Biography

Seattle, United States (2004 – present)

Big Business is a / band formed in 2004. Originally from the Seattle area, the band relocated to Los Angeles in February, 2006. The band is currently signed to the record label they formed, Gold Metal.

Big Business is a power trio composed of Jared Warren of Karp, The Whip and Tight Bros From Way Back When, Coady Willis of The Murder City Devils and Dead Low Tide, and as of 2011, Scott Martin of 400 Blows.

In 2006, Jared and Coady were asked to join the Melvins who were once again without a bass player after Kevin Rutmanis had been added to the bassist morgue. They recorded A Senile Animal in July 2006, and started a U.S. tour in September with Big Business, among others, opening up. During these shows they were sometimes joined by Melvins drummer Dale Crover on guitar.

Early 2007 saw the release of Big Business’s second full length album Here Come The Waterworks, again on Hydra Head. The album was recorded in Seattle, shortly after they had finished the recordings for A Senile Animal with the Melvins. David Scott Stone - a musician who has often played and recorded with the Melvins - contributes guitar and moog synthesizer on the album.

In 2008 Melvins released a new album, Nude with Boots, which features Jarred and Coady as part of the band, and again on 2010 Melvins release The Bride Screamed Murder. Melvins are currently on tour supporting The Bride Screamed Murder, with Big Business opening for them.

    Scotts the nicest guy I ever met. Jared was nice too, but when I went to see them and the show was sold out he made it seem grim for me to get in. Scott told me to ignore his outlook and follow him, I was VIP'd into their show with the Sword for free.

    Considering I've been a Big Business fan for years, and had no idea a new album dropped until my friend mentioned the pitchfork review...I guarantee they'll be a spike.

    It'll be interesting to see if Big Business' Listening Trend spikes after Pitchfork's positive review.

    They are two really different bands, but I personally agree

    This band isn't even close to the awesomeness of KARP.

    If there is anything that 2013 has taught me, it's that a separation between Melvins and Big Biz is truly what's best for the two bands.

    Head for the Shallow was this band's best work. I like the rest of their stuff, Battlefields Forever included, but they just aren't nearly as LOUD.

    wow. battlefields forever is a catchy wrecking ball par excellence. so good. in the meantime the melvins mess up nearly completely without these two fellows.
