This is not just a honest and gritty journey through the revolutions of Punk and Crass et al. Its also a first class tale capturing the feeling of the pure desolation of the no-hope horizon offered to a working class child in 60's/70's Dagenham and the yearning for more than a xerox copy of their parents' life sentence.
