NOFX - Backstage Passport, one of the best bits of telly ever?

I've just had a press release from Fat Wreck Chords announcing that the fantastic NOFX - Backstage Passport will shortly be available to buy on DVD at www.fatwreck.com

This is a fly on the wall series filmed during NOFX's 2006 crazy tour of places that don't 'do punk' traditionally. The series captures brilliantly the sheer insanity and adventure of stepping off the traditional gig circuit. Even if you're not a fan of NOFX (or even punk) this is still one of the most entertaining things you'll ever see. It's brutally honest as well, you'll see just how stressed members get when things start to go very wrong, as well as just how well they are protected and looked after by their tight knit road crew. One of the more alarming factors of this tour is just how drunk their road manager Kent gets on a regular basis, sometimes it's hilarious but most of the time it had me on the edge of my seat, cringing so hard I could barely watch!

I very much doubt you'll be disappointed!
