Chicago’s noisy-ass punk band, Football, is hard to find on the Internet, but that’s okay. They’re best found in-person, anyway. Their loud, abrasive brand of punk (click links to experience) has lots of the grit you’d expect and some excellent emo-Chicago tendencies you might not expect (and secretly enjoy). With hollowed-out vocals (vaguely reminiscent of Barney Gumble) and relentless guitars, these fellas are pro at riling people up whether they planned on getting riled up or not. Oh, and do the names Ponys, Baseball Furies, Hot Machines, Tight Phantomz, France Has the Bomb or A/V Murder mean anything to you? If yeah, you’ll be happy to note that the connections with these bands are tight.
Football opens up for Jaill’s release party in a couple weeks. We hope they like bowling and we hope you’ll like Football.
