Keeping the spirit of punk alive and well, the Pyrate Punx are a force to be reckoned with. Fed up with a lack of decent, underground gigs coming through Utah, local punk rockers saw the potential to start the Salt Lake Pyrate Punx chapter. The SLC chapter formed, drawing from a wealth of experience and influences from other Pyrate Punx chapters around the globe, and has gained quite a reputation. Currently numbering about 12 members, this interview attracted Steve “Captain Rotgut” (Year of the Wolf), Frank Carroll, Codi Aragon “Sergeant at arms,” Ballz (Ballz Out Records), Marky Terror, Ferro (Drunk as Shit) and Adam Passwaters. “We are all people that are tired of the same status quo bullshit. We are a minority, a vocal minority,” says Carroll.
