Album Review
Mayjahn
Reviewed 2015-05-30 
Artist: NOFX & Friends

Album: Home Street Home the Musical

Label: Fat Wreck Chord

The album features performances by Fat Mike and NOFX, and includes Frank Turner, Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba, Lena Hall, Stacey Dee, the late Tony Sly of No Use For A Name, and Dance Hall Crashers’ Karina Denike. Members of Descendents, Lagwagon, Old Man Markley, Mad Caddies, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, The Aggrolites, The Living End, The Real McKenzies, and RKL also play on many of the tracks. Home Street Home revolves around Sue, a 16-year old runaway who plunges headfirst into the deviant subculture and alternative lifestyle of the streets. Pretty cool album, explores a lot of dark themes relating to teenagers, upbringing, family, and abuse. Laden with FCCs so watch out.
