Last month, we told you about the temporary demise of the Joe Strummer mural on the exterior of Niagara Bar at Avenue A and 7th Street. The piece, created by street artists Dr. REVOLT and Zephyr after Strummer's death in 2002, was taken down to facilitate structural repairs to the building.


But good news for Clash devotees: The mural is back! Dr. REVOLT spent four days this week re-creating the now-iconic piece, and the new version was unveiled last night with a little help from Clash guitarist Mick Jones and filmmaker Jim Jarmusch. (EV Grieve was on the scene; check out photos and video from the party.)


To see how the new piece came together, check out a time-lapse video of Dr. REVOLT painting the wall below. It's good to see a bit of East Village history back in action.
