Gorilla Biscuits


Usually, when we suck we jump around a lot. When we're good, we stand still

Walter Schreifels, Longshot Fanzine, 1989

Gorilla Biscuits is a New York-based hardcore punk band consisting of Anthony “Civ” Civarelli, Walter Schreifels, Arthur Smilios, Alex Brown and Luke Abbey. They were very reactionary, trying to move the movement away from the militant rules that many hardcore straight-edge fans had created around their favorite bands. The main goal was to try and include anyone who wanted to take on their political views without worrying about the aesthetics, something that made them unpopular with many in the movement.
