With the recording of NOFX’s acclaimed 2012 release Self-Entitled, the band upheld their tradition of uber proficient song writing and emerged from the studio with more songs than they had room for on the album.
Leading up to the release of Self-Entitled and over the course of the following year the band put together a series of 7”s, each featuring one or two of these unreleased gems.
The Stoke Extinguisher 7” represents the fourth and final installment of the series.
The title track accomplishes exactly the opposite of what the name implies.
Sneaking in with some low-fi reverb filled vocals, it quickly changes course unleashing an unbelievably fat guitar riff accompanied by the band’s trademark blend of melody and pummeling rhythm.
The b-side is filled out by a rousing rendition of Tony Sly’s “The Shortest Pier”.
Stoke Extinguisher is a onetime limited pressing which promises to put the rabid NOFX vinyl collectors in a frenzy.
