The Business – 1980-81 Complete Studio Collection

Out of stock


Ninth installment already of Daily Records’ Vintage Series, this time dedicated to The Business. The label turns their attention to the first formation of the band, including all their studio recordings conducted during 1980 and 1981. The Business were formed during this period by the ubiquitous Micky Fitz on vocals, Steve Kent on guitar, Martin Smith on bass, and Nick Cunningham on drums; the most surprising aspect of this period is the contrast between the usual street-punk sound of some songs as “Suburban Rebels”, “No Emotions”, or “Richard Lewis” and the much more pop-oriented tunes like the magnificent “Out in the Cold” or “Streets Where You Live” that fall closer to the sound of mod revival bands than other punk oi! bands of the time. On A side you will find the seven tracks that were officially published (on singles and compilation LPs) while the flip side features the band’s demo recordings. This release features an inner sleeve with information about all the recording sessions compiled on this album and also previously unseen graphic material.
