Perennial Warped Tour participants the Ataris took a break from their hectic touring and Kung Fu Records release schedule to drop this EP for legendary West Coast punk label Fat Wreck Chords in 1998. Look Forward to Failure blasts off with their classic "San Dimas High School Football Rules," which, along with the closer "That Special Girl," also appears on the Ataris' 1999 full-length release Blue Skies, Broken Hearts...Next 12 Exits. The borrowed material, and every track on this six-song EP, packs more than enough punch to satisfy punk fans without sacrificing the hooks necessary to interest listeners more familiar with pop-punk crossover artists like the Offspring and blink-182. With friends in the highest of punk places, the Ataris had no problem building a large following along with fellow '90s punkers and touring mates NOFX, MXPX, and the Alkaline Trio, and Look Forward to Failure did nothing to diminish the band's growing reputation as an energetic, rising punk songwriting powerhouse. ~ Vincent Jeffries
Artist Overview
The Ataris were discovered by Vandals bassist Joe Escalante and subsequently signed to his label, Kung Fu Records. Once a full band was assembled by Ataris frontman Kris Roe, the group began a series of increasingly successful albums and tours with many of their musical heroes, including NOFX and Social Distortion. With their 2003 major-label debut SO LONG, ASTORIA the earnest pop-punk rockers reached an even wider audience and had their first major hit with a cover of Don Henley's "Boys of Summer."
