A must read for any punk rock fan, especially ones born and raised in Canada. The book goes in depth on the history of the band all the way to the present. Fans of SNFU will get the most enjoyment out of this, but it's a great book for music fans.

My minor complaint is the authors commentary at times, it's a bit unnecessary but doesn't detract from the enjoyment you'll get.

Tons of detail in this, it goes from the early lives of the original band members, through the start of the band (including what seems like almost every show, even with addresses of many of the venues), giving quick bios of new band members and going right on up to summer of 2012. The writing was a little quirky -- lots of it was just the facts but then many paragraphs would have a sentence foreshadowing later happenings or making some kind of editorial comment.
Definitely worth a read if you're

I grew up on SNFU and am unsure how many times I say them live in the late 80's early 90's. Growing up in Alberta there were many opportunities. I continued to follow them through all these years.

The book perhaps focused on too many of the touring dates. I would have given more stars if there was more

Pretty good rundown of this Canadian punk band's history. Chris Walter's writing is straightforward but can sometimes be burdened by an overuse of cliches.

Mark Belke, the guitar player and second-longest member of the band, recently shared his thoughts about the book on his blog: http://marcbelke.com/?p=587

Rings true to the punk scene of the 80's. I was surprised to find a few of my old friends in this book! Hell, Ken showed up at a house party I threw in 1993 and the former drummer dated my daughter.

His writing style gets the job done, he has so many good stories to share.
