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.
