A story of a remote town outside London where people tend to move out of once adolescence is finished. A group of musically minded people heard punk rock, stayed, opened a venue and created their own sound.

This was a garage / punk / mod thing. It dipped its toes into psycho billy but that was more lazy journalism trying to pigeonhole a sound than anything else. 

A story of creativity and of people really doing it for themselves.
