Album review: NOFX

Coaster

Twenty six years, hundreds of songs, and little change in NOFX’s sound; this is old-school pop-punk. Beneath their notorious humour, 11th studio album ‘Coaster’ is less angry than previous political witch hunts, but Fat Mike and co still love to offend: Christians get a bashing and Mike’s own dad receives the middle finger on his death bed during ‘My Orphan Year’. ‘Creeping Out Sara’ immaturely punches lesbian twin rockers Tegan And Sara in the tits: “Maybe I just pissed her off/When I asked her if her sister and her had ever had a threesome”. Not gay with a gay sister? Then try ‘The Agony Of Victory’, which asks you to “dance like a retard” instead. Old’s cool – who else dares to be this stupid in their 40s?
