Wrangler butts drive us nuts!!! Check out what you get (while supplies last) when you pre-order the new Me First and the Gimme Gimmes record Love Their Country from our webstore before it comes out on October 17th. We went ahead and put a delicious wild berry wine cooler in it for your viewing pleasure because this is actually what you would drink 3/4’s of and then hurl in your Chevy side-step. It’s wet AND it’s dry. I think you’d better tell all your cowboy friends you drank 14 Buds instead of what your Aunt drinks to “unwind” up at the lake so they won’t brand you behind the barn. This thing will keep your hands warm and your tasty beverage cold while you are tippin’ cows at midnight. Listen to Ghost Riders In The Sky and enjoy your new coozie.
So I pretty much blew it in Mrs. Mills Spanish class so I don’t know what is entirely happening but here is another note from NOFX about some of their cancelled shows…
Ya cambiamos los pasajes para regresar a casa sin saber todo lo que estaba involucrado. La intencion es ir a Costa Rica y Cuba el aÃ±o que viene, vamos a poner mas informacion sobre esto en la pagina (vamos a hacer los shows, Colombia y Venezuela con Santiago, Cheo and Sergio) ahora sabemos que son los unicos que pueden hacer los shows de NOFX ahi.
I guess the show in Peru got cancelled too.
Fat Mike sent us a report from their tour in South America. Diarrhea, joints and missed flights…sounds like a blast.
Hello, Fat Mike reporting in from Buenos Aires. So far this tour has been awesome aside from a few missed flights and food poisoning. The good news is we will be playing the next few shows in Lima, Santiago de Chile, and Guayaquil. The bad news is the shows in Colombia and Venezuela are cancelled because the original organizers lied to us repeatedly (the promoters Cheo in Caracas and Sergio in Medellin are not to blame). In fact the club Santiago booked us in BogotÃ¡ had no idea that any show existed. We apologize to all the kids who bought tickets in those countries. Hopefully you all can get your money back. For sure, we are not getting our $25,000 back that we spent on plane tickets. Had the promoters in those two countries actually bought us the tickets they said they had bought, we wouldn’t be having these problems. Anyway, I’m not gonna go into all the details of how we’re getting screwed. All I know is that every other show in South America has been super cool and we’re having a great fucking time. Thanks to all the kids who are showing up and throwing joints at us. See ya around, Fat Mike.

We posted the e-card for the new Me First and the Gimme Gimmes record in the media section. Also, go ahead and rubberneck this video that somebody made of the Gimmes version of Goodbye Earl laid over the original video by the Dixie Chicks. How exquisite is the NYPD Blue dude’s mustache? It’s a top caliber cookie-duster. Joey had this to say about the video, “That is the best thing I’ve seen in a while. It works perfectly with our version. I wish it really was our video.” So do we man.
Hey cowpie, peep this fancy moving picture of Me First and the Gimme Gimmes that one of their pals shot during a recent photo shoot for their upcoming record Love Their Country. Nature and animals have a delicate way of saying, “Don’t fuck with me” so you have to watch until the very end to see the Gimmes get “bucked” with. It’s way different than the video of them at that donkey show in Tija…um, nevermind. Oh…my…god!…look away, look away, look away.
On a side note…seriously…how bad ass is Joey’s dancing? I’m not joking. Someone let that intergalactic funk-machine out of his cage. I think he’s too busy humping the stage in Lagwagon to let the moves lay the grooves.
A punk from the LA Weekly interviewed Fat Mike of NOFX and wrote about it.
