The Peep Tempel European Tour photo roundup

This was my first International band tour coverage. Whatever I do next, if I never get to do this again (tour gigs are a rarity in this day and age), I’ll feel forever blessed to have been along for The Peep Tempel’s inaugural International ride.

The tour kicked off in late August 2012, starting in France before heading across the border to Switzerland then Germany and Holland then back to Switzerland and France.

It’s a big thing for a band to live in each others pockets for six weeks, it’s bigger again to have employees fixed ┬áto the background for most of that time, so a big thanks to the lads for having me along. Thanks also to all the friends and family of the band who generously accommodated me with the same affection that the boys had earned over the years, particularly the Vanni family & Chris. Thank-you to label owner (and surrogate band manager) Adam and partner Ekka. And thanks to the new stray friends we met along the way.

I was planning on writing proper to go with this but I doubt I’ll do it justice so I’m going to stick with captioning pictures.
