Beer + No Talent + Homosexual tension + Beer + Violence = Traitors. Members of this band went on to form other bands. Like The Atari Star, Alkaline Trio, Crimson Teeth, Rape-Ape, Das Kapital, Haymarket Riot, Bruised Pussy, Pegboy, Weather, Small Bathroom Fire, Glory Holes, Thingvilla, Aqua-TOT, Gasoline Fight and WHALER. Seach for yourself.
Punk rock and roll blah blah blah ex-members ofblah blah blah beer guzzling blah blah blah. Look. The Traitors are Chicago's most feared band. They've been kicked out of the Empty Bottle, Metro TWICE, Fireside 11 times, Gilman St.(Fucking Hippie Punks, fuck that club membership my ass.), EMO'S, Elvis Room, The Mutiny, Fuse Box, Gold Dollar and Florida. They were "too much" for Jenny Jones' pro wrestling episode. Damn it, they've even kicked out their own members on occasion. They're Steve Albini and David Yow's favorite band. Maybe they're alien freakazoids, too, but they're definitely on a mission. With an atomic mix of violently raw rawkers that Estrus Records would kill to have and the fastest songs this side of 1978, the Traitors are just that, traitors to the world of "punk" they were weened on, so much so that they don't even call it punk. "What kind of music do they play?" LOUD AND FAST. The white belts (i.e. indie hipsters) don't want you to know The Traitors are out there, cause a Traitors show is too much fun and you'd give up on all that posturing indie drivel. More than that, the white belts don't want you to know THEY listen to the Traitors, because the Traitors are what every band wants to be: good music and good times, exactly why you, they, and everyone began to listen to the music in the first place.
Go start a fight with the White-Belts!
