About Pump Up The Valuum by NOFX

This album took fuckin' forever, even longer than Decline. we started in December of '99 and finished in February '00. Of course we took the holidays off and we went on a three week tour in Jan. We recorded like 22 songs, but we scrapped 8 of them. We'll finish them some other time. The title track "Pump Up the Valuum" got cut from the album. that's wierd. we gave it to Epitaph for punk o rama 5. there's another song called "san francisco fat" that is gonna go on the next fat comp. the vinyl on the album is clear, and limited to some number. i guess a lot of the songs on this record are about drugs. i guess that's because we like drugs and like singin' about them even more. well our drummer doesn't like them so much. he did so much of em he had to quit seven years ago. but he's not writing the lyrics. am i rambling, i feel like i'm rambling, any way, i like this album. there's no ska, no reggae, no jazz, just punk and punk and a little polka. i don't feel the need to ever play a ska song again, but ya never know. yes, i definitely think i am rambling.

I had perspective of being in a band on 2 different labels. I knew how bands should be treated and designed a label that did just that.

I started putting out records in 85, then worked for a distributor, then a label, and then made a plan to start a label that was different.

I had a vision of what I wanted my label to be. I learned from Mystic, what not to do, and from Epitaph, Lookout and Dischord what to do.

The reason Fat is successful is because we have so many super cool and amazing bands. If I don't say it enough. Dear bands, THANK YOU!
