...and now for something completely different

Recently my mind has been wandering from its usual dance based moorings in search of hooks and choruses to chant along to. Nothing like screaming out songs from your youth to make you feel tribal again.

Big Boys came from close to my original neck of the woods, Austin, Texas. I grew up a little further south but when possible we always drove up to the weirdo capital of Texas to catch live shows and bask in the atmosphere of a truely liberated town.

These guys played a hardcore based rock and roll that also took influeces from funk and whatever else caught their attention at the time. Here are a few songs that take me back to high school and driving around town with nothing better to do than drink and sing along.

Big Boys - Hollywood Swinging

Big Boys - Fun Fun Fun

Big Boys - Sound on Sound
