Summary
In 2009, musician Franz Nicolay left his job and over the next five years, he crossed the world with a guitar in one hand, a banjo in the other, and an accordion on his back, playing the anarcho-leftist squats and DIY spaces of the punk rock diaspora. While engaging with the works of literary predecessors from Rebecca West to Chekhov and the nineteenth-century French aristocrat the Marquis de Custine, Nicolay explores the past and future of punk rock culture in the post-Communist world
Summary
A musician's personal travelogue exploring the intersection of art and politics in Eastern Europe, the Balkans, Russia, Ukraine and Mongolia describes his creative encounters with a diverse range of people while exploring the past and future of punk rock culture in the post-Communist world
