The Business

The Business first emerged off the streets of South London in October 1979, leading a new wave of British punk that was hardly new wave at all. Instead, the Business, along with peers such as Angelic Upstarts, Blitz, and the 4-Skins, came out with a version of punk that was harder and more streetwise than ever, while still maintaining the anthemic qualities of the heavily influential Sham 69. Commonly referred to as Oi! or street-punk, these groups' most obvious brethren comprised the early American hardcore scene. The Business had a particular knack for churning out anthems, as evidenced by their first single, "Harry May," and followed by such enduring concert staples as "Drinking and Driving" and "Smash the Discos," both included on the CD reissue of the classic Suburban Rebels album. The band was on and off again throughout the '80s, but returned for a strong extended stay in 1994 with Keep the Faith. As usual, the disc mixed tales of football and drinking with wry social commentary and working-class singalongs. The lineup of Micky Fitz (vocals), Steve Whale (guitar), Lol Proctor (bass), and Mickey Fairbairn (drums) released No Mercy for You in July 2001; Hardcore Hooligan followed two years later. ~ Matthew Kantor, Rovi

Hilarious to see these keyboard warrior boneheads pretend they are real skinheads. Fantasy land princesses.
Skinheads are a rough bunch but not racist one bit.
Being a Skinhead has absolutely nothing to do with race no matter how many people they beat up or who those people are. .
That's why there are Skinheads of all races all over the planet.
Skinheads outnumber nazi trash boneheads 5 to 1.
Working Class Pride
Why is this a racial debate? Ok they may identify as the skinhead/pun k time, who aren't always racist, they even made a song called "it doesn't matter if your black or white"
The only thing that makes a skinhead is surface level s**t like short hair and those clothes you all want to be seen in. Underneath all that is just another desperate kid looking for an identity and sense if power and worth. You're being manipulated. Wake up.

They were still racially proud. Isn't sharps motto pride without prejudice? F**kin idiot original skins were known for paki bashing. Id call that racist black or not.

I remember there was a riot at one of their shows over the television tax. A bunch of skins pushed over a lorry. Then the bobbies came and everyone got into a bloody good row. Them were the days.

The more I listen to this band the more I love them.

Steal this Record is one of the greatest songs of all time.
What a nice raw edge they have.
