NOFX: Coaster: CD

Jul 02, 2009

We’ve all listened to NOFX. You’ve heard one album, you’ve heard them all in terms of format. There’s usually a horn solo track supplied by El Hefe, a political song, and plenty of humor: “I Am An Alcoholic,” “We Call It America,” and “First Call” respectively. They’ve been making music for nearly twenty-six years now and Coaster proves that NOFX still has their humor. In “Creeping out Sara,” Fat Mike sings about his chance meeting with Sara, the reported other lesbian twin, of pop group Tegan and Sara. Needless to say, their conversation includes “threesomes” and “fourgies.” And no, the humor doesn’t stop there, as even the CD title Coaster is a gimmick stab at using their CD as a coaster and the vinyl version they appropriately titled Frisbee. But, on the vinyl the track, “Sara” is substituted for “Tegan” and the lyrics change appropriately. But, hey, they are twins and as the lyrics go, “That’s when I realized it was Sara, or maybe it was Tegan.” If only I could sell my dick and fart jokes to the record store… I guess Fat Mike and company get to have the last laugh once again. –N.L.
