Produced by Spot, legendary in-house producer at SST Records, Lullabies
is an album that caught the band in ever-turbulent mode, switching
drummers through the recording from Fred Schultz to Rey Washam - the
fourth person to occupy the stool for vocalist Randy "Biscuit" Turner,
guitarist Tim Kerr and bassist Chris Gates. The album found the band
testing the boundaries of their wide-ranging sound, with double-quick
thrashers like "Lesson" and double-funky jams like "Funk Off" (helped
along by the brass of the Fun Fun Fun 12" horn section). Kerr took lead vocals on two tracks, and on "Sound On Sound" they
combine his languid delivery and pendulum bass in a way that must have pricked the ears of a young Steven Malkmus.
With features in the earliest issues of Thrasher magazine and coveted spots on their influential Skate Rock tape c omps, Big Boys
were the first band to be labeled "skate rock", the nascent version of
the world-conquering skate punk of the late 1980s and 1990s. Now, Light
In The Attic's Modern Classics Recordings imprint is bringing their
pioneering music to a new audience. Following the 2013 re-release of Where's My Towel / Industry Standard, 2014 sees reissues of both Lullabies Help The Brain Grow and the following year's, No Matter How Long The Line Is At The Cafeteria, There's Always A Seat, which brought the band's story to a close." - MODERN CLASSICS
