80s Hardcore

Fun Fun Fun…
BIGS BOYS Documentary //
More Now Showing!

Having an open mind is one of the greatest things that I have taken away from my teenage years. Hardcore during the 80’s was not a straight line, which meant you had bands that were on the same road, but took paths to get there. What was interesting about the scenes back then is that every state or even city had their own style of creating what we all labeled “hardcore.” The TEXAS scene was full of killer bands that were weird as fuck but were making some of the most interesting music of the era. The BIG BOYS were a band that I really grew to love; both their recordings & live shows kept me excited. Seeing them perform was always cool because it seemed like a big party – they would reach into their bag of funk and turn the motherfucker out! It’s hard to describe seeing a room full of hardcore kids dancing to the funky beat of “We Got Soul” (thinking about it puts a smile on my face!). Their front man Biscuits was in his own world of radness and knew how to get the crowd into the show. Another thing that made me dig the BIG BOYS was their love for skateboarding, which made me even love them more – plus they also had an awesome logo. Honestly I’m getting chills writing this post, because thinking about all of the times I saw them in Los Angeles I never knew I watching one of the sickest punk bands to ever do it. It must be said this band never got their just due when they were active, but their tunes can still rock a house party like no other. The other day I watched a documentary about them entitled Big Boys – Looking Back It’s Just Reflections from Light in the Attic Docs, which we are showing in full after the jump! Thank you Randy “Biscuit” Turner (R.I.P) and the BIGS BOYS for creating on your own terms – you influenced a generation to say fuck the so-called “normal” (we are all still Hollywood swinging)!
