About So Long & Thanks For All The Shoes by NOFX

This was recorded in SF With Ryan Greene at Motor Studios. A nice place to record a punk record. The title is not referring to Airwalk or Vans, it is from a Douglas Adams book called, "So Long and Thanks For All the Fish." We tend to get hit with a lot of shoes when we play so we thought it was a good title. It's not our last album. Nate from the Bosstones came by and played guitar on a couple songs. That was pretty cool. We kinda went for more of an old school sound on this record. More hardcore than the previous one. I like it. Favorite song-Desperation's Gone. Too bad about ska getting mainstream, I don't think I wanna play it anymore.

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!
