Pioneering lowbrow artist The Pizz (Stephen Pizzuro) has died at age 57, a tragic loss of a great underground talent. We send our sympathy to his family and friends. From The Pizz’s self-penned bio on his site.
It’s been the definitive long and strange trip from hashing out those notebook masterpieces in the back corner of the classroom to rightfully assuming the title of Lord of Lowbrow. From doing Rat Fink comix for the legendary Big Daddy Roth hisowndamnself, transforming the lowly skateboard deck into an artistic canvas in ways unforeseen, splashing flash on the walls of tattoo shops the world over, delighting the kiddies and authorities alike with a set of trading cards featuring your favorite mass-murderers, burrowing into record collections around the globe via Sympathy For The Record Industry cover art, conquering the realm of canvas and paint, packing’em in for shows at the world HQ of lowbrow art galleries, La Luz De Jesus in Los Angeles, no less than 6 times, to foisting his tome Atavistic Avatar upon the masses, the fuzzy-chinned one has been quite the industrious vermin gnawing at the cheese of established convention.

Harley-Davidson rider Kenny Coolbeth Jr. finished second in the Don Tilley Memorial Half-Mile at Charlotte Motor Speedway and clawed his way back into championship contention in the AMA Pro Harley-Davidson GNC1 presented by Vance & Hines flat track series. It was the second-consecutive GNC1 podium finish for Coolbeth aboard the Zanotti Racing Harley-Davidson XR750 motorcycle.
“It’s great to put my team’s Harley-Davidson back on the box,” said Coolbeth. “I found a good line high up on the track tonight. Consistency wins championships and we still need some points, but another strong performance has us in the picture.”
With three races left in the season, the GNC1 standings tightened considerably as Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle Wrecking Crew rider Jared Mees finished 17th in the Charlotte GNC1 main. Mees, who rides the Rogers Racing Las Vegas H-D/Blue Springs H-D Harley-Davidson XR750 motorcycle, has 158 points. Bryan Smith won at Charlotte and is in second place with 152 points. Sammy Halbert finished third at Charlotte and is third with 140 points. Coolbeth is in fourth place with 129 points.
Smith started on the pole for the 25-lap main and battled Mees and Coolbeth for the first 10 laps before the race was stopped following a crash by Jeffery Carver. On the restart Smith, Coolbeth and Mees again went to the front and opened a gap on the field. Smith and Mees were racing for the win when Mees fell off the pace on the last lap.
Former AMA Grand National champion Jake Johnson replaced the injured factory team rider Brad Baker on the Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle Factory XR750 motorcycle and finished in eighth place. The Harley-Davidson Wrecking Crew riders will be back in action September 5 on the Springfield Mile at the Illinois State Fairgrounds.

“Department of Public Safety Lt. Steven Schwartz, a 17-year department veteran, testified at the morning hearing that William and Morgan English wore patches that identified them as members of a group called Distorted. Another patch identified them as members of a support group for the Bandidos, which Schwartz said has been identified as a criminal street gang.
He said he thinks the Englishes were aware of the rift between the Cossacks and Bandidos and they were there that day as a show of support for the Bandidos.”
“Schwartz said they wore patches that said they support the Bandidos, so that tells him they are at least “somewhat involved in criminal activity.”
He said he saw nothing that day and has developed no subsequent evidence to show the Englishes are involved in criminal activity.” (see Waco Tribune)
