The Club

The 7" of the Month Club was something like Fat Wreck Chord's Fat Club, except with exclusively NOFX singles. For US$60 (US$80 overseas) you received one 7" record each month, from February 2005 through January 2006. There are 2-3 tracks on each record. Early in May 2006, Fat Wreck put some leftover sets on sale for $80. They sold out in less than a week.

The first 3 000 members got coloured vinyl. Since there were not enough members to make pressing black vinyl worthwhile these are limited to 3 000 copies each and are only available on coloured vinyl. The 3 000th member joined in September 2005, 7 months after the club started.

After a while, Fat decided to repress the club on black wax, which would be sold in stores / distros to anyone. Every single record was supposed to be repressed on BLACK wax only, but the pressing plant messed up. The represses are also supposedly more limited than the original club. See the represses section below for more information.

The cover art for each record was sent in by fans. Fat chose between a lot of submissions and each winner got a free subscription to the club. Each insert show a few more submissions that were rejected, with credits to the artists.

The Joke

#01-a A punk, a rabbi, and a republican walk into a bar...
#01-b They seat themselves as far away from one another as possible...

#02-a The bartender asks the punk for his order, "One shot of whiskey"
#02-b The bartender smiles and says. "One shot of whiskey coming right up"

#03-a As the bartender walks back to the bar, the rabbi begins to chant a prayer...
#03-b The punk rolls his eyes and mutters under his breath. "Shut up old man"...

#04-a The bartender says "You can't speak to my customers that way"...
#04-b The punk downs his whiskey and says, "Sorry but the rabbi's a fuckin' douche bag"...

#05-a The republican says to the bartender, "Get that asshole outta here!"...
#05-b The punk hears this and says, "I may be an asshole but at least I'm not a douche bag"...

#06-a The bartender turns to the republican and tells him "You're the asshole"...
#06-b Then the bartender and the punk beat the shit out of the republican.

#07-a Then they kick the republican out of the bar...
#07-b The Rabbi then asks, why did you kick that man out of the bar?

#08-a The punk replies "cuz he's a republican you fuckin' douche bag!"
#08-b The bartender slams a bottle to the bar and says...

#09-a "I told you that you must respect my customers."
#09-b The punk replies, "I do respect your customers."

#10-a "...I'm just saying the rabbi was a douchebag"
#10-b "Ok youre out of here" says the bartender as he kicks the punk.

#11-a The bartender apologizes to the rabbi and says...
#11-b "Let me get you a drink on the house. What'll you have?"

#12-a "The rabbi replies 'well, I'll have a vinegar and water'"
#12-b Blank

The Labels

When the first 7" Of The Month Club showed up in January 2005, we at NOFX Wiki immediately noticed that the a-side had variations. Through the whole club, we noticed there were a total of 7 different label variations, but each record has 4 of them, probably chosen randomly. The same thing occurs for all the represses.

Label Variations
# Background Text Logo Side of #
1. Black White White Left
2. Black White White Right
3. Black White Blue Right
4. Black White / Blue White Right
5. Blue Black / White Black Right
6. Blue Black / White Black Left
7. Blue White Black Left

Represses

SOME STILL AVAILABLE

  • Most of the represses on color are different from the original color.
  • Some copies that were identical to the originals floated around; we believe they might be leftovers from the original club that got distributed with the represses. (See *)
  • There are two known mispresses, for #05 and #09
