NO BUSINESS: Self-titled: Cassette

In the vein of X’s album Los Angeles, No Business really straddles the line between hard rock and punk. Songs are written with complex and layered melodies with straight-up rock hooks and dark surf guitar. Tough girl vocals and the swift throb of menacing bass sets the tone. They aren’t taking any shit. A true standout on this cassette, by far, is “Mind Machine.” It has the most incredible tough-as-nails riff. Brainworm for days!
