Big Business - Mind the Drift Vinyl LP
Big Business Mind the Drift Vinyl LP
Jared Waren (Karp) and Coady Willis (Murder City Devils) formed Big Business in 2003 in Seattle, WA. They released their first two full-length albums in 2005 (Head For The Shallow) and in 2007 (Here Come the Waterworks). Producer/engineer extraordinaire Toshi Kasai (Willie Nelson, Foo Fighters) had been playing guitar with Big Business for a while by the time they cut their third album Mind the Drift which was issued in 2009.
And in the months before the record was made, Jared and Coady had been touring pretty heavily with the Melvins which served as an obvious influence. "I think we wanted to elevate the songs and make it really grand, like a Queen record," says Coady. "It's definitely the hardest record we've made to this day.
The session was plagued with technical glitches from the get-go, so it felt like we never picked up any momentum. To my memory, it always felt like we were under this insane time crunch every step of the way. So as you can imagine the fun factor was pretty low. I think we learned an important lesson about how we best operate in the studio, and what we needed to have fun and feel creative and comfortable."
