Before five star hotels and personal jets, before regular hotels and economy class seats, even before Motel 6 and tour buses, there is the tour van. In 2009, music photographer Adam PW Smith flew to England to spend a week touring with the Vancouver-based celtic-gypsy-polka-cider-punk band The Dreadnoughts in the middle of their first European tour. The result is a book that reveals much about life as a young, touring band who bring real meaning back to the DIY ethic, and a few things about what it's like to be a 43 year old trying to survive in that environment.

Such a great book. Couldn't put it down. I'm sad it's over.
