Biography

Erik Sandin, often called Smelly, is the drummer of the popular California punk band, NOFX. He was a founding member of the band when they formed in Hollywood, California, in 1983, but moved to Santa Barbara two years later, leaving the band.

In just one year without Sandin, the band had already gone through two drummers (Scott Sellers and Scott Aldahl) and in 1986 the band talked Sandin into rejoining NOFX. He was addicted to heroin since his departure from NOFX, but in 1992 before the White Trash, Two Heebs and a Bean recordings, he checked into a rehabilitation facility and cleaned himself up. According to the NOFX official website: “He won’t even eat chicken if it has wine sauce on it. He made it clear that NOFX was more important to him than drugs.” He has been NOFX’s permanent drummer since his return in 1986, and played drums on every NOFX full-length album and EP released. The 2007 album They’ve Actually Gotten Worse Live! band Dogpiss featured a song about him called “Erik Sandin’s Stand In” on the Fat Wreck Chords compilation album Short Music For Short People.
