Personal and the Pizzas
Personal and the Pizzas’s 7″ single, “Diet Crime & Delinquency,” was released on November 22, 2011 on Oops Baby Records. Their debut LP, Raw Pie was released in 2010 by 1-2-3-4 Go! Records on vinyl, and Burger Records on cassette. The Pizzas have also released a slew of excellent 7″ and other releases on G.O.O.C. Entertainment, Rob’s House, Bubbledumb, Search and Destroy Records, Windian, Red Lounge, Bachelor Records, Trouble in the Mind, and Florida’s Dying/Total Punk.
Personal and the Pizzas win because they steal from all of the right people, they have a solid schtick, and they write awesome, often hilarious songs. Plus they keep a certain level of menace in their songs that is missing in a lot of the bands out there writing pop songs. And when you get this in the mail make sure you buy a 6 pack, and a pepperoni pizza to complete the experience.
“Listen If: You love the Ramones, have outgrown Weird Al, and your sense of humor is twisted as Little Caeser’s crazy bread.”
“Claiming to hail from the Garden State, the band heaps a Benny Tudino’s-sized slice of ham onto songs about chains, brass knuckles, and, most importantly, pizza–the cornerstone of any punk’s diet.”
“(Personal and the Pizzas) Combine a generous helping of ’60s garage influence with a dash of pop sensibil-ity, and top it off with Joey Ramone’s vocal styling, and what results is vintage-tinged but far from uninspired.”
