UTG PREMIERE: Big Neil (Tom Warren of The Front Bottoms) – “Never Had”

The Front Bottoms have exploded in the past year, and their success is due in no small part to a tremendous publicity campaign and an infectious live act that goes past core band members Brian Sella and Matt Uychich. The Front Bottoms‘ bassist, Tom Warren, is effectively Big Neil, and UTG is proud to bring you the debut track from his creative output.

Reigning from Demarest, New Jersey, Big Neil describes their start as something done “as a way to kill time.” Their first album was self-released in 2011, but an upcoming EP, Do Puppies Dream Of Herding
