Billy Borgioli's long and storied history as a Boston rocker began in the late-1970's with his tenure as the lead guitarist for the one of the greatest bands in Boston rock history: The Real Kids. During that time the band was a fixture at the original Boston punk club "The Rathskellar", better known as the "Rat", as well as CBGB's in New York City.
The Real Kids recorded their eponymously-titled debut which featured searing guitar interplay between Billy Borgioli and vocalist/songwriter John Felice with former New York Dolls and Ramones patron Marty Thau of Red Star Records producing.
In the 1980s, Billy B. was playing guitar with John Felice & The Lowdowns ("Nothing Pretty" lp , 1987). After stepping out the shadow of Felice, Billy formed The Primitive Souls (with ex Real Kids bassist Allen "Alpo" Paulino (R.I.P) and the Varmints. He became its frontman and chief songwriter. In 1989, the band recorded the mini lp "Spread Out"(at Synchro Sound Studios, Boston) on the excellent australian label Dog Meat records (the second Dave Laing' label, after he let Grown Up Wrong!) on which you can also find the Primitive Souls 12''.
Unrelenting in their passion for aggressive 60's inspired rock n' roll, with the new release "Boston Cream", Billy Borgioli and his Varmints continue blasting out gritty, no-nonsense rock 'n' roll.
