Big D And The Kids Table

The Boston ensemble Big D and the Kids Table brought on their fast-paced style of ska-punk upon their debut in 1995. But like most ska bands, a revolving lineup frequented for the next three years as the Allston-based crew self-released their debut 1997 split with pop-punkers Drexel, Shot by Lammi (recorded for only $700), and the Live EP. Both were issued on their own Fork in Hand Records, run by vocalist David McWane and bassist Steve Foote. By the time Big D signed with Asian Man Records, the ten-piece of McWane, Foote, Gabe Feenberg (trombone), Dan Stoppelman (trumpet), Sean P. Rogan (guitar), Marc Flynn (trombone), Chris Bush (tenor sax), Jon Lammi (guitar), Max MacVeety (drums), and Chris Sallen (tenor sax) had already released their first full-length, Good Luck, in 1999. Known for an especially rowdy live show, Big D picked up the award for Outstanding Ska Band at the 1999 Boston Music Awards before Mike Park and Asian Man reissued Good Luck. The band returned in 2002 with the Gipsy Hill EP and continued with their notoriously relentless show schedule (playing an average of 200 shows a year), as a split EP with Japanese noise rock act Melt Banana appeared in 2003. Fueled by a D.I.Y. work ethic since early on, the band's small but loyal fan base kept growing through incessant grassroots touring and promotion, all with little label support and money. Big D hooked up with part of the summer's Warped Tour and played at Vegas' Ska Summit. They headed out across North America in 2004 on the Ska Is Dead and You're Next tour with Catch 22, Mustard Plug, and the Planet Smashers; their Springman debut, How It Goes, was released that same year. Big D stayed on the road, of course, hooking up with the likes of the Suicide Machines, Reel Big Fish, Streetlight Manifesto, RX Bandits, and more. By this time, the band was down to seven members: McWane, Foote, Stoppelman, Rogan, Bush, drummer Jon Reilly, and trombonist Paul E. Cuttler. The limited-edition Salem Girls EP appeared for Halloween 2005; Big D then returned to the studio by 2006's end to work on their next full-length and debut for SideOneDummy Records, with Mighty Mighty Bosstones bassist Joe Gittleman in the production chair. With new saxophonist Ryan O'Connor on board in place of Bush, the chilled-out vibe of Strictly Rude surfaced in March 2007. The album was preceded by a February split via Bad News Records with China's Brain Failure, entitled Beijing to Boston. The band teamed up with Gittleman again in 2009 for their fifth studio album, Fluent in Stroll, before hitting the road on their own headlining tour. Big D eventually took a break from the road, and in 2011 released For The Damned, The Dumb & The Delirious. ~ Mike DaRonco & Corey Apar, Rovi

@nowhereman3 9 3 True that
This album kind of sucks. I more or less liked all their albums up til this one though. This album just has dumb lyrics and boring music.
All BigD is great, I hope they keep writing and never stop

Note to Mike Da Ronco & Corey Apar: Big D has new members not mentioned in the Bio. Derek Davis on drums and Chris Lucca on trumpet.

skavolution
shot by lammi and goodluck are the s**t, doesn't get much better.

went downhill when they retired quiet room and some other classics from their live show. still tear it up though

was so happy to see them on the 2010 warped tour list but then upset that they wouldnt be at the show im going too....sall good though, reel big fish will be there to fill the gap
Old Big D all the way new Big D not so much.
phatmatt624
Big D or bust!
Yeah, they were at the Warped Tour 2009, right after Fluent In Stroll was released. The show was much more mellow and 50's-styled than their usual ska-punk shtick, but it was still cool and a good show, as always.
hagemanallan

dramallama22
They sound a lot like The Specials, except American. Hey, the Specials are awesome. I dig it.

Marc Flynn (who also fronted Drexel with McWane on drums) played flugelhorn every time I saw them live. He also contributed just as much vocally as Dave. (They were a killer live band with 2 vocalists.) And when he left to concentrate on his band, he took the punk rock right out of Big D. For better or worse.

Check out Shot by Lammi. Great disc.
good band great tunes
I usually listen to metal.

But ska is where it's at.
gosoxchamps
Very high energy live show! Go see them! Been following Big D since the beginning at Middle East in Cambridge, MA.

Love this band. they are definitely one of my favorites. They do the 3rd wave ska just right.
jim2963
im gonna see them on Aug 1st in San Antonio again.
I'm going to see them again in St.Louis. Im really excited. they put on a great show to dance to : )
Dave isn't a great signer, but he is a good frontman because you have to admit he does have charisma and this ability to attract your attention. But agreed, noise complaint lyircs are down right atrocious.
dave mcwane in my opinion isn't a brilliant singer, just really talks, the band's pretty good though. i can't friggin stand noise complaint, lyrics for that song suck. period.
well they're AMAZING!!! noise complaint is the best drinking song ever! lol
these ghuys are all rightt, im only just starting to listen to them...
ok yeah I saw them, it was amazing
one of my favorite ska bands of all time, i cant wait to see them next week in OKC with Dropkick Murpheys!!! good times to come!, also they should defanantly have Gipsy Hill EP on here
