In 2016 punk poet Henry Raby visited the British Library’s exhibition on punk which presented the genre as a packable relic. To kick back, Henry celebrates 40 Years of Punk Rock by breathing life into the spiky spirit of resistance.
Henry tells the tale of fictional band Vandal Raptor. They were the greatest 4-piece dinosaur-themed punk band in the scene. Snarling through songs and snapping strings, they sang about changing the world…until they broke up.
Our story finds them 10 years later accidentally reunited in their old stomping ground. Has their passion for DIY and protest gone extinct, or still roaring loud?
Using spoken word, poetry, live music and raw story-telling Henry tells a tale of rebellion, growing up and friendship.

'Henry’s vivid use of description and ability to illustrate a scene meant that it felt like the four characters in the story were in the room with us' - York Press
'A perfect demonstration of a performance as protest, performance as change, and how one person can make a difference by creating a space where people can be brought together.' ★★★★★ Broadway Baby
