SNFU: What No One Else Wanted To Say

by Chris Walter

Book Image Not Available
Overview
For the first time ever in print, follow SNFU as they roam across four continents, leaving a trail of furious bouncers, blown amplifiers, crooked promoters, abandoned lovers, worn-out vehicles, and broken beer bottles in their wake. From not only the mouths of bandmembers both past and present, but also from those who were there to clean up the mess and carry the gear, this is the inspirational yet difficult and even ruinous story of SNFU, the legendary Canadian punk band that never knew when to quit.
Description
In 1982, five brave but foolish young men traded the safety and boredom of suburbia for a brutal regimen of greasy food, endless touring, shaky gear, dingy bars, too much booze, and violent fans. While SNFU did not immediately seem like obvious candidates for punk rock stardom, they quickly rose up to take not just Edmonton, Alberta, but the entire world by storm. By combining the flamboyant stage antics and political lyricism of singer Chi Pig with the infectious guitar attack of Marc and Brent Belke, SNFU fully embodied the spirit of punk rock that lives on today. Now, for the first time ever, follow SNFU as they roam across four continents, leaving a trail of furious bouncers, blown amplifiers, crooked promoters, abandoned lovers, worn-out vehicles, and broken beer bottles in their wake. From not only the mouths of bandmembers both past and present, but also from those who were there to clean up the mess and carry the gear, this is the inspirational yet difficult and even ruinous story of SNFU, the legendary Canadian punk band that never knew when to quit.
About the author
Chris Walter, a recovering drug addict and hope-to-die punk rocker, began writing purposefully in 1998 after realizing that his life up to that point had been meaningless. His first published novel, Punk Rules OK went largely unnoticed except by detractors, inspiring him to take a DIY approach to the game. With help from his girlfriend who worked at a printing shop, he started GFY Press and began to write, publish, and distribute a steady stream of fiction novels and music biographies. After kicking drugs to the curb in 2001, GFY Press expanded to include unschooled troublemakers Simon Snotface, Stewart Black, and an Australian, Drew Gates, drawing further criticism from the established literary industry. More than twenty titles and fourteen years later, Chris Walter and GFY Press remain unrepentant and committed.
