When the internationally acclaimed anarcho rock 'n roll cabaret band / rebel news orchestra, Rhythm Activism tours Europe to promote a new CD to enthusiastic fans, they find a continent seething with political and racial tension. Outside the netherworld of squats, urine-drenched dives and hardcore clubs, they meet Europe's new multi-racial underclass: the working poor, street people, immigrants, the marginalized and the defiant.
This book is an amazing portrayal of that tour, told with a sense of humour and a down-to-earth perception. Part travelogue/ band chronicles, it describes an underground, indie-music scene where rebel culture rules. It also contains 23 short fiction pieces, 'urban fairy tales,' filled with a cast of friends, lovers, panhandlers and anarchists.
