Formed in New York in 1971, the New York Dolls are a peerless rock n’ roll band who’s influence on music over the past four decades is almost beyond compare. Combining an aggressively androgynous style with street smart New York attitude and humour, the New York Dolls ushered in the era of CBGBs, loud guitars and great pop songs, which gave rise to The Ramones, Television, Blondie and many more.
In There’s No Bones In Ice Cream, published on July 19th by Omnibus Press, founder member Sylvain Sylvain leads the reader through his unique first hand oral history with warmth, humour and honesty. From his early life in New York after his family fled Cairo shortly after his birth, to the rise, fall, and rise again of the band and all his misadventures in between.
