Gorilla Biscuits - Pretty heavy stuff

Gorilla Biscuits band name origins - Male gorilla in SF zooHardcore punk band from New York City that apes its name from the drug methaqualone (also called mandrax). Pills with this active ingredient became fashionable in the sixties and seventies of the last century; they were intended to suppress insomnia, relax the muscles and bring about a narcotic effect. Because of their large size the pills - also known as quaaludes – were mockingly called ape shit. Later this was softened a bit to gorilla biscuits, the meaning remained the same though: monkey droppings.

Active: 1987-1991; 2006-present, USA
