Joe Thompson and Hey Colossus have been part of the European underground scene since 2003, touring the hard miles round the continent and releasing twelve albums.

Seventeen tracks are explored here, with squats, empty rooms and rammed festivals played along the way. DIY by instinct, sonic and ethical influences from all who have pressed their own records, from Sun Ra to Wiley via Minor Threat are detailed. With funny, self-deprecating honesty Thompson nails a sometimes thankless, but always rewarding life making music in a community of friends; ageing gratefully and very, very noisily. Multiple voices tell the story and, refreshingly, fellow travellers are fully credited and valued.

“To this day I genuinely think these moments are worth the fight.”
