Joe & The Shitboys
Joe & the Shitboys are four queer vegan punks from the Faroe Islands. This band was formed with the intention of calling out shitty behaviour, not only in the conservative Faroe Islands where the rock scene is filled with boneless homophobes and misogynists, but in general.
The band took inspiration from an artwork, found in the basement of an old abandoned school, with the words ‘The Reson For Hardcore Vibes’ together with crude drawings of a gun, a bat, brass knuckles and a set of hedge shears, somehow perfectly encapsulating the subtle nuances between punk, satire, teenage angst/anger and earnestness. And that’s exactly, in so many words, what Joe & The Shitboys are all about.
