Another week has passed, and you know that means we’re back with another blog for all you vinyl fiends! This week’s RECORD OF THE WEEK is pretty insane, and definitely one of the most impressive 7” releases we’ve seen in a while….
NOFX are back with a brand new 7” boxset containing every single 7” single they have EVER released! WOW! Appopriately titled “126 Inches of NOFX”, this boxset contains 17” different singles, as well as a brand NEW 7” single containing a rare demo from 1984! If that wasn’t enough, this monstrous boxset even comes with an exclusive NOFX 7” slipmat for your record player! I’m sure fans will lose their minds over these when they show up in the mail….Gotta give it up to Fat Wreck for going all out on this one!
