Culled From the bandís entire discography, which includes their releases on Asian Man Records, Epitaph Records, and FAT, "We Are The Champions Of The World" serves as both a retrospective and an introduction to the Chicago institution. The track list was handpicked by the band bassist/ vocalist Brendan Kelly, guitarist/vocalist Chris McCaughan, and drummer Neil Hennessy in order to show how these three friends went from making gritty, lo-fi records to becoming some of the sharpest songwriters in all of punk. In addition to the monumental track list, all the liner notes were written by Kelly and McCaughan. They both reflect on how each song came to be, sharing anecdotes about what inspired them to put pen to paper, without explicitly detailing what the songs are about. The result is a fun glimpse into the bandís creative process, that preserves the mythology built up by fans over the years. Finally, the track list boasts a little something new for even the most seasoned fans of THE LAWRENCE ARMS, with 5 previously
unreleased and super rare songs. In all, We Are The Champions Of The World serves as the perfect collection for newcomers and longtime fanatics alike.
