Mike Diboll looks back on his life, connecting his experience as young punk producing a fanzine to his later experience in the midst of the Bahrain revolution. By so doing, he suggests a new way of writing about the punk experience, going beyond history writing, discourse analysis and cultural studies based approaches to reveal how punk pasts can be used in personal-political presents to enable personal-political agency for social and political justice, and to effect therapeutic or curative transformations in a context of a neoliberal mental health pandemic.
