Big Business back in business
Release Date: March 19th, 2007
Artist: Big Business
Title: Here Come the Waterworks
Catalog #: HYH-121
Label: Hydra Head Records
Big Business is bigger and better than ever, with better hair, bigger hits, and the kind of overwhelming Norman Schwarzkopf-style force that rolls like thunder, stings like a missile, and—above all—takes no shit. On Here Come the Waterworks, their second full-length, bassist/vocalist Jared Warren and drummer Coady Willis unfurl all the mammoth riffs, furious vocals and blazing drum work you’ve come to expect—nay, DEMAND—from LA’s answer to Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday. No, wait... make that Sonny Crockett and Rico Tubbs. Either way, there’s a new sheriff in town—two of ’em, actually.
This is the new Big Business album, and it's better than their first: harder, faster, and catchier. But since that first long player was so damn good, we're left with no choice but to already proclaim Here Come the Waterworks as one of the top releases of 2007.
Putting on Here Come the Waterworks induces instant first pumping. Its ethos is triumph and absolute PMA -Positive Mental Attitude. In fact, you're likely to find your mind wandering back to the best scenes in Vision Quest, and that closing moment of greatness in Over the Top when Stallone turns his ball cap around and pummels the competition.
Big Business always tour the shit out of their records because they're rock machines. I mean, they even record tour EPs! Plan to catch them in your town and at festivals this summer laying waste to the competition. They're already scheduled for Roadburn, an awesome festival in Holland that will see them join Neurosis, OM, Pelican, and many others.
