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.
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.
