About Big Business
BIG BUSINESS has two guys in it. It is spelled here in capital letters so you know we’re talking about a serious band. Jared Warren plays the bass guitar and sings. He used to be in this band KARP and then he was in this other band for awhile name of TIGHT BROS FROM WAAAY BACK WHEN. Coady Willis plays the drums and sometimes yells and stuff. He used to be in the MURDER CITY DEVILS and probably some other bands you haven’t ever heard of. BIG BUSINESS put out their first full-length record out in January 2005. HYDRAHEAD RECORDS was the label, HEAD FOR THE SHALLOW was the title. Lots of touring followed. Adventure! Then, a mysterious phone call led to a secret meeting with the MELVINS. BIG BUSINESS became part of the MELVINS with Buzz Osborne on guitar and vocals, Jared assuming bass and vocal duties, and Coady playing second drumset alongside Dale Crover. This new lineup recorded an album in the summer of 2006 and called it (A) Senile Animal. Out Oct. 10th on IPECAC records. But Wait! BIG BUSINESS has also just recorded a new record! “HERE COME THE WATERWORKS”. It was produced by record producer PHIL EK (Modest Mouse, Built to Spill, Band of Horses) and is going to be dropped on your face by Hydra Head on March 6 of 2007. LISTEN NOW!! NEW SONG “GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE” IS UP AND RUNNING. YOU LOVE IT!
