In addition to the nihilistically clever moniker, WFC? brings tight musicianship, blistering riffage and an in-your-face attitude to the St. Louis punk scene. With all of its members having been active in local hardcore bands for years, WFC? does not carry itself like a new band at all, but rather a finely honed one. Playing fast hardcore punk that borrows influence from bands such as Poison Idea, Infest and Tear It Up, the four-piece cuts like a rusty scalpel on record, annihilating and infecting anything it touches. Its live shows are almost unsettling; Lead singer Gus Theodorow growls and barks like a rabid animal, spitting lyrical hatred in an off-kilter and sincerely angry fashion. Jimmy Eberle plays his guitar like he's trying to snap it in half, drummer CG keeps pace at a speed best described as "frantic," and bassist Kevo Gash provides the band's thick backbone. Early 2012 will see the release of WFC?'s debut EP, and a two-week East Coast tour is in the works just in time for spring. —Daniel Hill
