About ten years ago NOFX had a song called "Lower", a b-side taken from the "Pump Up The Valuum" album. An album I consider the worst stuff this band ever released. Releasing b-sides is a trend that never goes out of style with punk bands. And now, with "Cokie The Clown", NOFX are reaching new heights. The lowest state of their whole career happens right now, right these days. "Lowest" would have fit as the best song on this EP.

The idea of releasing five b-side songs of what I now consider the worst NOFX album to date, "Coaster" is nothing but tragic. The title track, and the whole Fat Mike\' s idea of being seen a clown doesn\' t make me laugh. It doesn\' t make me cry either, actually. Sad as it is, songs like "Fermented And Flailing" and "Codependence Day" are the classic fast pop punk tracks, while "Straight Outta Massachusetts" sounds more like a b-side of the NOFX Seven Inch Club.

Nowadays I consider "Pump Up The Valuum" a record with a couple of NOFX\' s finest songs. Who knows ten years from now "Cokie The Clown" will be seen as one of the highest EP in human history and the "Five songs that were too good to be on the Coaster album" motto will really be right. Blame time, like everybody else.
