Includes unpublished photos of The White StripesThe KillsTV on the RadioSpiritualizedThe Soledad Brothers and more. A very limited edition of 250 copies available only from TMB/TMR. About the book, Pantano says, “. . . Fish is not only a tour diary of photos, but also, a photo journal of my life while in The Dirtbombs. There are images from tour, but also images from around tour; before leaving; after coming home; at home trying to figure out what I was going to do next; staged portraits I was working on; snapshots from evenings out; pictures of bands from Detroit. And then of course shows. Hotels, beds, backstages, giant spiders. The images for Fish are shot largely on film and date from 2000–2013.”
