This was the last show of Gorilla Biscuits' reunion tour - @ CBGB - Sunday September 2, 2006.

Andrew from the Daily News was there too.

HR from Bad Brains played a surprise set of three songs before GB took the stage. I was too far from the stage to snap a picture, so here's one from Flickr:

Gorilla Biscuits @ CBGB

HR is playing the Delancey on Friday (Sept 8).

Bold played before HR.

John Porcelly (Bold, Projext X, Youth of Today) and Toby Morse (H20) each played one song with GB. Porcell did "Straight Edge Revenge" and Toby and Civ did Warzone's "As One." HR did "Leaving Babylon," the Beatles' "Day Tripper" and some other song. It was cool and unexpected. The crowd went crazy for him. [song titles from the comments in previous post]

GB played BB King's the night before with Leeway and Murphy's Law. AOL's indie blog has a nice review. Here's a video....

Two new GB songs at their MySpace.

Their reunion show from 2005 at CBGB is gonna be a DVD.

CBGB closes for good in mid-October, 2006.

yeah, i grew up worshipping GB and never got to see them. getting the chance to see them now at CB's was like being in a dream. so amazing.

these guys are like lifetime... its good they've come back, so people can realize that they were stupid when they were 16 and lived-and-died for these bands that simply ARE NOT GOOD.

Posted by nick | September 6, 2006 2:47 AM

seems like someone pissed in your cornflakes, brah. don't you realize reunions like GB or Lifetime leave more precious room at shows for you to "freak out" to awful shit like Gang Gang Dance. enjoy.

Posted by d | September 6, 2006 3:51 AM

there should be a question mark in there somewhere. mea culpa.

Posted by d | September 6, 2006 3:52 AM

Phew! It seems really is a great party. But you know what I hate in this kind of full pack concerts. Perspiration!

Posted by liz76 | September 6, 2006 5:37 AM

Porcell did "Dance Floor Justice" actually, which is of course off the legendary Project X 7".

Posted by gurple | September 6, 2006 9:11 AM

haha, who's the bear-chested twat in the bottom pic?

roid rage knobs.

"its good they've come back, so people can realize that they were stupid when they were 16".

Yeah, bands like GB that actually encouraged people not to give in and keep trying are stupid. I (like many others) have based a lot of my life on their words... Think before you speak next time.

BV, you tool those pics? It's nice to see a blogger taking pics straight from the trenches. Excellent work!

Posted by Klaus_Kinski | September 6, 2006 10:25 AM

BB kings is no place for hardcore. It's a joke that they play this place and not a cheaper venue like there aren't places to play in NYC. NYHC? All they care about is packin' 'em in and gettin' paid. Go buy a beer or a 7" and t shirt and see how much you spend. Nigga please. I hope this reunion shit ends soon, a new venue appears and then maybe some new hardcore will happen.

The big GB "security" guy was a riot. Never seen someone throw kids into the crowd with a smile! Great great show. Picked up the tour 7", but I have no turntable.

Also, I heard rumors about the "last" show. If it happens, I will be amazed.

Posted by Anonymous | September 6, 2006 10:33 AM

why would you buy a 7" without a way to play it? Oh yeah I forgot.. you don't need a turntable to wait for a few years and sell it on ebay like everyone else

dang, ray of today is yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Plenty of shows around. Try ABC No Rio

"why would you buy a 7" without a way to play it? Oh yeah I forgot.. you don't need a turntable to wait for a few years and sell it on ebay like everyone else"

I could sell it right now on Ebay and profit quite nicely. I will get another turntable soon when I build a platform for it. I also purchased the latest Uzeda vinyl on Saturday. Want to give me shit for that one as well?

"BB kings is no place for hardcore. It's a joke that they play this place and not a cheaper venue like there aren't places to play in NYC."

are you an idiot? they just played a month's worth of shows at independent venues across the country. and yeah, they did play B.B. King's, the pictures above are from CB's. if that ain't a cheap venue, then i don't know what is.

also, don't forget, NYC hardcore shows have often taken place in large venues. Ever heard of the Superbowl of Hardcore?

POrcell and Arthur are about the only one who doesn't look 16 years older. I guess that no drinking, no drugs, and vegan lifestyle has worked out for Porcell. Also, will someone get Arthur to freakin eat... jezz.

Nick you are a muppet. Lets fight over it. I would take great pleasure in puncturing your head in front of your girlfriend...family..whoever.

Posted by XXX | September 6, 2006 4:35 PM

those pics are interesting. is that crowd actually having a good time at the show? i don't see any arms crossed. very interesting.

Posted by Dan | September 6, 2006 6:30 PM

always wondered why the hardcore kids and the Chelsea gays never got together-- there's only like one degree of separation

Great pictures! This show was amazing. After all these years I finally caught Gorilla Biscuits. I made an MP3 of the last song HR played, it's on the blog.

I like how someone wastes their time coming onto a forum to bitch about the band the forum is about, thats like walking up to a bunch of crips and saying "bloods up crips down" its starting shit on purpose, like for real dude go jack off in the corner or something your opinion isnt valued here.

Posted by Ace | February 8, 2007 8:57 PM

Back in the day....when 80's Hardcore was around the scene was awesome! Now it's turned into a bunch of f**king bands selling out?! NOOOOOOOOOOO! F**K THAT! Only way mainstream people should even BE at a Hardcore show is if they're going to help, not harm the scene. Unfortunately...they f**king ruined my scene and I hate that sh*T. It mothef**king sucks!!!!!
How about I punch the holy living sh*t out of you for dissing the scene and talking big like you owned it when you never f**king even went to a goddamned show! I did and I remember how it was and I miss the Skinheads beating the sh*t out of bullies like they used to do in the Skinhead slamdancing pits! F**K people being forced into having to wear motherf**king new mainstream crap shoes and clothes!!!!

From the looks of it, it seems that you were enjoying yourself in the party! Gorilla Biscuit seems to be really popular, huh?

That's one awesome party (or parties, rather)! Would love to attend one soon!

Posted by Keyword Research Tool | August 25, 2011 9:56 PM

Love the convoluted tattoos! I bet these guys really give out their performance because people can be seen as greatly enjoying!

Posted by BBQ Islands | August 28, 2011 4:22 PM

The picture's show how great the gig was.How I wish, I have the chance to be there. And enjoy the party with GB.

Posted by BBQ Islands | August 29, 2011 5:43 AM

check out RAY CAPPO now...
back to HARDCORE
the REAL DEAL...
YOUTH OF TODAY
247
goodbye hindu fever...

Posted by joel gensbugel | January 4, 2013 5:44 PM

dance floor justice. lame. the lyrics read like an elementary school student.
if nobody associated with YOT or GB or whatever were in this band nobody would care.
why are people paying disgusting amounts of $ for this?

AND....GB have been playing out rather regularly for years. Time to record something new.
I liked them and their positive energy and non-Metal riffs but it seems hard to relate to them now.
