  • Far from Nowhere
Fast-forward to the year 2003: Slick Shoes are still only in their early twenties, yet they're already releasing their Stasium-produced fifth effort, Far From Nowhere, and they've accrued the experience of a veteran punk outfit 10-plus years their senior. Their influences alone (the Descendents, Circle Jerks, Germs, Angelic Upstarts) signify the musical maturity of a much older and wiser group, Slick Shoes' songs are never preachy or alienating, Kepke's faith does come through in his uniquely positive lyrics on punchy, pogo-friendly numbers like "Now Is The Time," "When We Were Young," and "Hope Against Hope" - all of which deal with (as Kepke words it) "the journey of growing up," Far from bumming kids out, Slick Shoes' music seems to genuinely lift young fans' spirits. "We don't care how huge or popular we get," adds Nixon with similar modesty. "Really, if a few people listen to us and it cheers them up, or if a couple kids come to our show and like us, then we've done our job. We're just going to do our best." And judging from the full-circle sound of Far From Nowhere, their best is more than good enough.
