We pulled all of our records from the warehouse and found a lot of stock that we did not know was there.  So, I created a new Bandcamp store to sell the new releases and I put together plenty of great deals to catch up with Big Neck!

30 CDs for $25!

We will continue to add more deals and more merch.  Go to the store and take advantage of them while they last!

I have to apologize for not updating the Big Neck Website.  Our new website is taking a bit longer than we anticipated to get up and running.  So, you will see items being added to this site until we are done with the new one.

Jack Jimmy Hoodlum demos on Iphone App


I put up the Jack Jimmy Hoodlums demo on the IPhone App.  Download it from the store for FREE. Search Big Neck. 

Over the years, since I put the Jack Jimmy Hoodlums song Loose Power number one on the Pain in the Big Neck Compilation CD, everyone has been asking who are those guys?  Where did they come from?  Why has there been no more from them?  Are there more recordings?

Here is the short version:

Over the years, since I put the Jack Jimmy Hoodlums song Loose Power number one on the Pain in the Big Neck Compilation CD, everyone has been asking who are those guys?  Where did they come from?  Why has there been no more from them?  Are there more recordings?

Here is the short version:

You may have a little history of the Jack Jimmy Hoodlums from the History of Big Neck.  Basically the band consisted of Sean Garrow, Rob (who was the original bassist for the band Lollipop on Amp Rep), and honestly I forgot who the drummer was.  Hopefully Sean will read this and update me on their history so we can put into the History portion of the website.

They were at one time the premier punk rock band in Buffalo, NY right behind the Baseball Furies.  I remember every band who was big in town or coming through town would ask to play with the Jack Jimmy Hoodlums.  Sean would always play in these tight pink pants and chew gum while he played.  Rob always wore these silver sequined pants that I thought were way too tight to ever fit on any man.  These guys would tear up a stage with the best hook filled punk rock in Buffalo.

They were originally slated to be the first release on Big Neck Records, a split with the Blowtops.  The Hoodlums went into the studio and cranked out 8 classic songs.  They immediately gave me a copy.  Continued to tear up the Buffalo scene, but then they decided to break up.  I remember Sean wanting to move out of Buffalo.  Rob at the time was working for the city in parking violations (he used to sneak up on my car at Sanctuary and leave fake tickets for $1,000,000) and I think he wanted to lead a lifestyle outside of rock n roll.

I was filled with great sadness at learning of their demise.  Big Neck moved the first single to an all Blowtops single.  I always loved the Jack Jimmy Hoodlums stuff so when I finally had a chance to release part of of it, I did on the compilation.  I will still attest to this day, Loose Power is one of the most kick ass songs to ever come out of Buffalo.
