Well here is another Austin, Texas band. Released in 1980 this is their debut studio recorded 7". You see before this, they released Live At Rauls as a split with The Dicks. The Big Boys were insanely popular with skaters around the country which to me was strange, because they did not have the faster, faster play faster approach. The Big Boys Incorporated funk, blues, rock and punk in a very interesting and volatile blend. Vocalist Randy Bisquit Turner was a big dude that would dress in drag and scare the crap outta ya. In fact all of the Big Boys were well ummm big boys. So if you were to get offended by Randy it would be tough luck on ya! For those that know some US Hardcore history. The Bad Brains freaked out in Austin while staying with The Big Boys. You see, Randy was the first openly gay hardcore dude. I guess it did not mix with the Rasta lifestyle. What is it about Austin...MDC, Dicks, Big Boys. Other assorted trivia, the bassist would later turn up in Junkyard with Brian Baker of Minor Threat, Government Issue, Dag Nasty and now of Bad Religion....man that sure is a who's who in punk huh.
Anyways, I am a big Big Boys fan and it is my pleasure to share this with you. I might even do teh Fun Fun Fun ep sometime.
