“In every one of these valleys there’s some kind of crystal clear creek… and I think that’s what we go up there for. It’s to let go of everything and get into a different state of mind without taking a fist full of pills.” Chicago, Illinois, punk band Pegboy is slated to hit the 2012 Fly Fishing Film Tour as part of a 17-minute edit from the upcoming DVD release Heart of the Driftless. This 3-minute “Reverb” trailer is a good glimpse into how the hardcore scene is momentarily left behind on the river. Rock on.
“This is a trailer for a show about three musicians who were all part of the late ’80s, early ’90s punk rock scene in Chicago…and they happen to all fly fish. A 17 minute version will be on the 2012 Fly Fishing Film Tour. The full 52 minute version will be on a soon to be released dvd “Heart of the Driftless” which will hopefully be out in March 2012. Please visit both Pegboy and Rights of the Accused myspace pages for more information. Pegboy songs and cd’s can be downloaded from Quarterstick/Touch & Go records website.
