DS Photo Gallery: The Business, The Attack, Salita and Beantown Boozehounds – Church of Boston (6/25/14)

The Business

I’ve long considered The Business to be one of those bands that I should have seen when I had the chance. I recall being probably 17 when I heard “Smash The Discos” for the first time and feeling like I had already missed the boat. Along with bands like Cock Sparrer and Cockney Rejects and Sham 69, The Business represented such a specific moment in time that, as the years went on, seemed appealing and yet more and more distant.

However, 35 years after their debut (and mine, coincidentally), Micky Fitz and the boys are still at it. However, “the boys” have changed several times over the decades, creating, on paper at least, the impression that The Business circa 2014 were little more than a nostalgia act; Willy Mays playing for the Mets in 1973. Brett Favre playing for the Vikings in 2010. You get the idea. And yet, the band’s 2010 Sailor’s Grave Records release Doing The Business had more than a few bright spots, and their 2014 7-inch “Back In The Day” is one of the highlights of this year in street punk.

I can assure you that the 2014 edition of The Business is anything but a nostalgia act. Alongside high-octane Orlando punks The Attack, the UK four-piece rolled into Church of Boston on an early summer Wednesday evening. Local support came from the Beantown Boozehounds (whom, you might imagine, are a Boston band who fancy themselves a stiff beverage or twelve) and Salita, the new project featuring Kicked In The Head’s Gary Hedrick on vocals. The latter put on one of the more stellar “local opener” gigs that I’ve witnessed in quite some time. If only the sparse Wednesday night crowd had made its way to the front of the venue for any of the first three bands, we could have had ourselves a small but rowdy show for the ages.

Head below to see our photo gallery, featuring each of the night’s four bands.



DS Interview & EP Premiere: Charlie Bender (The Attack) on touring with punk legends, running a full-time business, and singing in five languages

For all but the proverbial 1% of bands, finding a way to carve out a living as a working musician is an undeniable struggle. To most, it means bouncing from menial labor, retail, dishwashing or bartending jobs (or some soul-sucking combination thereof) that’ll allow the time off to hit the road for a few weeks at a time every couple of months. The Attack‘s Brad Palkevich and Charlie Bender might be on to something. The guitarist and frontman, respectively, of the increasingly successful Orlando-based progressive political punk band are also co-owners of the Enemy Ink, a full-service custom screen printing and merch distribution company that is equally successful in its own right.

As the business has grown year-by-year, the band has hit the road for increasingly high profile shows with acts like Flogging Molly and the Misfits. We caught up with Charlie Bender just a few days before he and the rest of the band hit the road to begin a three-week jaunt with English Oi! legends The Business. We talked about balancing responsibilities at the office with the call of the road, what it’s like to tour with some of the more legendary bands of our time, and why on God’s green earth he decided to record vocals to the band’s latest single, “Under The Gun,” in five languages.

“What’s that,” you say? “Five languages?” You got that right. The band’s new single, due out Friday, June 13th, was written and recorded in English before being translated and re-recorded by Bender in Spanish, French, Italian and German. To get you ready for the release, you can stream the whole entire EP below! Check out our interview while you’re at it.
