Alright, here’s the deal. For the first time ever, we’ll be releasing a limited edition NOFX deluxe box set that contains 18 classic NOFX 7”s. Many of these titles have been long out of print, such as Don’t Call Me White, All of Me, Louise & Liza, Timmy the Turtle, Pods & Gods, 13 Stitches, etc. Artwork for each 7” has been spruced up and new vinyl masters have been cut. View the box set cover below and order yours now as the Fat webstore has a ‘special edition’ with each 7” being pressed on a different, special vinyl color. On release day, April 24th, the ‘standard edition’ will be going gold, available in stores. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that one of the 7”s (a box set exclusive) will be the recently unearthed Thalidomide Child EP recorded back in 1984! You can read more about that release here.
Some of you may remember the day you sent us a letter and three bucks back in the day for the initial and epic Fat compilation Fat Music For Fat People, available only on CD at the time. (Ed. note: This was my first of many mail in orders to Fat Wreck Chords. Ahh memories) Well the tables have turned and times have changed. We couldn’t be more pumped to offer this legendary comp on vinyl for the first and only time. This is a limited onetime pressing and we have a limited amount of color vinyl. This will be shipping immediately so order now!!
