We’d like to set the record straight about the bleeps in NOFX: Backstage Passport. We sent the original tapes for the show to FUSE back in 2007, they digitized them and edited them for TV, and then they “LOST” the unedited masters. After two months of FUSE “looking for them” we decided to move on. Therefore, our only choice was to use Fuse’s edited version for the DVD. We agree, it totally sucks that all the colorful language has been censored, but we’re just glad that the DVD will make Backstage Passport accessible to more people than originally saw it when FUSE aired it…Plus, we did our very best to make up for all that bleeping in the 2 hours of bonus footage—there’s something in there to offend everybody! Hurray!
Once again, we’ve signed another band from Compton! Well, maybe it’s the first band we’ve signed from Compton…Actually, maybe it’s the first punk band ever outta Compton. Go listen to them here at their MySpace page, and look for album info and a release date back here soon.
In 2006 NOFX went on a world tour and brought a camera guy. In 2008 Fuse aired the resulting 8-episode television show to rave reviews. Today, for the first time ever you can purchase the entire season on a 2 disc DVD with over two hours of bonus footage that were way too hot and disgusting for TV.
