When I hear someone say ânewgrassâ Iâm usually thinking itâs got something to do with a dealer getting a new connection or a dumb thing about resurfacing an outfield, but for the kids in Old Man Markley itâs more of a way of life. Nine punks playing together since 2007 with a penchant for old timey porch type shit and red white and blue acoustic guitars? Violins? Girls in the band? A fucking homemade washtub bass??? Thatâs right folks, we heard their album and had to have them. On October 26th, weâll release a two song 7â titled For Better, For Worse and you can hear the title track by clicking here! Hell, we are giving it away for free, so download it right now and get stoked for their full length which comes out early 2011. Take a gander at their tour dates in September/October by going here.
And now, a word from Joey of OMM:
The night was moist. It was a Tuesday. We all sat patiently at Mark Stern of Youth Brigadeâs house (name drop #1), glaring at a cell phone. It rang. Fat Mike (name drop #2) was on the other end. He said he wanted to put out the studio record we had already recorded (with Joby Ford from the Bronx, name drop #3) but not released yet. We said cool. We decided to wait until January to release the album and a 7â in October. Itâs a lot easier to start with 7â and work up to 12â. âFor Better, For Worseâ would be the A-side and we thought a punk cover would be good for the b-side of the 7â. Screeching Weaselâs âThe Science of Mythâ was something we had fiddled around with, pun intended, and FM was down. We worked out an OMM arrangement and knocked out the song in a 17 hour day (with Jason La Rocca from the Briggs, name drop #4). The rest is future history.
The Bouncing Souls, Cobra Skulls and Old Man Markley will be joining NOFX on their first southeastern tour in more than three years. You can check out the dates below. Additionally, theyâve just announced theyâll be heading to Australia & New Zealand in December. Take a peek at what Fat Mike had to say about it here!

Check the dates here as itâs going to be a riot!
I was going to be funny and write a really long drawn out boring news post to commemorate release day for NOFXâs The Longest EP. Get it? Eh, Iâm tired and fuck, Fat Mike says it better anyway so take a look at what he wrote below. In the meantime, hereâs the gist; The Longest EP is a collection of 30 EP tracks from 1987 to 2009, plus rarities, out of print stuff and previously unreleased outtakes and it comes out today, hurray! You can listen to a full album stream compliments of AOL/Spinner by clicking here! Dan Sites, who designed the cover art for The Longest Line lent his talents to The Longest EP artwork, check it out here! You can order this release digitally, CD or on vinyl by going here.
We have a new CD that just came out called âThe Longest EPâ, but I am suggesting to not buy it. Instead you should go to a store and buy each individual EP. The Longest Line, Never Trust a Hippy, Cokie the Clown, Dinosaurs Will Die, The PMRC can suck on this, Regaining Unconciousness, and the many compilations that some of the songs can be found on. You should be able to buy all of them for a mere 38 bucks. Well worth it. Never mind about the two unreleased songs or the super hard to find S/M airlines 7 inch. Those songs arenât very good anyway. Once again, donât buy the Longest EP for $10 through Fat Wreck Chords or Interpunk. Take the $38 dollar option. Thank you, NOFX
