Punks Around #1: Nizhny Life

by Alexander Herbert

Punx anthology about visiting other scenes

Each issue of “Punks Around” features a story written by a contributor drawing from their experience in another county or region's punk scene. The stories are not empty descriptions of the scene, but first person narratives. The project provides an opportunity for people to shares their stories and practice their hand at creative writing, becoming a sort of archive of transnational and transregional punk counterculture. Please pick up a copy and submit your story!

#1 Features a story by Alex Herbert, author of the forthcoming oral history of punk rock in Russia. The story centers around his first experience of Russian punk in Nizhny Novgorod in 2012.
