"...bridges the gap between the grassroots activism of the hippie '60s and the DIY ethic that all but defined punk from the mid- '70's to about noon yesterday...a heartfelt look at the dedication, perseverance and (no pun intended) concerted effort it takes for a small group of driven, like-minded people to confront the powers that be - not on their turf, but on your own - while also examining the motivation it takes for someone to try it in the first place." Eric Danville, Punk Magazine
