Heavy Load in New York

Categories: Documentary, Music, Biography
3min | 2009
Heavy Load are Lewes' answer to the Ramones, a punk band subject to the usual inflammatory mix of ego, fantasy, and desire. They're also, uniquely, made up of musicians with and without learning disabilities. The band's survival is a precarious negotiation between two different worlds: on the one hand the institutional timetable of day centers, work placements and social workers; on the other hand the chaotic slacker life of rehearsal rooms, studios and gigs.
