Big Boys Fun, Fun, Fun… 12″
A real mixed bag. The BIG BOYS are at their best when they play punk (“Fun…”), thrash (“Apolitical”), or jittery punk-funk like the MINUTEMEN (“Nervous” and “Prison”). When they branch out, they totally blow it. Here they butcher KOOL & THE GANG’s “Hollywood Swinging” and do awful PIG BAG imitations (“We Got Soul”) that must be aimed at audiences in New Wave discos or something. This gets a qualified recommendation at best.
