Vic Bondi

Vic Bondi is a singer/songwriter and one of the founding members of political Chicago punk band called Articles of Faith. Bondi was originally a protest singer with decidedly leftist views. He went on to form Alloy, and Jones Very after AoF's demise. At the time of AoF's original breakup Bondi was working as a history instructor at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Bondi's subsequent day jobs included working on Microsoft's Encarta as managing editor of the Encarta Interactive English Learning edition (Bondi's comments on this fairly ironic form of employment can be found here). Bondi resurfaced with another politically charged band, Report Suspicious Activity, in 2006, and was featured prominently in the documentaries American Hardcore and You Weren't There. Bondi was the son of a US Navy captain and his family moved frequently when he was young: by his own count, he moved to new homes twenty-two times before the age of eighteen. He attended Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois where he majored in history. Bondi founded Articles of Faith in the early 1980s.
