Over the years as S.N.F.U travelled the world over they would leave cryptic symbols in almost every continent, many claim they have been drawn by Animal " Mr Chi Pig" Chinn. Some say these images came to him in a dream, others say he was some sort of conduit for ancient outsider art. In our quest to find Chi we have come across many of the ancient symbols. What do they mean? are they clues to his possible whereabouts now? Trying to crack the code, we have heard rumours of an S.N.F.U gathering in Vancouver on Feb 1 2013 at Thrashers (Funky's). In an effort to draw him out songs have begun to appear, apparently for an new S.N.F.U record. Will this be enough to bring him out of hiding? Have the evil forces that invaded punk rock been deposed of? We can't be certain yet, and the question still remains, HAVE YOU SEEN HIM?

Trying their best to draw out the elusive Animal “Mr Chi Pig”Chinn, hard core musicians Jon Card, Sean Colig, Ken Flemming, and Kerry Cyr have been furiously creating music in east Vancouver. In order to capture the raw power that is punk rock and finding the missing icon, rumors have spread that a new S.N.F.U record is in the works. Since the beginning Animal Chinn has found his home on thousands of stages across the globe, often cited as the best live act, and considered by many the godfathers of “skate punk” S.N.F.U is preparing the ancient art of guttural, from the heart, defiant music. This will be the key to finding the legendary Chi Pig. Following in the ancient cryptic tradition of S.N.F.U records having seven word titles, taken from Chinese scrolls discovered by Chi, the new album will be known as “ NEVER TOUBLE TROUBLE, UNTIL TROUBLE TOUBLES YOU”. So the search continues……..

In the beginning…
A man named Kendall “ Mr Chi Pig” Chinn from the bowels of the frozen Canadian prairies hopped off his skateboard and did a flying high kick of a bass drum on to a stage. He became one of the most enigmatic singers of all time. Others followed and a musical revolution was born.
But one day dark forces began to invade the culture of music and outsider art and Mr Chi Pig was forced to go underground.
