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.
