    Heavy load Disabled Punk Rock Band

    Heavy Load were a British Punk Rock band, described by The Sunday Times as "possibly the most genuinely punk band touring today".

    Never laughed so much, shooting these guys.

    Disabled Punk Rock,.. You What,...?

    Its members met at Southdown Housing, a non-profit assisted-living community for people with mental health issues and learning disabilities and were a mix of service users and staff.

    The band were also the founders of the charity Stay Up Late, a campaign seeking to improve the social lives of people with learning difficulties by calling for more flexible staff hours.

    Stay Up Late is a national charity promoting full and active social lives for people with learning disabilities.

    Heavy Load split in September 2012 with a final gig in London's Trafalgar Square as part of the Paralympic festivities.

    But while they were together touring Berlin, NYC and 2 gigs at Glastonbury Festival,

    I traveled alongside, documenting their shenanigans and laughing almost all the time,....
