the BUSINESS INCITING RIOTS the CODE 7'S $10 IN ADVANCE / $12 DAY OF SHOW DOORS: 9 PM / SHOW: 10 PM
the BUSINESS: Indisputably synonymous with anyone's recollection of the original surge of the British Oi! movement would have to be South London's working class skinhead heroes, THE BUSINESS. Shrouded in a mess of urban folklore, bombarded with tons of irrelevant controversy, and full of more perseverance than most new bands have in their little finger, THE BUSINESS are still here after 30 years. Having been instrumental in forming a musical aesthetic often referred to as 'pub rock', 'street rock', and 'punk n roll', THE BUSINESS are indelibly marked by tales of European football games, motorbike excursions, working class triumphs, bar room theatrics, factory life blues, and of course, the unavoidable anthems of the ever-scrutinized drinking and driving. Since forming in 1979, the band has releases more records than even some of the most long standing punk bands, toured all over the world, released records on labels such as EPITAPH, TAANG, BYO, TKO, CAPTAIN OI! and many more, as well as having Lars Frederickson (RANCID) produce one of their records and having shared a split release with DROPKICK MURPHYS. Although, the lineup has changed over the years, the message and the sound has not. Micky Fitz and the boys are poised to keep soldiering forward and keep the spirit of the streets rollin on into the future. Now, joining forces with Sailor's Grave Records, expect the legacy to continue with strength in 2010 and beyond.
INCITING RIOTS: In 1997, The Beer Goggles broke up. Ugly Lenny went on to play bass with The Confederats; and later, tiltWheel. Tim Boyle went on to play with Uncalledfor. Lenny & Tim came together in 2000 to start Inciting Riots. Dan Skum (drums) completed the band in 2001. Pegadeth joined on second guitar in May 2002. Dan left in July 2003 and was replaced by Matt Bastard a week later. Girth filled in on bass during Tim's vacation from society...till the end of 2004 when the original 4 piece line-up got back together to kick in the new year! Peggy left in July 2005 and was replaced by Mikey Dietz a week later....and left a few months after. Then, after 2 years of instability, John Klecker joined the Riots and we destroyed our city till 2009. In 2012, Skum moved back to town and the Riots got back together again with the addition of second guitarist, Gaylene. Stay tuned!
the CODE 7'S: Fueled by the absence of legends like Joe Strummer and Dee-Dee Ramone, The Code 7's push for a level of alarming honesty and integrity not commonly associated with today's punk rock and roll bands.
