Jared Warren – Big Business

August 19, 2011

Big Business is just a two piece. Two fellows making music that attacks you. Some call it heavy metal, sludge metal, or stoner rock, but really those categories don’t do them any justice. Those two fellows are Coady Willis and Jared Warren. Both of them have been playing music for a long time and in bands that you’ve always loved – Karp, Tight Bros From Way Back When, The WhipMurder City DevilsMelvins, and White Shit (who are also playing Total Fest X). Warren’s voice shouts and his dark persistent bass drives the music while Willis tears it up on the drums. It’s unrelenting and there’s nothing any listener seems to want more than for it to never stop. Big Business has played Total Fest before. The space was hot, cramped, and completely perfect for the onslaught of sound that they delivered.  And there’s bound to be more head banging to come when they play Friday, August 19th at the Badlander/The Palace.
