Above you see a clip of the gigantically-probiscused New Wave performer, Skafish. This is from the movie, “Urgh! A Music War,” and it was my first exposure to Jim Skafish and his bizarre, yet very appealing music. He is considered the godfather of Chicago punk, and he’s still plugging away at it. You can check out his website and his blog for the latest updates.  There aren’t many videos of the man floating around ou there, but after the jump, take in “Disgracing The Family Name” so you can more fully experience the pure punk joy that is Skafish.
