Punk Snot Dead

England, 1981: A 17-year-old disillusioned punk leaves his small town to take a life changing, rite-of-passage journey across the UK following his favorite bands.
Removed from the protection of his dysfunctional family, he is smacked in the face by reality and faced with the perils and dangers of a life on the street.
Live music culture shouldn’t be a life-threatening event but the tribal gauntlet of the early 80’s meant seeing your favorite band meant exposing yourself to junkies, gangs of Skinheads, feral bouncers and rabid undercover police officers.
Hardening quickly, our young punk adapts to living in the moment, but is this really a better life than what he left behind?
Punk Snot Dead is based on the true-life story of Cameron Mouat (aka Kerrang! Journalist, Morat). Currently residing in Las Vegas, USA with his model wife, Morat is still a renowned music journalist and photographer and has two fiction novels in development for a series by Canadian production company, Rogue Rock Pictures.
