As most of you know, four days ago Fat Mike set up his own twitter account. Well, it took him all of two days to scoop us on a news story, post some incomplete artwork for an upcoming NOFX release, and set off various threads of misinformation in the blogosphereâ¦ talk about your classic backfire. So, now is probably a good time for us to step in and give you the straight dope.
On August 17th weâll be releasing *NOFX*âs The Longest EP, a collection of 30 EP tracks from 1987 to 2009, plus rarities, out of print stuff and previously unreleased outtakes. Instead of paying like $30 for the 5 EPâs, you can get em all on one CD for $10. You can scope the final artwork (including Melvin this time) below, which happens to be by the same dude that illustrated the cover of The Longest Line. In conjunction with this release the other EPâs will be going out of print. One other tidbit, the double lp will be a limited pressing! Get the original CDâs while you still canâ¦
Go here for the full track list.
So thereâs this guy, Fat_Mike, whoâs been pretending to be me on Tweeter for several months now. I didnât really pay attention cuz Iâm not on any of the other social networks and I figured what harm could it do? Well apparently a lot cuz now this douche has 6000 followers and heâs a total prick. I donât like someone going around making my bad name even worse. I get in enough trouble with the actual things I say. I donât need any more help, thanks. So Iâve decided to actually start twitting on my own. This is totally retarded, but I gotta fight fire withâ¦â¦.well, drugs and alcohol. Here I go into the wild world of no privacy and way too much information. It starts here with my first twat:
My Tweeter name is FatMike_of_NOFX and Iâm an alcoholic
