Former youngsters look back on their band scene and the first steps of the Combat Rock Industry label. Fighting against authority is a part of being young, and future plans don’t include a 9-to-5 job at the paper factory. Adults may be side-eyeing the punks, but these leather-jacketed anti-system warriors are vegan conscientious objectors who hate Nazis.

 

The boys represent the last generation before the internet, and people from sleepy small towns recognise the urge to get out of there as fast as possible as far as possible. Generation Z can admire or alternatively be horrified by how in the old days the only way to get to play gigs abroad was to write letter.

 

The documentary shows that if you want something, you have to do it yourself.
