Gorilla Biscuits "Glow In The Dark" Start Today 25 Anniversary Super7 Toy
Gorilla Biscuits are a straight edge hardcore band from New York, NY founded in 1986. After making a name for themselves by being regulars at CBGB Sunday matinees, GB released a self-titled 7" and their Start Today LP on Revelation Records in 1988 and 1989, respectively. Though steeped in NYHC tradition, the records were different, a new kind of thing. Their sound was a little more melodic than a lot of other bands in the scene, a trajectory that guitarist Walter Schreifels followed with his post-GB bands like Quicksand, Rivals Schools, and Walking Concert. But despite being catchy at times, they were still hard and moshable. The band has since gotten back together and remained active since 2006 with the band's most notable lineup of Civ, Walter on guitar, Lukey Luke on drums, Arthur on bass, and Alex Brown on guitar until his untimely passing in 2019. To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Start Today, toy company Super 7 collaborated with the band to create a glow-in-the-dark figure of their famous gorilla mascot first seen on their self-titled 7". This original Gorilla Biscuits action figure is in excellent condition, with the figure still in its original plastic packaging.
