A nice behind-the-scenes look at America's hardest working indy rockers

Long Ride Home chronicles the growth of the Peacemakers out of the ashes of the Refreshments. In an ironic twist, even though it's never mentioned in the film, the tour narrative cuts off just before 9/11/2001. To folks familiar with Roger and the boys from their relentless tour schedule, it'll come as no surprise that the energy of this band comes through with every frame. It's an effective mix of live performance, off-stage anecdotes from the road, and interviews with each of the band's members. The focus, of course, is on Clyne himself who is often reflective and poetic while displaying the humorous side that is so often demonstrated in his songwriting. The film itself is low-budget and looks it, but to fans that won't matter. If the sound quality of the live performances isn't perfect, that only seems to enhance and spotlight the band's brash, raw vibe. Highlights include a trip to the fireworks shop where quiet drummer PH Naffah's destructive streak shows through, and a quiet moment with guitarist Steve Larson playing cards with a bunch of folks about twice his age.
