The story of Hamburg's FC St. Pauli is unlike any other football club. The 2. Bundesliga club's ethos and logos extend beyond the German quarter; most influential within the global punk subculture. Close-Up Journalist Ali Johan wandered around the St. Pauli neighbourhood to chat with two lifelong fans of the club about its worldwide appeal, the shared ideals of the fans which also include a personal anecdote from a FCSP fan about Malaysia's punk establishment Rumah Api.
