Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

The past: The New York Dolls, along with Iggy Pop and the Stooges and MC5, are credited as the godfathers of punk rock. The original line-up formed in 1971 and played its first show on Christmas Eve at a homeless shelter. The band broke up in 1975. In 2004, Morrissey organized a reunion of the three surviving band members, frontman David Johansen, guitarist Sylvain Sylvain and bassist Arthur Kane, who died that same year. In 2006, they reformed yet again and released a new album, One Day It Will Please Us To Remember Even This.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
