"When you want to be part of our family, you have to be open minded person. This "brand", call it what ever you want, is not a brand anyway. Its my passion for designs, creation, being on the move all the time in my head and legs, pushing myself to more political and awareness designs to actually tell something people, pass the message of love, unity and cooperation. When you are racist, homophobe, sexist or xenophobe you should not buy this because every t-shirt / every desing is clearly against what you stand for. We are open minded people, we want to create and build society based on positivness and celebration of diversity.
We do not judge people by colour of their skin or religion or sexuality but based on who they are and how they act. Evil is evil no matter in what form or shape. Join the family and have fun with the rest of us."

Roachesandratsx "Got this in the post from Roman and it put a massive smile on my face. Getting into hardcore in 2010 was the best thing to happen to me. Would not have the confidence and happiness I have today if it wasn't for the amazing people I have met and the music. Also thank you to hardcore and my friends for getting me onto and through my nursing degree. This book has so many familiar faces from around the UK. Reminder that UKHC is smashing it."
Andrew Miller Brazier "You have created one hell of a book man, had to wait ages to get hold of it because of work, but I am so so happy with it. Thanks man."
John Kata "So I have had this book for a week now. I have looked through it every day since then. So many good memories captured at the 12Bar that was the home of Londons scene and of course Ruction for about a decade. The book really shows your love for the scene. I love the words at the beginning , and your obvious love for the label that a small bunch of my friends started. Thank you for capturing all of this. It really is an incredible book."
Rach Sleet "Sweet book - made me sad though coz of the 12 Bar shots, I miss the place...well done though its really awesome."
Maria Mog Lopez "Wag1. Completely forgot to message you about the book until now. You smashed it out the park. So nice to see so many great nights immortalised in print and the way you chose the worst picture possible of Sam Ellis to be sent out to so many people fills me with an inexplicable joy. Thank you so much for both documenting this thing we all love so much so well and also bodying Sam."
Adam Harris "I don't think we have spoken before at a show but I must shake your hand next time I am there. Thanks for this book, really. I have been playing in bands within the hardcore scene for close to 10 years now and the stage and atmosphere for me is something I will never grow tired of. It is a place I can forget everything else in my life and just let go which is a rare thing is this day and age and as I grow older the more I feel I need it. Your book captures this beautifully so I thank you. It is true that we do this for the love of it, it has never been about money for me just the music and the people. Never stop doing what you do bro and thanks for this amazing book."
