About this movie

Fat Wreck Chords -- the influential music label proud to say they've spent the past 25 years "ruining punk rock." A Fat Wreck tells the story of founders Fat Mike (of the legendary punk band NOFX) and his ex-wife Erin Kelly-Burkett, spanning the birth, growth, struggles, and survival of the Fat Wreck Chords label.

Half inspirational story of chosen family and community, half debauchery and occasionally involuntary drug use, A Fat Wreck blazes exciting new ground in the cinematic genre of puppet-driven punk rock music documentary filmmaking. If you only see one film featuring a dominatrix spanking a puppet in your lifetime...make it A Fat Wreck!

Really good movie, but no so much new infos about Fat. I mean, it's a really good intro to anyone new to Fat, but for people who knows the label for 20 years... In short, nothing special, but still really nice to see how that label really influenced our vision of music!

If you came up a punk rock kid in the 90's and your only source of information about kick ass punk rock bands was through comps like the fat wreck comps, you will absolutely love this. I remember listening to those comps in heavy rotation and I find it amazing to actually see what the members of those bands actually look like since there wasn't an accessible source of information in those days.
