Bigwig is one of those bands that I’ve always been shocked that they never completely exploded in terms of popularity goes. After years of releasing solid after solid album, it’s pretty damn hard to believe that Stay Asleep (my first Bigwig album) came out nearly 10 years ago.
These days, not unlike Propagandhi, Bigwig plays a more thrashy punk rock… but back in the day (aaaand I’m officially old), the sound was a much more melodic almost skate type of punk rock. And jesus christ can that guy strum faaaaast (just take a listen to the opening of “Board Dumb”).
Highly recommended, I’ve been listening to it nonstop for the past few days.
