Biografia

The Big Boys were a pioneering band who are credited with helping introduce the new style of hardcore punk that became popular in the 1980s.

Based in Austin, Texas the band members were Randy “Biscuit” Turner on vocals, Tim Kerr on guitar and Chris Gates on bass. Over the years the group played with five drummers in all; Steve Collier, Greg Murray, Fred Shultz, Rey Washam and Kevin Tubb who played only one show (the bands first) because Steve was sick.

Big Boys shows were legendary, frequently involving food fights, ‘Biscuit’ in a tutu, or dress, and invitations to the audience to come up and sing along, which often occurred. At the end of early shows, the band was famous for yelling, “OK y’all, go start your own band.”

They were also one of the first bands involved in the skatepunk scene, appearing in Thrasher skateboarding magazine and in Thrasher’s videos, and had their own Big Boys skateboard. After a Bad Brains show in Austin that ended in controversy involving Biscuit (and later inspired the songs “Brickwall” and “Pay to Come Along” by MDC), conflicts began to arise within the band, specifically between Biscuit and Chris. The Big Boys played their last show very unexpectedly. Biscuit and Chris never spoke to each other again.
