Indisputably synonymous with anyone's recollection of the original surge of the British Oi! movement would have to be South London's working class skinhead heroes, THE BUSINESS. Shrouded in a mess of urban folklore, bombarded with tons of Irrelevant controversy, and with more perseverance in their little fingers than most new bands have, THE BUSINESS are still here after 30 years. Having been instrumental in forming a musical aesthetic often referred to as 'pub rock', 'street rock', and 'punk n roll', THE BUSINESS are indelibly marked by tales of European football games, motorbike excursions, working class triumphs, bar room theatrics, factory life blues, and of course, the unavoidable anthems of the ever-scrutinized drinking and driving. Since forming in 1979, they have released more records than most long standing punk bands, touredall over the world, and released records on labels such as Epitaph, Taang, BYO, TKO, and Captain Oi!. Lars Frederickson (RANCID) even produced one of their records and they've shared a split release with DROPKICK MURPHYS. Doing The Business is a new four-song studio EP with six additional live tracks, five of which are from the legendary Marquee recordings from 1982. Doing The Business is a new installment of the band's 30 years legacy and is a must-have for any fan's collection. Although the lineup has changed over the years, the message and the sound have not. Micky Fitz and the boys are poised to keep soldiering forward and keep the spirit of the streets rollin' on into the future. Now, joining forces with Sailor's Grave Records, expect the legacy to continue with strength in 2010 and beyond.
