We made it to Salsomaggiore for tonight’s show at the Devil’s Den which is a really cool little bar run by a Ramones fan named John. After we loaded our stuff in the bar we ate some of their amazing pizza. We then headed down the street to an gelato shop owned by Franz’ buddy Fabio, another Ramones fan. Being the trained monkeys that we are, Franz had us make a fake commercial for “Marky Ramone’s Cookies”; a flavor of ice cream Marky has endorsed. The commercial for the ice cream stars Marky has the local Ramones fans wincing. The ice cream is actually pretty good. I think his commercial and Franz’ fake commercial with us can be found on YouTube.
Salsomaggiore is a beautiful town. The hotel is great and has real mid-century furniture I’m thinking of taking with me.

Here we are outside the hotel.


Here’s the spa where we threatened to have a soak.


Typical street scene



Hi. We're Head. How's it going? We're from Seattle. We've been kicking around the hardscrabble streets of Queen Anne Hill since 1990. Head consists of Ree Ree on Bass/Vocals, Touch on Guitar and Tulu on Drums. The Giggles was a full time member of the band up until 1999 when he got his head screwed on straight and went into the Head Army Reserves. We've put out several records on our imprint Evil Clown Records as well as records on Steve Priest Fan Club, Regal Select and Goner. We average about 3 or 4 shows a year. 2011 we played 2 shows. Looks like 2012 will be more than that. I'll believe it when I see it.
