Is This the Most Self-Aware Band Ever? They’re Old, They Suck and They Know It

If you appreciate truth in advertising, you’ll take an instant liking to SFH (short for Shit From Hell), a trio of “geriatric punk rockers” from Toronto who have just released an album called Kinda Suck which they say captures “the style, the sound, and the smell of ’77 punk.” Here’s their self-penned bio.

Shit From Hell, perhaps the most-appropriately named band in the known universe, today released their fourth studio album, the (also appropriately-named), SFH Kinda Suck.

“We are all about lowering expectations,” said bassist and lead screamer Winkie.  “With a name like Shit From Hell, what did you expect?”

Around their mothers and children, however, the band call themselves SFH.  When playing gigs in and around the Greater Toronto Area, SFH also call themselves “lucky to be alive and not in prison anymore.”

SFH KInda Suck was recorded at Iguana Studios by Nick Lobodycz earlier in the Summer of 2017.  The record features sure-fire hits like ‘Kinda Sucks,’ ‘TV Show’ and ‘Eighties Dance Song.’  All are catchier than a drawer full of fish hooks.

As well, the long-player contains SFH’s loving, respectful tribute to the 45th president of the United States, ‘Donald Trump Is An Asshole’ – as well as their paean to Da Brudders, ‘Ramones Song.’  In addition, SFH Kinda Suck offers the band’s millions of fans their cover of the Outcasts’ immortal tune, ‘Self-Conscious Over You.’
