Topic: NOFX - Hepatitis Bathtub book

Anyone else here read it?

I think its a Damn good book, everyone who contributed to the book was paid by the page, so its not just Fat Mike spewing, it's quite a bit of Smelly and Melvin, and the old guitarists before Hefe, and Hefe himself too. Point is, it reads like you are sitting in a bar with the guys telling old stories of how it was. In a good, very good way.

Re: NOFX - Hepatitis Bathtub book

I'll break down and get it soon enough as I've read nothing but good reviews of it, I mean from people who weren't even nofx fans which goes further for me because quit frankly to make a long story short people who grew up listing to them just were/are never going to say anything bad about anything they do ever, I'm not gonna judge because i'm a huge fan too! Was gonna ask my local library if they could maybe order it for me but then thought twice because asking a woman in her sixties if she could get me as she would prolly hear it a "hepatitis bathtub"  i  imagine wouldn't play out to well at the local magistrates office.

Re: NOFX - Hepatitis Bathtub book

Ive been waiting to see if Fat Wreck was offering any special deals with it, but no such luck so far. Normally Id have pre-ordered it, but Im about 4 books behind in my reading list and i really didn't want to add another to the pile.

Re: NOFX - Hepatitis Bathtub book

I really enjoyed the book, then my wife read it and enjoyed it and my 20 yr old son is reading it now! It was a good birthday present from my wife (for herself too LOL)

Re: NOFX - Hepatitis Bathtub book

I tell people if you dont like it by the end of the first 14 pages then you wont like it. If you are intrigued, then buckle up because it gets much better. I really dont see how anyone in the scene, even if they hate NOFX, couldn't find some enjoyment out of the book.

I can safely predict that I wouldn't enjoy it, I don't rate the band, I dislike the label and I despise Fat Mike, I wouldn't waste a penny stoking the cunts ego or a moment reading the book with so much "on topic" material out there to choose from. There may be a few amusing quotes in there but it doesn't justify plodding through the rest of the content to get to them.
That's just me though.

Re: NOFX - Hepatitis Bathtub book

As a casual fan, I loved it. Perfect mix of funny and devastating.

It's mostly about the 80's and early 90's California punk scene, and Heroin. And S&M. For an old bastard, I kinda hoped you would give the book a try.

And he is a cunt. He may be less so if he is actually sobering up though

Re: NOFX - Hepatitis Bathtub book

^what struck me is how much of a cunt smelly was. also it was strange to hear the ex-members testify mike was the single sober member during their early days.
