A new Motörhead photo book has been released.

Titled Fast & Loose, the collection includes previously unreleased shots of the “Ace of Spades” legends taken between 1977 and 1982 by photographer Graham Mitchell, who was also the band’s tour manager.

“I somehow knew how important it all was,” Mitchell says of taking the photos. “I knew I needed to capture at least some of those moments. I’d see the band to the stage and then immediately go out into the house, jostle with the punters, and get what I could.”

Mitchell adds that the photos reflect the oft-uttered Motörhead motto: “Take no f***ing prisoners.”

“It always made sense to me,” Mitchell says. “I like to think these photos capture that in all its (occasionally grotty but never boring) glory.”

Fast & Loose is out now in the U.S., and will be released in the U.K. on December 30.
