Since 1981, Edmonton/Vancouver punks SNFU have worn a groove into the bedrock of the hardcore genre. In particular, frontman Mr. Chi Pig (Ken Chinn) positioned himself as something of a skate-punk guru during a string of mid-'90s albums while the band was signed to Epitaph Records, including such seven-word titles as Something Green and Leafy This Way Comes and The One Voted Most Likely to Succeed. The band's 1996 LP, FYULABA, gained attention for its barbed critiques of then-popular culture icons Kate Moss ("You Make Me Thick"), Eddie Vedder ("Better Than Eddie Vedder"), and John Wayne Bobbitt ("Bobbitt"). After multiple lineup changes over the years, the band's output has grown somewhat inconsistent, and a 2010 documentary—Open Your Mouth and Say...Mr. Chi Pig—exposed Chinn's serious battles with drug addiction, schizophrenia, and homelessness. A new incarnation of the band has formed for this tour, which also features Tesco Vee's legendary Meatmen. RYAN J. PRADO
