THE BUSINESS – The Truth The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Truth
THE TRUTH THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH
Second comeback album from oi! originals
Strange to think that an album by the Business can be a decade old but still considered among their ‘new’ material, but that’s what happens when bands split and reform. After calling it a day in 1988, the band got back on the recording trail with the fine ‘Keep The Faith’ album in 1994, and built on it, taking deserved advantage of the respect shown by fans and new street punk outfits like Rancid, and even Blink 182. They apparently met up with the latter, and got on well, but understandably had more in common with the former, so it came as no surprise when it was revealed that Lars Frederiksen was to produce the 1997 Business album ‘TTTWTANBTT’ for Burning Heart in Europe and Taang! in the US. It was recorded at former Vibrators bassist Pat Collier’s studio, and the combination proved a winner, giving us a feisty album that stayed true to the band’s oi! and old school punk roots, but upped the pace a little.
