iTunes Review

The Business’ debut is a slab of Dixie-fried energy rock that delivers endless thrills. J. Roddy Walston is a howler who slobbers all over the mic and pounds barrelhouse piano. Drummer Steve Colmus never lets up; on “Stop Rip and Roll” and “Used to Did,” he proves that his stomp is central to the group’s sound. But not everything is slathered in backwoods savagery. These guys are versatile enough to weave tricky Britpop harmonies into “Go Malachi,” “Nineteen Ought Four,” and a few other cool tunes.

The Best Album You've Never Heard

I came upon these guys about 2 months before this album came out. It was nice to see some good ol' rock and roll for a change. Every song on this album is fantastic, and is just a small precursor to the power packed punch that the live show delivers. J Roddy Walston & The Business is the best thing to shimmer and shine out of Baltimore since Edgar Allen Poe, Francis Scott Key, and Cal Ripken Jr.


.. I mean, not to take away from the tunes available for purchase which are absolutely "happening in real-time" as well; but LIVE let me just say "Oh, My!!!" they rock whatever venue has the pleasure of hosting them. I happened to experience the j roddy & the business in richmond, va at the camel and though the little coffee house isn't a designed to be a live music venue, merely experiencing them was more than worth it. These guys have got it, they make it happen and take you with them, let me tell you. Do not pass up a chance to see them perform near you. They are one of a kind ... brilliant. Oh yeah lest I forget, buy their stuff too, you will not be dissappointed.

Best band i have seen in awhile!

So i saw these guys last night at Lincoln Theatre in raleigh. And all i can say is wow! Like someone said this is pure Rock and Roll at its finest. I highly recommend seeing them first before buying the album. But i would probably still love it even if i had never seen them!
