Cokie The Clown (NOFX’s Fat Mike) Releases New Single Featuring Travis Barker
The beauty of NOFX frontman Fat Mike’s alter ego Cokie The Clown is that the inclusion of face paint and a tragic frown makes him able to do and say things that Mike cannot. So for fans who want to hear what Mike really thinks, Cokie The Clown is back with a new album, You’re Welcome, and a new single thereon, called Punk Rock Saved My Life.
The album, released (of course) by Fat Wreck Chords, has a pretty incredible crew backing it. Producing the record is Danny Lohner (Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle), on drums is blink-182’s Travis Barker, and on keyboards is GN’R’s own Dizzy Reed.
The album drops Friday, April 25, but is already available for pre-order. Until then, listen to the tragicomedy of Punk Rock Saved My Life below. We can’t wait to hear the rest of the album – especially if it sounds like this gem.
