SNFU: A Happy Number: 7”

Jan 31, 2018

I would have never guessed that I was going to review a new SNFU single in 2017. This band has played a massive part in my life and I have seen them play more than any other band. Of course, I am not talking about that unfortunate LP they released a few years ago. Really, I don’t want to talk about it. Well, here we are with a new two-song slab being released by original guitarist/songwriter Muc B. that features a couple of cleaned up demos from the 2000ish era of the band. First off, I feel like people are going to be a little weirded out and maybe even put off. It isn’t the shredding skate punk that the band is most known for at all. These songs are hauntingly strange little ditties with keyboards and a drum machine… and I absolutely love them! They have a similar feel to some of the solo stuff that Chi was doing around the same time. I also think of the Gibby Haynes & His Problem album that came out around then. SNFU was a band that was always taking shit from their fans for branching off in different artistic directions, and I think that may happen again. Muc says he will be releasing another 7” as well, and I for one can’t wait. –Ty Stranglehold (Rake,
