed up, all in the name of pizza. The rock 'n' roll trio is the force behind The Pizza Shop, located on Avenue A and 7th Street, which officially has its grand opening tonight [June 25, 2008]. The spot has been serving pizza since the 1960s, but the new owners decided to gussy up the space a bit......All the pizza boxes are limited edition prints. According to a press release we received: "Around 1500 of each box style is made and then never reproduced. The first one being a photo of The Clash from 1979 taken by world famous rock photographer Bob Gruen. Each box will have a different image created by well known and local artists featuring their particular style and medium and these boxes are free with a purchase of any pizza." As we mentioned earlier, tonight's the opening, so if you're in the hood, stop by for your very own signed Bob Gruen pizza box!" [PAPER]Pizza Shop (an actual pizza place, not a club or bar) is right next door to Niagara, a bar that Jesse Malin also owns, and where you'll find the famous mural of The Clash's Joe Strummer on the outside wall.
