Dying Scene Interview: The Business

It seems like punk bands have less and less staying power every year. The Business is certainly one band to challenge that status quo. Since their founding in 1979, they’ve been a fixture in the punk, skinhead, and oi! movement around the world. Sure, they’ve taken a few breaks, but they’re back together now and making new music. Hot on the heels of their latest release, Doing The Business (May 2010, Sailor’s Grave Records), I had a chance to catch up with the band during the their US tour to talk about American food, broken thumbs, and not bringing enough socks on tour. Check it out here.

Big thanks to Andy and Duane at Sailor’s Grave and of course the boys themselves for doing the interview and putting on a great show in DC.

I hadn’t heard of these dudes until today but I’m stoked this press release landed in my inbox. They’ve definitely got a hard sound to describe; sorta like oldies swing music meets punk rock…  Or a grittier, more punk rock version of World Inferno Friendship Society….  It’s best to just listen to the tracks or read this snippet from the press release:

Old Habits Die Hard is the band’s first all-original full length since 2002’s Fight Songs. Recorded at The Outpost (Dropkick Murphys, The Unseen, Blood For Blood, etc), Old Habits Die Hard is classic KON — a mystifying mixture of Joey Ramone huffing paint and Little Richard sniffing glue. Laced with pounding cadences of wild R&B and the punk rock that inspired it, all woven into one potent tapestry of rock n roll chaos.

The Business signs to Sailors Grave Records, releasing new album

sailors-grave-recordsIconic street-punk band, The Business, have officially joined the Sailors Grave Records roster with a new album slated for release on April 20th, 2010.  Here’s what label owner Andy King had to say about the union:

I couldn’t be more proud to be working with THE BUSINESS.  I can not think of any other band that more thoroughly embodies the deep history of the working class British Oi! movement than THE BUSINESS. Their fist-pumping anthemic music, uncompromisingly consistent aesthetic and message, and fierce staying power is unmatched. SGR fully embraces Micky and the boys with wide open arms and a hearty welcome.

You can listen to the track Mean Girl, which will appear on the as yet untitled new album, right here.
