Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
If you're in a touring rock band and you insist on smoking weed - never do it while the band's tour bus is parked and don't smoke up in front of the bus, but rather, when it's moving and down the back and with the window wide open.

And as a drummer as well as an author, Atkins should know. He's been a member of such bands as Public Image Limited, Ministry, Killing Joke, and PIgface and has, as they say, seen it all.

The film features artists such as Esma, Fanfare Ciocarlia, Antonio el Pipa, Taraf de Haidouks and Maharaja.
