They were, in the memory of Minor Threat frontman Ian MacKaye, "Enormous men, decorated jump suits, a horn section, 200 friends onstage singing and dancing." They were Big Boys by name and by nature - and they had a big effect on US punk culture. When the prevailing trend was for playing hard and fast, this Austin, Texas four-piece played loose and funky. Their cult recordings struck a blend between punk ideology and clever humor, just as the band both railed against and celebrated the hardcore community that bore them.

Released at the time of their split in 1985 and now reissued by Modern Classics Recordings, the group's final album, No Matter How Long the Line Is At the Cafeteria, There's Always a Seat finds Big Boys continuing to innovate, even including the sound of turntable scratching on "Common Beat," a sound rarely heard outside of hip-hop at the time. Songs like "Which Way To Go" and "Narrow View" echo their boredom and anger with the changing hardcore scene, while "I Do Care" and "What's The Word" illustrate the band's positive outlook for things to come." - LIGHT IN THE ATTIC/MODERN CLASSICS
