Uncle Byron Sez:
"Fantastic chronicle of Travis and the band. This anti-war effort is unsurpassed by that of any other music, including that of Bob Dylan and John Lennon, both of whom never went to war, so how could they really know? Travis epitomizes the first-hand reality of being used and abused by the corrupt system."

Bloody Hero International Film Festival:
This film was a highly, highly stylized film, different from all of our other programming. A thoroughly entertaining piece.
I’m a big fan of documentaries... If you’re a fan of human drama, then you might enjoy Human Skab, it’s filled with that... extolling the virtues of the band’s music and how great it is.
Roberts is an engaging subject. Technical issues can be forgiven on account of the nano-budget. Anti-socialist turned-conspiracy-theorist; from punk to soldier to protest singer.
Examination of his PTSD and his current solitary existence in New Mexico. A great story.
