Lucky Lawler

Lucky grew up in London during the great Punk yrs. Lucky feels saved by Punk Rock'n'Roll. Lucky has done life in NYC doing a variety of jobs.

One day after having read the dictionary out of sheer boredom, Lucky moved on to the yellow pages to see what other people did in life and kept stopping at publishing, and so was born the New York Waste newspaper.
One thing about Lucky is that Lucky loves the printed page.
Always going to gigs and shows with some sort of camera in pocket, shooting the underground rock scene in NYC for 17 yrs exclusively for the New York Waste newspaper, "a little rag that I have put out since 97 with the help of some of the best, the weirdest and the wildest that nyc?s has to offer?"
