El Hefe debuts on this album with the song "Kill All the White Man." It's a very simple and straight forward song about the Mexican minorities! It's pretty hilarious. More serious tracks are on this CD however, such as Remnants and Death of John Smith.
This is definitely one of NOFX's better albums with the only problem being that it's too short. The reason it is so short is that they were in the middle of making White Trash, Two Heebs and a Bean and had just finished Ribbed... they also made it to introduce the talents of El Hefe... they were really stoked to have him join the band.
The sound of this album ranges from the fast and furious sound of Remnants to the slower parts of The Death of John Smith and Kill All the White Man. Additional background vocals on this album come from Joey Cape of Lagwagon (which song, I'm not sure)... definitely worth checking out.
Here's what NOFX has to say on this album:
On Life - "Life's too short to just barely exist" - Remnants
On Love - "Don't be fooled by teardrops, they're worth 1,000 lies" - Stranded
Overall, this is a great disc. And... it's cheaper than the other ones too! Go pick it up and play it over and over again! 100% NOFX at it's best!
This EP contains two songs that could easily fit in any NOFX fan's top ten list: The Death of John Smith and The Longest Line. This EP is a must for any true NOFX fan or anyone in search for a good punk recording. The cover art alone is worth the price.
Furthermore, this EP is the turning point in NOFX's career it is where they developed their characteristic sound that can be found on later full length releases.
The longest line was released in 1992 on the Fat Wreck Chords label, and was (and still is) one my favourite of all their releases to date. Although only an EP, it really is NoFX at their absolute best!
The five tracks are superbly performed by the current NoFX line-up of Erik Sandin (drums), Eric Melvin (guitar), Fat Mike (bass, vox) and El Hefe (guitar). I saw them live last year in Manchester, at which Mike pointed out that their latest album wasn't as good as Punk In Drublic. Well I would be sure it isn't as good as this EP!
Overall this EP is a must for any NoFX fan, and a compliment to any collection of this genre.

Short and sweet, `The Longest Line' was recorded as an excuse for NOFX to show off their new guitar player El Hefe. Read morePublished on December 22, 2004 by Patrick Stott
