Big Boys

Big Boys


In the early eighties, Austin, TX, was a buzzing hive of hardcore music, and Big Boys were perhaps the most influential band to emerge from that bizarro bunch. Their brand of punk and aggressive funk combined with live performances that centered around crowd involvement made them an explosively exciting, and often hilarious group that perfectly embodied the DIY “start your own damn band” punk attitude. On the heels of last year’s reissue of the Big Boys’ 1981 debut, Where’s My Towel/Industry Standard, the always awesome Light In The Attic label is continuing with the reissue of the turbulent Lullabies Help The Brain Grow (1983) and Now Matter How Long The Line Is At The Cafeteria, There’s Always a Seat (1984), the final releases by the band before they split up in ’84. These funkcore staples can be picked up on May 20th, and the specific details of each reissue and their various cool collector editions can be found here.
