Razorcake #77 reviewed Big Neck's Record Store Day compilation!
Big Neck Record Store Day 7" EP
As the titled suggests, this is Big Neck's compilation contribution to this year's Record Store Day Celebration. Populating the disc are one track each by the Livids, XRays, Cheap Freaks, and Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. All are fine bits of high-octane garage-influenced punk and I'll go out on a limb and guess the tracks are exclusive to this release--if not, what would be the point then right? If you dig any of the bands, or just like yer swaggering caboose handed to you by bands meting out raucous rock'n'roll, this is definitely worth the green and the scramble. - Jimmy Alvarado

If anyone has any live recordings of Big Neck Bands like the Baseball Furies, Blowtops, Sweet JAP, ect...
We would love to hear them!
This record alternates between lurching, tectonic AmRep power-slude, and kinetic, direct, hardcore punk – often within the same song. Vocals are up-front and in your face, channeling Henry Rollins, mostly Damaged era, but with elements of the first ROLLINS BAND LP. This is not a bad thing. The guitarist is a little more experimental with effects than on your typical hardcore record, giving this a slight psychedelic flair. Good stuff, hope to hear more. (AM)
