What is there to say about NOFX that hasn’t already been answered with a snarky retort from Fat Mike himself? Pop punk’s most famous mohawked bassist and his crew have been at it for three decades and counting, during which time they’ve burned more bridges than most people would have the time to build. But if you listen to the opening salvo of “Six Years On Dope” — during which Mike and guitarist Eric Melvin bicker over who’s going to do “the yell” — you’ll swear these merry pranksters are just getting started. Maybe that’s what makes First Ditch Effort such an appealing name for the band’s upcoming 13th (!) studio album. As with most things NOFX, this one’s not a “goodbye” or a “see you later” but a triumphant “fuck you!” to anyone who thought these guys didn’t have another world-beater left in ‘em. It just took a bit longer to squeak out than all the others; as the first NOFX album since 2012’s Self/Entitled, it comes after the longest gap in the band’s history.
