The Business

The Business

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 full of more perseverance than most new bands have in their little finger, 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, the band has releases more records than even some of the most long standing punk bands, toured all over the world, released records on labels such as EPITAPH, TAANG, BYO, TKO, CAPTAIN OI! and many more, as well as having Lars Frederickson (RANCID) produce one of their records and having shared a split release with DROPKICK MURPHYS.

Although the lineup has changed over the years, the message and the sound has 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 2013 and beyond.

The Attack

Classic, face-smashing, broken bottle punk is all but lost on the Pitchfork-worshipping, women's jeans-wearing masses whose idea of youth rebellion is going to see American Idiot on Broadway. Well, with that being said, allow yourself to feel the old school fury of the Attack. Formed by Charlie Bender, one-time frontman for the Orlando, Florida-based ska band the Spitvalves, and his partner in the acclaimed screen printing company Enemy Ink, Brad Palkevich, on guitar alongside bassist Mikey Cortes and drummer Tito Esquiaqui, this quartet delivers the kind of vintage melodic hardcore that will take true punkers right back to the days of CBGB's Sunday matinees on Of Nostalgia and Rebellion, a self-released call-to-arms featuring 12 tracks loaded with punishing breakdowns, gang-style singalongs, and riffs as crushing as a curb sandwich. Fans of the Cro-Mags, Lifetime, and Agnostic Front will certainly relish in the rage of such key tracks as "Prove It", "Matters", and an incendiary cover of CCR's "Bad Moon Rising" that just might prove John Fogerty had roots in punk rock after all.
