Austrian subculture is ALIVE and people indentify with the artists running the scenes and the attitude they stand for. At the borders of the national music scene artists from related professions started to make a living with works for touring bands, venues and promoters and are now well-know side acts to local events and even international acts from Rock, Pop-Punk, Indie and Metal.
Acts like Pearl Jam, Blink-182, Pixies, Mastodon, NOFX, Elder, Texta, Wanda, Voodoo Jürgens and others and well-established festivals like Lake on Fire Festival uses the help of those artists presenting their stuff in the right light and push themselves on another level.
Now, it is time to celebrate these artists with a collection of their best works, stuffed together on 264 pages.
