Hardcore For The Losers presents Craig Lewis " The punk counsellor using his DIY ethic to promote mental health and wellbeing.
Stability through punk, Peer counsellor and punk Craig Lewis suffered three decades of unnecessary medication and abuse at the hands of the psychiatric system. Today, he offers young punks struggling with mental health challenges an alternative path to recovery.
Craig owes his survival to punk. When nobody else cared, the punk community in his hometown of Boston, Massachusetts accepted him and gave him a much-needed sense of belonging. He remembers vividly the first time he ever met another punk – the day he was first placed in a mental institution, on April 13, 1988, aged 14.

+ political acoustic support by Alex Alert
No Love Songs for the Working Class is the Acoustic Side-Project of Dead City Radio´s singer Alex Alert from St. Pölten/Vienna, trying to connect a Working-Class-Anarchist attitude to the genre of Protestsongwriting.
The songs and lyrics are to be understood under an anti-fascist, anti-racist, queer-tolerant and animal-friendly aspect.
