Originally a one-page manifesto, this poignant and funny pamphlet documents over a decade of experiences, both supporting musicians with learning disabilities and being part of a D.I.Y. punk scene. Through anecdotes, observations and the voices of the people he’s met along the way, artist Richard Phoenix shares moments that have stayed with him, and shows us how he re-evaluated his perception of Do-It-Yourself culture. Featuring Daniel Wakeford, Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät, The Fish Police, Beat Express, Robyn Steward, Electric Fire and more.
